My friends, because of the amount of things that have happened in this year, and because of my lack of determination to discuss them all as they occurred throughout the year, I’ve compiled a list of all the things I’ve come to love in 2016 year. And while this is not an exhaustive list, these things, places and… Continue reading 16 Things I Came To Love In 2016
The past 2 and 1/2 months have been so full. There’s been a lot of school work but also a lot of growing, learning, discovering, creating, serving and loving going on. Here are a few snap shots… 2016 began with a celebration at our abode with the Church Family. In the month of January,… Continue reading Filled Up
It was 2 weeks ago, Christmas Day. My family was roughly 2.5 hours into our weekend-before-finals getaway. We were listening to A Veggie Tales Christmas Party for probably the 97th time in our lives.
It’s been a tradition, time out of mind, to listen to this every Christmas Season (often several times a season). This was the first listening of the 2015 season.
We sung along with Larry and Manuel on Feliz Navidad (“Which means ‘Merry Christmas’, in Spanish. It also has some other words which mean, ‘I wish you a prosperous year and happiness’. Right Manuel?”).
Here we are. I am currently 4 full days into Christmas break, and I’m just now sitting down to have a word with you. The last 2 weeks have been good. I’ve taken a certification test for school and passed, decorated gingerbread people, been on a road trip, colored several coloring pages, taken final exams and finished the… Continue reading 12-15 in 158 Words

And very few, have ever set foot in Central America. The one of the few exceptions is many years ago, I ate… Continue reading SRC: Mexican Street Food
One of my resolutions for 2015 was: Start a blog. Only post when I have something to say/show; never apologize for not posting. Between school and teaching piano lessons and wanting to sleep late in the mornings, I haven’t posted in forever and a day. And I’m trying really hard not to feel guilty about that. I… Continue reading Autumn in Photos and Songs
Celebrate It’s just been one of those weeks fortnights, you know. Bad news, scary news, heartbreaking events, discouraging results, no progress, too much to do, tough situations, discouraging conversations, worried/weepy nights, stressful/sweaty days, not enough sleep, sleeping too much, too cold, too hot, not fast enough … Not thankful enough. In the middle of a rough couple of weeks,… Continue reading Five Minute Friday: Celebrate
I’ve been back at college for 2 weeks now. But honestly, I’m not done with summer yet. Partly because I still have several Summer Recipe Challenges to tell you about. Maybe I’ll be able to tell you about all of them before we hit the official beginning of Autumn, in about 2 weeks. Today, I want to… Continue reading SRC: Mug Cake
Well, untill the week of July 24, I’d had nothing but successes with my new recipes. At least most of the family was happy to eat any and all of the new recipes I set before them. That week was different. Let me tell you about it. The Menu: Asian Pork Salad (Adapted from this book)… Continue reading SRC: The First Failure
It was late on a Friday evening. As usual my siblings and I were staying up late to “party” after our parents went to bed. But this friday night was special. It was the eve of Mama’s birthday, and we had things to do. We turned on Netflix to muffle some of the different noises,… Continue reading SRC: Happy Birthday Mama!
