Squeeze the Day!

I know pumpkin spice is taking over as the leaves are beginning to turn & fall but before cooler weather settles in all the way, I need to share this lemonade bar with you! Besides, if you're in the south, it's still technically lemonade weather.... Our story begins at the end of the last summer [...]

A Seder Spread

A Seder Spread

Pillowy green grass, pollen stained shoes, cool breezes, & cloudy blue skies - that’s what comes to mind when I think of Easter.

Confetti Day turned 6 this year! And it was my first in Tennessee! I love reflecting as it traces the faithfulness of the Lord. Reminisce with me for a quick sec? Last year on Confetti Day I had a Zoom interview with my current employer that moved me to where I've wanted to live since, [...]

I miss the days of paper invites to parties, don't you? Growing up, the birthday party invitations were half the fun of throwing the party! Whether purchased or DIY'd, mom & I had so much fun sending out mail to match the theme of my parties perfectly. For my first sleepover, mom went so far [...]

Party Like it’s 1776!

Some people think that Valentine's Day is the most romantic day of the year, but I usually have more luck on the Fourth of July. I worked at camps during my summer seasons of high school and college and inevitably there was a summer romance. I'd like to say that we broke out in song [...]
