Hello, y’all!  I hope you had a fabulous Fourth of July celebration week in spite of the sweltering heat!  Not surprisingly, life threw a curveball at me and put a wrench in my travel plans.  I was supposed to be heading to New Jersey on the 4th to help take care of a new little […]

Hello, friends!  If you’re reading this, you haven’t fully melted yet.  Amazing!  The past few days have been the hottest EVER recorded for the Atlanta area.  When it’s 106 degrees outside in Georgia, it pretty much feels like you have to swim through the humidity just to move.  You can actually slice the air with […]

Hello there, friends.  It’s a peaceful Monday morning, and I find myself in awe.  I started my day by reading this inspiring update about Georgia girl Aimee Copeland’s progress.  I was struck by her perspective.  After losing limbs and nearly her life, Aimee articulated her feelings while enjoying her first hour of sunshine in 49 […]

Well, hello there, friends!  It’s a beautiful Thursday afternoon, and I am thankful to be back in flip flops and tank tops!  That cold snap was scary- for my body and my mind.  I was concerned that all the vegetables in the ground, trying to grow into something wonderful, would be squashed by dropping temperatures.  […]

These beautiful red peppers are stuffed with a couscous salad and topped with a mixture of low fat Greek yogurt and egg.  I think the presentation is so much more pleasing to the eye than the traditional stuffed peppers that stand straight up, […]

Pizza.  It’s a staple in our home.  I’m pretty sure my husband could eat it every day, even though he used to work at a pizza restaurant and was elbow deep in flour and cheese most of the time.  It’s just a meal that we don’t ever get bored of eating- probably because we never […]

Loved your posted Labor Day Adventure. What……………3 holes in one. Got to witness that guy playing mini golf with my own eyes!

Sometimes, life gets tricky.  The past few weeks have been riddled with worry over a very close friend who got sick out of the blue with a blood infection.  He spent 10 days in the hospital in addition to two ER trips.  Thankfully, he is out of the woods and home now, recovering.  Trying to […]

I think it’s safe to say that with the passing of Labor Day came the cool weather.  I’ve got a scarf around my neck and a blanket on my lap.  I expected more of a gradual change than a dramatic dip in the temperature, but you can’t mess with Mother Nature.   In celebration of […]
