Feeling all kinds of relief after finally turning in our mountain of visa paperwork to the Spanish government last week, which included a hot-off-the-press lease for our first tiny little apartment in Barcelona!!!  (Can’t stop staring at this charming photo from our soon-to-be balcony.)  If all goes according to plan, we will be packing up...

2017 Summer Faves

I think this quarterly update officially wins the award for Most Life That Has Happened Around Here In Three Short Months. Truly.  From the absolute highest of highs, to some unexpected losses and lows…from big moves here at home, to prepping for our upcoming big move abroad…from memorable moments spent with our loved...

I’ve Been Dying To Tell You Something For Awhile Now…

WE’RE MOVING TO SPAIN!!! Specifically…Barcelona! In just 3 months! And I’m thrilled to finally tell you all about it today!  😄😄😄  Seriously, I’m the worst at keeping secrets, so it has been killin’ me to keep this on the DL these past few months while while we have been wrapping up some logistics....

2017 Spring Favorites

Happy Friday, everyone!  ? Thought I’d take a break from recipes today and chime in with an update on life behind the scenes around here this spring. First off, can I just take a second to shout from the rooftops how THRILLED I am that we’ve finally sprung forward?!?...

Us.

Our engagement pics are in! And they’re making me all –> ? ? ? ? ?. Truly, Barclay and I love them so much.  And, I’ve gotta admit that I especially love them because — as opposed to 95% of our photos up until this point — they’re not selfies!  ...

2017 Winter Favorites

Hey, friends!  ♡ Hope that this finds you well and warm on this wintery January day.  I had family in town this weekend and am a little behind with the new recipes this month, so I thought I’d pop in today and share a few of my seasonal faves, plus...

Loving this Instagram account so much.  Just ordered a letter board for myself this month too! Wanting to know all of your best recommendations for what to cook with my new Instant-Pot (<- on sale again this week on Amazon!).  I’m already feeling like this thing is going to be a life-changer....

Spreading the word about this Kickstarter that launched last week!  It’s for our church band’s latest album — Mike Crawford and the Secret Siblings.  (Shhh, I’m a secret sibling, and sing on a few tracks.?)   My friend, Mike, and the 50+ musicians in our church have been working on this...

2016 Fall Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I hope this finds you well, and someplace nice and cozy and warm as we head into this October weekend ahead.  I’ve been feeling a little under the weather this week, and haven’t felt much like cooking.  So for something different today, I thought I would...

Loving these new little booties I got this fall so much.  And speaking of booties, ’tis the season again for my favorite foot duvets!!  If you happen to be in the market, trust me, these are the comfiest slippers ever.  I pretty much live in mine all winter long. Having so much...

Wishing that I was still back sipping espresso in France, you know, like we were doing in this adorable little cafe near Monet’s water lily garden two weeks ago today.  :)  Oh my word, the trip was absolutely amazing.  And as soon as I sort through the zillions of photos that we snapped...

Counting down the days until Barclay and I leave for PARIS on Friday!!!  Oh my goodness, our trip itinerary feels like an absolute dream come true.  We’re going to chill in Paris for a few days, then take an 8-day Viking River Cruise from Paris to Normandy, then spend a few easy days in Bordeaux,...
