My Christmas Lesson

I had a horrible day on December 23rd. Our holiday season was very busy this year.  We were gone a lot, we had a lot of obligations.  We had holiday parties, LOTS of work, we bought gifts, we did this, we did that, we celebrated, we were here, there, and everywhere, and up to our elbows in Christmas cheer.  It was fun, and there were jingle bells, and Christmas cookies, and twinkly lights, but man, did I overdo it.  And it all[Read more]

Scenes from Thanksgiving + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving break, with lots of good food, tons of good family time, and maybe a pajama day (or two).  We were able to spend time with family- we were in Blue Ridge last weekend and in Aiken early last week- and then were able to spend the rest of the week at home, just our little family of five.

5 Ideas for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Hello friends!  I Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!  We spent it at home, our sweet little family, and had a wonderful day.  I prepped several dishes Wednesday night, so my cooking on Thursday wasn’t bad at all, but actually relaxing!  In fact, I think it was one of my best Thanksgiving dinners that I have prepared.  And, as expected, we have plenty of leftovers to last us at least until tomorrow, if not the rest of the weekend! And if[Read more]
