Adorable Animal Groups

A cloud of bats, a band of coyotes, a party of jays, who knew? A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings by Matt Sewell was an informative and gorgeously illustrated book about animal groups. This book is full of Jeapardy-type facts about animal groups but the descriptions are kept to a page and its…

The Versatile Sweet Potato

After flipping through Sweet Potatoes: Roasted, Loaded, Fried, and Made into Pie I realize just how adaptable this root vegetable is. I love how organized the book is, dividing recipes up into categories. And the photographs are beautiful. Not every recipe has a photo but the ones that are there made my mouth water. I…

Love my “Start Where You Are” Notecards

Some of the most beautiful note cards I have seen in a while. To add to the gorgeous designs on the front of these cards, there are also recognizable sayings and names to go with the quotes. Not to mention, the box they came in was just as nice. Can’t wait to share these beautiful…

Unforgettable

It hasn’t been quite one month since my wedding day, and I already love thinking back on the day and looking at the photos from the day. The day is unforgettable, but the tiny details that made it so could be easily forgotten. So I don’t forget the little details, I’m making a list of…

New Growth

When I spend time with friends, I am usually reminded of how quickly our lives are changing. I can usually identify the change happening in my life but it is always highlighted when I am around friends and I see how natural life changes have affected them. In my own life, my changes include figuring…

Delicious!

Vibrant India, by Chitra Agrawal, is a beautifully designed cookbook that informs the reader about home cooked vegetarian foods from Southern India. I appreciate how the author explains and describes the various spices common in her recipes; it helps the novice cook understand the spices before attempting any of the dishes. Most of the recipes do…

Yes it is!

I love how the title of this book, “Is the Bible Good for Women”, really draws the reader in. I had a friend see this book on my kitchen table and wonder what it was about. I plan to lend it to her next. I think I also chose this book because the title was…

Spring Fling

I am so happy it’s spring! I am a little confused as to why we never got a good snow in Kentucky because it makes it seem like winter never really came, (…global warming…). But I am still happy the green grass is here, flowers are popping up through the brilliant-green grass and beautiful, warm…

I am not a Selfie Pro.

Don’t be a hero, if you take your own engagement photos be prepared for a little stress.

Lovely & Informative Postcards

Maybe it’s because I’m an animal person, but I LOVE these postcards. Each animal featured has a cute drawing and a few informative tidbits. You could easily add some color to the postcard with a marker or colored pencil before sending it out which would make your recipient all the happier! The postcards are divided…

Eating Beautifully In My Future

Eat Beautiful by Wendy Rowe is, for lack of a better word, a beautiful book. It is educational, practical and perfectly organized. From the foreword by Sienna Miller to each recipe, broken down by season, the books organization makes it easy for a person to pick it up and gain useful information in a short…

Change

Change can be good, it can be scary, and it can happen so fast. I am in the midst of a storm of change right now. I look toward the near future and, God-willing, I see myself living with my beau in his cozy little farm-house. I am also thinking about change in a year…
