My Last First Date…

One of my regular readers (who also happens to be my sweet cousin!) asked me, after reading about some of my dating nightmares, what my first date with my husband was like. This post is a much belated response to that question… Continue reading

A day in the life…

Today’s post is a little different in that it is mostly pictures. The title is also completely accurate but also perhaps a bit misleading in that my days rarely look the same from one day to another. What I did was take one picture every hour I was awake. I’ve put brief descriptions but, mostly, I’m letting the pictures speak for themselves… Continue reading

Coffee & Jesus

So I don’t consider myself a “mommy blogger” even though I write a lot about my experiences with my family which includes my two children. I’m happy to know that I’m reaching lots of people who are not parents as well as fellow parents who may understand some of the specifically toddler or baby centered posts more acutely. In that same way, I don’t consider this a faith blog or specifically Catholic blog, but I will never shy away from the fact that I am a person of faith and that my whole lens of how I view the world is through the perspective of faith. But today’s post is going to be a little more direct than usual. Continue reading

I mean, even if Phoenix is still experiencing ridiculously warm weather I will still want to start moving on to all the yummy fall flavors soon and so it was time to seize the fruits of summer!

A Little Reintroduction

Since I know I have some new readers from my affiliate work with the Cultivate What Matters shop, I thought it would be good to continue my jump back into blogging regularly with a nice little reintroduction. So first of all WELCOME! Here’s a basic rundown about who I am, where my blog name came from, and what you can expect to read about in these posts… Continue reading

Dreaming of Fall…

Some people may negatively hurl the word “basic” in my direction for my unabashed love of fall, but I’m already dreaming of cooler weather, getting outdoors more, a sensible amount of pumpkin delights, and my other favorite fall flavors like apples, cinnamon, and caramel. I’m also especially excited about planting my fall garden and while cooler weather may take a while to reach Phoenix, we’re starting to prepare our garden now! Continue reading
