Reading and kitty snuggles

I could be working on laundry or putting away luggage from the SD trip but instead I’m laying on bed, snuggling 4 of my 5 cats and reading the Dec 2020 Sojourners magazine.

One Year Anniversary

I’m grateful for today because it marks the day I married the most amazing person in the world. Joshua King is the best partner a girl could ask for. He’s kind and loving. He’s tough and strong. He’s smart and creative. He’s a dreamer. He’s funny and vulnerable. He’s the balance to my crazy and … Continue reading One Year Anniversary

Covid Christmas

Day 1 (Thursday- Christmas Eve): Josh and I drove to see my parents for Christmas, knowing that we would need to make extra precautions with COVID to stay safe.

I found this image depicting the family tree of Christian denominations with some time references. (Unfortunately, … Continue reading Visual Learner Rant

Headboard day 2

We put another afternoon into our headboard. We’ve continued to adapt our plans as we’ve seen progress. We adjusted some of the cuts as the tight fit moved things around a little. We realized we needed some supplies so we made a quick trip to Lowe’s for some Boiled Linseed Oil, sponges, and french cleats. … Continue reading Headboard day 2

Headboard remake

A friend (Abby Johnson) gave me a twin bed frame and headboard. I decided to breathe new life into it. I sanded…. A lot… Time to torch Originally, we were going to add a stain on top of the burning. But we’re so happy with the burning that we decided to coat with acrylic and … Continue reading Headboard remake

Hard candy experiment

My friend Caele and I got together last night and attempted to make some candies. This was our first attempt ever at making hard candies. I think we did pretty good.
