#ftf – brunch (and #birthdaybrunch is even better!)

This past year I’ve started a new favorite thing…brunch. I’ve loved meeting up with a friend, or two, typically on a friday or Saturday morning. For whatever reason, I just feel more relaxed and enjoy just “being” for a few hours when brunch is involved. I’ve enjoyed this new favorite part of my week with many different… Continue reading #ftf – brunch (and #birthdaybrunch is even better!)

#ftf – Redeemed Marriages

ftf – “Favorite Things Friday”…and this one CERTAINLY qualifies! It’s been a long 5 months. Earlier today my daughter (along with her husband) shared a really authentic post about what they have been through the last few years, and specifically since the start of 2017.

#IsAJtheone – April 8, 2016

This past weekend was a BIG one for our family. Well, not just “big”…HUGE! After a quick change from the original plan, our daughter’s sweet boyfriend became her FIANCE! It’s a fun, sweet story (one I hope to document on another day), but  today I want to talk about a conversation I had with my dad…a… Continue reading #IsAJtheone – April 8, 2016


#SwissCakeRollsAndMarriage – October 7, 2015

I’ve been told (more times than I can count) that I “married well”. Our closest friends (ok…and my family) might have even mentioned that Tom is definitely the “better half” in our marriage. While the man can make me TOTALLY CRAZY sometimes – this morning is one more example of how my people are correct. I’ve… Continue reading #SwissCakeRollsAndMarriage – October 7, 2015
