The key…

I’m going to piggyback off of a dear friend’s instagram post today.  It really struck a chord with me and I am going to try to expand my thoughts on it a little bit.  If you are on instagram check titus24fitness out y’all.  She is such an inspiration to me. I often talk about waiting…

Cravings for Chocolate Cake

Inevitably, on the weekends all the food that I shouldn’t be eating starts calling me… sometimes I give in and sometimes I get in the kitchen and experiment.  Usually, if determined enough, an alternative to sugar laden, carb explosive foods can be found or invented. This weekend I wanted all the chocolate cake. Like, SERIOUSLY,…

Changing My Life

If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that I LOVE sugar and I LOVE to bake.  This means that me and the slim side of life have never been friends.  In the past to shed excess weight, I have done Atkins/low carb/ketogenic eating.  This works for my mind and body…

Unpause

I can hardly remember how to do this. Last post was in March, seems like a lifetime away. Life got busy. My head space was not allowing for blogging. Three birthdays came and went. Another animal was added to our family.  A car died and a new one had to be purchased.  Homeschooling continued on,…

Valentine’s Day Treats and Family Time

It’s March Madness month!  I am determined to beat the madness and chaos and make an effort to post more.  The kids and I have been busy, busy in the kitchen so we have loads of pictures and recipes to put up.  In other words, no excuses! We are really starting to enjoy summer here….

Snapshots of Our Summer

Two months since my last post.  Two months of summer holidays.  Two months of celebrations. Two months of no routine.  Two months of memories… We Feasted. We Played. We Bonded. xx  

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This morning as I was cleaning up I saw these sad fruits staring at me… pleading with me… not to throw them away,but to make them beautiful again. So we did. After a quick search on Pinterest for the Best Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Ever, one of our favourite movies, Christmas Vacation, went in the dvd…

The Heaven’s Declare His Glory

I have a slight obsession with clouds, especially when they look like marshmallows and the sun is streaking through them just right. They are magnificent, aren’t they? While taking an early morning flight this week, I was able to experience my love for clouds up close and fully spectacular. I truly believe that: The heavens…

An Extremely Sensitive Soul

  It is so easy to let life overwhelm you. I don’t have a lot in my life to stress, upset or even anger me. I certainly haven’t been through hugely traumatic events or disasters that would warrant an overly anxious reaction. Lord willing, this will continue.  Yet, somehow I feel totally overwhelmed sometimes. Stressed…

Fun times

We have had a busy few weeks… here’s a little bit of what we have been up to: We started working on a new pond for the yard. We had an amazing over-the-top, way-too-much-food brunch to celebrate Father’s Day. This resulted in a challenge to see who could actually get their burgers in their mouth…  easier…

Guest Writer!*

*For part of our homeschooling adventures, Master 9 tried his hand at blogging today.  I think he did a pretty good job!  Hope you enjoy his take on Winging It By Grace. xx Hi, I am today’s guest writer. My mom writes this blog. Sometimes I read it. I am 9 years old. I like…

Sunshine and Lemons

Yesterday morning we awoke to sunshine streaming through the curtains and blue skies.  I also found I had an abundance of lemons in the fridge that needed to be used asap. What to do, what to do… why Lemon Meringue Pie of course! This pie is delicious!  I love the tartness of the lemon curd paired with…
