Quotes Can Move a Heart

There is no sight on earth more appealing than the sight of a woman making dinner for someone she loves.
– Thomas Wolfe

Found this quote in Miss Kay’s Duck Commander Kitchen cookbook. I just fell in love with it instantly. My prayer is for a man to walk into my life who will say those exact words when I cook for him. :)

The happiest moments are the simplest. Cooking for someone you love does just that.

I Knew You Were Trouble….

How many times in our lives do we ignore the still, small, quiet, and whispering voice? More times than any of us care to admit. Am I right? I know personally I rarely take full notice of the voice until …. after the fact.

For me the whispers come when choosing relationships. Instead of following my gut, listening to the whispers from Him, whom loves me very much. Oh, and acknowledging the red flags under my nose, I choose very boldly to push those all aside. I usually believe that “I” know best. Why must we be like that? Why do I have to act in that way?

Something beautiful, beautifully crafted by Him who yes loves me … some thing called … Free will.

I have a love/hate relationship with the out come of my bold/ stupid decision to ignored the silent voice. It never fails. when I’m laying in that heap of sadness, because my way didn’t work. We all know that feeling if we are honest. And in that despair, I will proclaim, “Next time I will NOT ignore the still small voice!” This determination and commitment sadly disappears as quickly as it came to be.

Isn’t free will wonderful?

A couple days ago while driving home from work, I found myself flipping through the radio stations. This very rarely happens more like never happens.


Yes, everything happens for a reason. You see the few days prior I was struggling with past “garbage”. Rewind a year and half ago, there were many whispers I should have paid attention too. Our Loving Daddy is such a loving Daddy that He never stops the nudges, He just tries a different approach, so His precious children see the light.

That day in the car I came to the realization and made the choice to let go. Forget and let go of that “garbage”. To accept it as what it was and to learn from it, and move forward.

The song you ask that came over the radio?  I Knew You Were Trouble – Taylor Swift

It was so strange  such a blessing, because the song spoke directly to my heart. The moment was perfect, not to early and not to late. Perfectly planned.

From the song:

No apologies. He’ll never see you cry,
Pretends he doesn’t know that he’s the reason why.
You’re drowning, you’re drowning, you’re drowning.
Now I heard you moved on from whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see

He was long gone when he met me
And I realize the joke is on me, yeah

Well the joke is no longer on me. I will embrace my today, my now. I am happier today.







Remember, life is the happiest when we enjoy the simpleness. Sometimes that means being 27 and single. Having your heart stepped on more times that you care to express.  And realizing you are the one holding onto the past. It is time to let go.

The beautiful can come from it, that embracing life’s blessings are possible.

Who doesn’t love shoes!?

This summer I have three weddings and Easter is a week away. I have been in a desperate mode to find clothes and shoes that will look good on me and will not draw attention to my non-tan body.  Who gets married in May in Nebraska anyways!?

And then… I fell in love with these shoes….


Yes… I bought all three pair … and yes I needed all three pair… Well maybe to the last statement. I probably didn’t “need” them, but that’s beside the point.

Three pair of dress shoes for around $37.00, I couldn’t go wrong.

How did I do this you ask? …. Payless, on sale, free shipping, and an online coupon.

I love bargains!!

Now the search begins for a tall male date to drag along to the weddings.

Ready set… SEARCH!

Money doesn’t buy happiness, saving money does. ;)


Day 8 - Sunrises.

This morning I got a text from my mom, “Look at the sunrise”. So I immediately jumped out of bed and ran to the window to look. The photo gives not justice, but isn’t it beautiful?
Remember its the simple things that make us happy, that bring us the most joy, if we but take the time to enjoy them.

Day 7 - Fabric Delivery!

Want excitement? Send fabric in the mail! I am not sure why it is so exciting, but there is just something about new, freshly cut fabric wrapped in that plastic wrap. It screams….. CRAFT ME!!! Make me into something wonderful! :) These pretty prints are destined to be aprons.
