GUYS! I feel like I say this every Friday, but MAN ALIVE what a week. It started off innocently and normal enough (whatever that means) but then Tuesday W and I came down with a nasty little stomach bug that rendered us totally useless. Nate took such good care of us, and we were feeling […]

Three Organic Salad Dressing Recipes

January 18, 2016

My inbox is filled with emails most days – business communication, invitations, marketing pitches, personal correspondence. These days, however, my inbox has filled up with another kind of message: the annual “how to pick a New Year’s Resolution and Stick With It” email from every person who has ever seen my email address. In our […]

W – W – W- W – W – WEEKEND!!! Who has two thumbs and is amped for a few days off? THIS GIRL!   I’m hoping for a good night’s sleep, endless coffee (but for enjoyment, not necessity), a girls’ night, a date night, a day of rest – there’s a lot going on, […]

Boy oh boy, do I have a nice little series for y’all this week!   See, over Christmas we went to lunch with family, and on the menu was this amazing kale salad. I didn’t actually order it, but Nate’s grandmother did and sent the leftovers home with us. The next day I remembered the […]

WHOA this week was nuts! I feel like every time I feel that I’m starting to get life figured out, a curve ball gets thrown my way and I’m back to square one. For example, Monday was a totally normal day and then BAM! Around mid-afternoon I started getting this weird feeling in my eye. […]

9 Years

January 6, 2016

9 years ago today I took this man’s hand and we did just what you see here: we jumped wildly into the future together. We didn’t know that it would include two cross-country moves, a church plant, numerous jobs, rental homes, mortgages, car payments, and insurance. We couldn’t dream of two more amazing boys, and […]

Arancini Di Riso with Spicy Tomato Balsamic Dipping Sauce

January 4, 2016

Let’s talk New Year’s, shall we? I remember once upon a time I was terribly terrified of the whole Y2K thing.
