All of these things are rocking my world right now, and I can’t wait to tell you about them! Did you know Steven Curtis Chapman has a BLUEGRASS album?!?  And it’s GOOD!  I’ve played it on repeat this week.  Some of the tracks are his earlier works that he’s spun in a bluegrass direction.  Some are old hymns.  Check out the new ending to “Cinderella!”  (Makes my heart so happy!)  My faves:  “My Redeemer Is Faithful and True” and “How…

Mystery Trip

Mystery Trip

Over the years my parents have enjoyed group travel with a local company.  They’ve traveled to some amazing places!  Sometimes the company offers mystery trips.  Passengers sign up for these trips not knowing where they’re going or what they’ll be doing when they get there.  My intrepid parents have enjoyed a few of those trips! A few weeks ago my husband and I asked Mama and Daddy if they’d like take a mystery trip with US!  They were quick to…

Cozy Minimalist Home: More Style, Less Stuff

  Can I confidently decorate my home and enjoy the process? Now I can! Yes! This book reads like a visit with a good friend.

I’ve found myself smiling, chuckling out loud, and nodding my head in agreement. In this book…

Nashville: The Food! (Brunch)

I wasn’t sure what to expect in Nashville, but I was struck by three things: the music, the history, and the food. Today I’ll share some of our favorite food experiences, and then I’ll share some about the music and history over the next few days. We focused on…
