Our First 365 Days

A wise man told me back in May that this is a year of firsts for our family. My first birthday, first Father's Day, first 4th of July, on and on without my Dad. I explained to him that we made every day special not just holidays while I appreciated what he was sharing with... Continue Reading →

Making Each Day Count

Meetings, cross country meet, outdoor music festival in our beautiful downtown City Park and a Sunday full of shopping, a lunch date with my GW and dinner with friends. I have always said if you aren't... Continue Reading →

Guess The Wine

Last Saturday, my most fabulous friend, Sandra hosted a Guess The Wine Party. I have been so interested in these and was even more excited to go! If you haven't figured it out by now, I love wine. White wine mostly. I am not a snob when it comes to wine. I do have my... Continue Reading →

Girls Trip to The Greenbrier River

Back in July, my bestie/sister (Ann), asked if I wanted to go on a long weekend girls trip with her, Mar June & four of her besties. After making sure my calendar was accommodating, I gladly responded ABSOLUTELY! The stars had aligned perfectly for us both to have the same weekend free and clear to... Continue Reading →

Holy Brussel Sprouts

I don't know about you but roasted Brussel sprouts are like Lays potato chips to me. You can't have just one. With that being said, I ate the ENTIRE pan. Dang it. Friends of ours own a restaurant in town called Colony Club. (Be sure to check them out on Facebook & Instagram). When I... Continue Reading →

Where do people get off?

I just spent the last hour and 48 minutes on the phone with one of my closest and dearest friends talking about where do people get off thinking they can basically say anything and do anything to someone. Is it the social media era where people hide behind keyboards, monitors and hand held devices where... Continue Reading →

Not your story to tell

My intercessor has encouraged me to share what I wrote on my personal Facebook page on April 28, 2017 about the passing of my Dad in regards to those who feel the necessity to share someone else's story without their permission and the need to be "first'. I would like to take a moment to... Continue Reading →

True North

GW took me away for the weekend at the beginning of the month to celebrate my birthday and he invited some of our nearest and dearest friends to join us. We spent an entire day and evening together. At one point I realized that my cell phone hadn't needed to be on a charger at... Continue Reading →

One Less Place Setting

A month ago... as I sit here and hit backspace several times... not wanting to type the words... let alone admit the words.... we have one less at our table for family dinners. My hero, my first love, the one I hold all others up to, my everything, my Daddy went home. And because I... Continue Reading →

Dishes In The Sink

Sunday, I ran the dishwasher three times. Saturday, we had guests over for dinner. One can gage a successful dinner party by the number of times you run the dishwasher. I ran mine, three times Sunday. And that's not counting the number of items I washed by hand because,of course, there are certain items you... Continue Reading →

Decisions

Decisions Are you led by your mind, heart or gut? Recently, I've had to make some decisions that I've led with my mind, heart but mainly gut. Because when your gut speaks to you, I've found, it's the Lord. Yes, Jesus. Signs come in many forms. Even text messages. Even emails while you're text messaging.... Continue Reading →
