People over Projects…Lysa TerKeurst

“When our to-do lists tug at our attention, we have to remember: the people in our lives need us. We need space to connect and process together. After all, conversational threads are what make up the fabric of relationships.” Lysa TerKeurst

This came from: How to Choose People Over Projects

I read this today and for the past several months I was choosing “projects over people”, a job over EVERYTHING else. And if you know me….that’s not me at all. So, I made a change, not for money, not for peace, but for relationships that matter to me….YOU…my friends, my family! Yes, Charles and I own a small business, we are busy, but when it comes to friendships, we value them, we love to entertain and stay in touch. So, let’s have conversations, let’s create a blanket of memories.
Coffee dates, beer dates, cupcake date or just a phone call date.

Happy Thursday!



Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas

This season was a family quiet one. I didn’t bake as much as usually do for the holidays, but I did bake some cute wreath frosted cupcakes. Image

Vanilla/Vanilla Frosted Wreath Cupcakes


I have never made these before and I gave it a shot! What do you think?

Being able to take time out for my family was very important to me. Our kids are young adults now and of course have their own lives and friends to be with, but making an Enchilada Dinner on Christmas night was a must for them to be here. We had cookies for dessert and little chocolate covered marshmallows for a SWEET treat.


Sugar Cookies and Peanut Butter Blossoms…..Santa’s favorite!


Chocolate Covered Marshmallows for the Hot Chocolate treat!

Twas’ the night before Christmas, I was able to finish my Christmas Wreath. Somehow, I had misplaced my hot glue gun and hadn’t had a chance to get another. But I was tired of looking at a naked wreath that I went to Target and bought the gun. I was pleased at the results, cause it’s a little country.


We all hope you had a great Christmas holiday with family, friends and loved ones.

Merry Christmas from our home to yours.
