Happy RSV!

Happy RSV!

“We’re baby-free!” I cried out as my hubby and I headed to the beach to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first child-less weekend. The second day into it, I get the dreaded call. Our 13 month old girls have RSV (respiratory syncytial virus). Happy anniversary dear. Have you ever experienced 42 pounds of babies … Continue reading

30 Day Vegetarian Challenge Week 2

30 Day Vegetarian Challenge Week 2

Does it suck, or do I suck?  That’s the conundrum I face when attempting to cook vegetarian recipes. I’m a carnivore, turned vegan for the month, and I’ve been sampling new recipes.

To Ve’ or Not to Ve’

I am a meat eater. There’s nothing better in this world than a medium-rare rib eye. My mouth waters just thinking about slicing into that tender, juicy, pink meat. Delightful. Yet I’m thinking of becoming a vegetarian for the month of January. I asked my hubbie, “What do you think?” “I think that’s my worst … Continue reading

Weep With Those Who Weep

Weep With Those Who Weep

“Weep with those who weep.”  – Romans 12:15b We weep with you Sandy Hook Elementary. The nation grieves for the families of Newton, Connecticut. Our best response is to weep with you, and to share your broken hearts. Unworthy. I had no idea how to approach a worthy response to such great tragedy. It took … Continue reading

Love My Neighbor

Love My Neighbor

“Waaaahhhhhh!” I hear my daughter screaming at the top her lungs. I swoop in for the rescue. She’s just learned to walk, and her unsteady legs caused her trip and scrape her face on the brick wall of our porch. These mild sunny December days have lured the girls and me to spend many an … Continue reading
