She is an amazing mother, wife, aunt, sister, daughter, singer, Christian and Southern cook. She loves the most simple things in... Continue Reading →

Uncomfortable Conversation

Last week, I took Miss M to the DMV to update her State ID as she changed her last name a year ago this month (July) to incorporate my maiden name, and to have the same name as me and to have her Pappy's last name as well. Yes, we are those ladies who hyphenate.... Continue Reading →

When People Disappoint

For myself, when decisions have been made that were out of my control; I chose to stand up, brush myself off and move... Continue Reading →

Take Time to Slow Down

Rush here. Rush there. Do this. Do that. Thinking of that while I'm doing this. Story of my life. It really hit me yesterday as GW and I went to Columbus for a couple of nights to celebrate wedding weekend with family and friends. We went to one of our favorite spots, Cooper's Hawk Winery,...

Cheers to Summer & Hydrangeas

Cheers to Summer and Hydrangeas! These are my absolute favorite flowers. I pray that these take and grow. Unfortunately, the last bunch we planted didn't make it.  (my hand looks chubby, my nail polish is chipped and I have a bug bite on my hand from last night's porch party celebrating a friend's birthday but...

Father’s Day 2.0

I sat down to write about my second Father's Day "without" my Dad when it began to thunder. I am still smiling. Why, you ask? Because if you read my tribute words that I spoke at his service, you know that every time it thunders we say it is THE Paul Williams building mansion sites... Continue Reading →

Wisdom Teeth

Today, Miss M had her wisdom teeth extracted. Every night since booking the appointment, I have awoke in the middle of the night thinking about it. By the Grace of God, she is a healthy child. She's only had to have blood drawn once. So today, I worried how she would handle the IV, the... Continue Reading →

Before I go any further, let me explain what Ohio Chautauqua does. It is a community event that comes to town under a big red and white tent offering living history performances...

Grilled Romaine Chicken Salad

Remember my statement under My Love of Cooking & Entertaining ~ When I was younger, I wasn’t the best at it but who is right? I mean, I wouldn’t have made the show Worst Cooks In America or anything like that but I did fix a lot of hamburger and chicken. I thought that grilled marinated chicken... Continue Reading →

Banana Split Cake

As soon as warmer weather arrives, I switch modes of cooking. I grill out all year long but I do change what I cook. Anyone else like that? I don't cook chili in the Summer nor do I fix soups.. Just Fall and Winter. Same with my desserts. This Banana Split Cake I am about... Continue Reading →

15 Minute Writing Prompt Challenge

I have sat here for 2 hours thinking, contemplating, wondering, worrying and searching to do the 15 Minute Writing Prompt Challenge set upon fellow writers in a Facebook group in which we belong. Hell even Siri didn't want to cooperate by setting a timer for 15 minutes. I am positive I am not doing it the... Continue Reading →

394

Thirteen months today to be exact. I can't believe that a month has flown by since the marking of the year that my Dad went home. So many times I have wanted to sit down and write about that day. The love and support from friends who are more than friends ~ they are family... Continue Reading →

363

363 ~ that is the number of days that have seem to have flown by and have crawled all at the same time. 363 ~ that is the number of days I have moved forward with one foot in front of the other and forged on with some days being better than others. Very few... Continue Reading →

We made it…..

It just dawned on me this morning after I replied to a text that I received from my Mom's neighbor thanking me for the cake I sent home to her last weekend that the Family Dinner we held at our home in March of this year completed our year of firsts without setting a place... Continue Reading →
