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…

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

I mentioned in my last post that we recently celebrated Christmas in July.  This is always a fun few days for us as we get all of our favorite Christmas movies out, do lots of crafts, and hang out as a family.  Hubby tries to take a couple of days off work so we can…

Where Does the Time Go?

Every morning, I wake up and think, “I must write a blog post today.”  I had been enjoying writing so much and hearing all of your thoughts and suddenly life got in the way. But you know what, that’s a good thing! We had 2 weeks of school holidays.  Here school is divided into 4…

The World is Hurting

There is so much going on right now it is really hard to comprehend sometimes.  Anger, Fear, Hate, Racism, Bigotry, and pure Evil seems to be surrounding us at every corner.  It’s scary.  It’s scary for us and it’s scary for our beautiful children and future generations. What do we do? We pray.  We get…

4th of July? Time for more pie!

Happy 4th of July!!!  Here where I live it is already the 5th, we were allowed to start our celebrations a day early, and being American myself, I always stress that we are now allowed two days of celebrations!  Birthdays, holidays, family traditions… we spread the joy and make it worthwhile! As you can probably…

When did I grow up?

Do you ever wonder when you grew up? Now I am not talking literally growing up in terms of height, age and stature.  It’s more of an inside thing I’m meaning. I watch my children as they play with a sense of awe and wonder. They have a fantastical imagination. They see joy in EVERYTHING….

I’m Staying Here… It’s Nice Here.

Apple Pie and Christmas Movies

I’m not sure which thought came first. “I feel like apple pie…” “I KNOW, Let’s watch a Christmas MOVIE!!!” Haha they both seemed to come at once and they both just HAD to be done. I COME from a land of White Christmas Wonderland, Hot Cocoa, Snowmen and Cherished Family Traditions.  I LIVE in a…

Music Moves Us

“I like big butts and I cannot lie..” Wait, WHAT?? Have you ever caught yourself belting out a catchy song and then gone, WAIT, what!!?? Music is powerful. It makes us feel. It makes us move. It can instill a passion in us that may or may not be just or appropriate. While the lyrics…
