Bathroom Bar Cart

I found this bar cart months ago and for some reason, my bathroom, not the kitchen or dining room, immediately came to my mind. Soon, I will do a full bathroom update but here is what our bathroom looked like BEFORE: Yeah, pretty bad. You see, our house sat empty for three years and there was a […]


The Thing About Facebook

…is that it’s not all bad. It’s really not. I have learned about numerous life changing events because of Facebook. I have learned of prayer requests, spoken and unspoken. I have learned of births, deaths, sicknesses, praise reports, and even devotionals. Heck, I even learned about the earthquake here in SC because of Facebook. But I’ve […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 30, 2013 That 31 Days Challenge is what I’m blaming for my lack of blogging just because I have to place blame somewhere. I ran out of things to say or stopped having thoughts that I wanted to put into writing (I can’t decide…it’s not that I think I have anything important to say, […]
