I love being with people and I love getting to know others. I enjoy being part of a group that seeks to serve its community and always finding ways to be a blessing. I’m apart of a church that inspires me to serve others all around me and I also have the pleasure of hosting… Continue reading Serving, giving, being a blessing
Madeleine tea cakes are one of my favorite things to make to go with coffee or tea. I have started to see them pop up in Starbucks as well, and thought I needed to start making them again for something fun! It looks like a cookie that is shell shaped, but really the batter is… Continue reading Madeleines
I love looking at photos and I love taking photos (if they aren’t of me, of course) It’s a relaxing hobby of mine to dabble in photography and to craft scrape books. Since the time I was a young girl, I have always loved pictures. My mom had a library of photos of us… Continue reading Precious moments
These bar cookies are so yummy and easy to make! I used to make them back in my bakery days. There was this one bakery I worked at, I made a full sheet worth a day (about 60 pieces). They are just popular with kids and adults alike. You are able to change it up… Continue reading Magic Cookie Bars

This past month my “little” brother got married…FINALLY. Yes, I can shout it, FINALLY! It’s not so much as I feel relieved because he’s staring 30 in the eyes, as so much as he has had a long journey to make it to the altar of matrimony.

Spring is my favorite season, there are so many things I love about it. It screams new life and all things new all around us.

In the spirit of Spring this month, I am posting different Spring inspired ideas. This post is not meant to inspire you to buy a duck, in no way.
