Evie at dance class

Life Lately Let them praise his name with dancing… Psalms 139: 3-4 Our miracle girl started dance class this week. Dance class. If you know how Evie’s story started, you know what a miracle she is.

She loves all things musical and jumped right into participating in dance class, even though she is by far the youngest in the group. […]

We played with the water table… On Memorial Day, several of the kids and my MIL were able to come over for lunch. Our daughter Lauren brought her new puppy, Teddy. Oh, he’s precious. I made my mom’s recipe for “Rhubarb Crunch” for dessert. It’s easy […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Bowl

Naked Nutrition Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie Bowl is my favorite quick breakfast right now. Yum. I mean, seriously. Why have I never made this before now?

I particularly love the combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and banana on my acai base, so this bowl with […]

This boozy Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Cake is the perfect dessert for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, but also an easy and unique cake for any occasion. For St. Patrick’s Day, we usually make Reuben sandwiches for dinner. Some fries on the side, a bottle of Guinness and we’re all set. That’s how we roll around here–“fancy like Applebee’s on a date night” and stuff. But wait! There’s more. If we really want to get wild, we add this boozy dessert […]

Life Lately Some sweet pics of our girl from this week… She did a little modeling for Gigi. The first pic is of Evie wearing the dress her mama wore on her first birthday almost 28 years ago. 😍 The second is the Minnie sweatshirt I got her in preparation for our epic family Disney adventure in a few months. Still a little room to grow into it, which is perfect. And here she is enjoying her Kindermusik class for […]

How to Recreate a Favorite Memory Using Candles

Recreate a favorite memory using candles by designing a display with special items and the perfect scent to trigger past magical moments. Have you ever caught the whiff of a scent that transports you back to a particular place and time, almost as if you were there, experiencing that moment all over again? This is called a “scent memory” and researchers say that this type of memory tends to be more emotionally powerful than memories that are triggered by sounds […]
