When we first got married, I LOVED the home we created. I loved our couch, our chairs, the colors of the walls, everything about that house. The backyard was a slice of heaven with a jacuzzi, a fire pit, a patio set, a BBQ, a WATERFALL, seriously everything you’d want in a little outside oasis. … Continue reading

tragedy and fear

Does anyone else avoid the news for fear that something else has happened in the world? Every time I turn on the news (in spite of the bias of the news channels), I get very sad and very scared. I am saddened by the loss of innocent lives, by the wars, by the fact that … Continue reading

We just got home from a trip to the beautiful (and freaking FREEZING) Omaha, Nebraska. I have family there and we try to get out there at least once a year to visit. This time, we figured April would be the perfect time to go visit being that the temperatures would be close to 100 … Continue reading

It’s a gift both my husband and I both share. Well, … Continue reading

As I was getting ready to write this week’s favorite things, I realized that not all my favorite things are actual THINGS… So, it wouldn’t be fair for me to try to post ITEMS each week that I love because, eventually, I will run out of items that I love. I’m going to be posting … Continue reading
