This + That

My big kids are away at camp this week. I cannot deal. How are they old enough to leave for so long? Granted, it’s just day camp and they’re with their aunt in the evenings. But still, I’m a ball of anxious energy waiting to get them back in my arms! Also, that big guy […]

Play Room Magnet Board

Have you seen all the darling magnet sets in Target’s Dollar Spot? Technically they’re $3 … but still, not a bad deal! I grabbed a car set, a space set, and a princess/unicorn set for my kids and then realized that our fridge is the only magnet surface in the house. Tiny problem, because, as […]

Living like this is balm for weary hearts. He. Is. Good. Daily I say it out loud, I pray it deep in my soul, because in the midst of […]

Greek Quinoa Salad

My cooking is super seasonal. It’s all soups and pasta in the fall and winter and sandwiches and salads in the summer. So, since the warm weather has arrive (and seems to be staying), I’ve been rolling out all my favorite salad recipes! This week a friend and I made Greek Quinoa Salad in a […]
