A Change in the Game

I work most evenings, so for months, my sister would make dinner for the family. Well, my sister got a job (yay!) and started working 9-5 last week…which means making dinner is up to me again! I love cooking, so I don’t mind that the responsibility has fallen on me, and fortunately for me, my …

It’s been a while…

Wow – it’s been over 3 months since I’ve posted anything – I’m a bad blogger! There have been a few changes around the house these past few months – mostly small things, like rearranging rooms, taking down wallpaper, and choosing paint colors.

Katie’s Graduation Party

Today, we had Katie’s graduation party! We were so fortunate to have a beautiful day, especially after last night’s weather! We had severe thunderstorm warnings, severe thunderstorm watches, flash flood warnings, tornado warnings – it was crazy! A tornado hit not far from our house – we were very fortunate that it avoided us. The …

The Music Box

When I was younger, we used to visit my grandmother’s house at least once a week. When we weren’t playing or helping her with something around the house, I used to go into her bedroom (which is now my bedroom) and play one of her music boxes. It was always in the same spot, and …

Cherries!

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! Let’s take today to remember those who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the many freedoms we often take for granted. As I mentioned in my previous blog about wineberries, we’re so lucky to be in an area where we can pick all types of fruits. I’ve been checking …
