I am not sure how many times I am going to say I am all about my crock pot, but one more time couldn't hurt. It is a full blown obsession. This meal is easy, delicious, and makes me happy. I genuinely hope you try it! Also, I am not in denial, my food pictures aren't beautiful, and I will continue to use the one's from the website's where I find recipes.

Lately I have been feeling at peace. At peace with my family. At peace with my friendships. At peace in my marriage. At peace in my heart with the Lord. I have had a couple of hard conversations lately, but now that they are behind me, I feel weight off my shoulders. I have sat down and read the Bible more lately than I have in the past year, and God's word is refreshing me. I have set aside time to reach out to family that is not near me, and I am finding it rewards me as much as it shows love to them. I am learning to love Bill in the simple moments that we share and to enjoy doing chores with him because I get to be near the man I love. I pray that you find peace in your souls friends. I pray that you seek out peace if you do not have it and find a way to draw nearer to your creator, as he is the only way to find true peace.
These lovely friends are here this weekend from Portland, Oregon! They recently had a sweet baby named Aiden, and gave Bill and I the pleasure of being his God Parents! What an honor that is, and I cannot wait to hug him and hold him and be around them and share meals together. These two are people we really treasure. This weekend is sure to be a glorious adventure, and I will share some photos in the future :) Enjoy your weekend friends!
As promised, here is a picture of the "headboard" hung over our bed - it ended up being more like a piece of art, but I am absolutely in love with it! Yes, it was a gift for Bill, but as I said last week, it is also a gift for me! Definitely a win-win for the Rogers :) Sigh… it fills my heart with joy.
I have wanted a sewing machine for as long as I can remember. I have been jealous of people who know how to sew and always wanted to have the skill for myself. I want to make table runners and napkins and quilts and hem pants and take things in and make curtains and be a woman who knows how to sew almost anything. It is all a part of my mission to become a well rounded woman :) I want to have all the traditional skills: Cooking, Cleaning, Sewing and Baking. Well, now it's time to embrace this desire, because my wonderful husband bought me this gift for Christmas. When he pulled it out from behind the tree I had no idea what was inside the box, and when I peeled off the paper my eyes welled up with tears. What an incredible opportunity I have to hone a skill I have always wanted to master! Despite all this, I'm intimidated. Learning to sew requires patience and a whole lot of practice. This weekend we went out and bought the basics (thread, fabric, etc…) an
