Jussi (YU-si) (God is merciful) Emmanuel (God with us) Mintz was delivered today, at 9:29 AM, November 4th at 19 weeks gestation. He is now safe and well in the arms of Jesus. The whole family grieves the loss of this precious little one, but also find strength and provision in Christ. We would appreciate(…)
I think it might be time for a rainbow baby!!!
I haven’t really ever done a post like this, but this seems to be a new season in my life, in our family and for the blog too! This post is definitely a bit more philosophical than most, and I think we often don’t take time to slow down, think and contemplate or meditate. So(…)
We eat eggs almost every morning for breakfast. Occasionally my kids will ask for something different which ends up being steel cut oatmeal bake, grits or gluten free french toast. We all do like eggs, but having something different once in a while is nice.
“What is that?” You may ask? Here is the definition from Urban Dicationary:
Last year I was VERY faithful about sending out a weekly email to all the CSA subscribers about what was in their box and how to use it or different recipes using their weekly ingredients. Here we are 6 weeks in and this is the first post/email about what our boxes contain!
I don’t often blog this kind of stuff, but I also don’t have this much chaos in my house in one given day. There are always mishaps and frustrations and thoughtless things kids do, but these last two days are about all I can handle. I can say I’m SO glad they are all in(…)
This review is A LONG time coming! There has been a lot going on in the lives of our family and the blog took a back seat. And in the late fall I was given this book to review. I’ve actually used it A LOT, but never had the presence of mind or the ability(…)
Over two days I was GIVEN 62 lbs of cherries. 50 lbs were seconds and were small Tartarian cherries and the second batch was 12 lbs of large champagne cherries. Both tasted fantastic and were a huge treat! But to process all of these! There were certainly some late nights involved. But Brian stayed up with(…)
I can easily grow accustom to this ole land and take for granted the freedom I have and it’s great cost. There is really something special about seeing our grand ole flag and hearing the Star Spangled Banner. Pride and love swells in my heart for this land and it’s people. I’m forever grateful for(…)

Lard!!! LARD!!! You may say… that’s what most people say when they hear we cook with lard. “Don’t you know that stuff ‘ll kill ya’!” “That’s what my mama cooked with back in the day.” “Your a nurse and you use saturated fats?”
Well, I think it may be about time to return… but slowly it will be, I’m sure. Life feels somewhat back to normal, although what is normal now? Normal will now be different for the rest of my life. Normal will still include the loss of my baby boy and a day doesn’t go by(…)
I originally intended to post this on Easter Sunday and then completely forgot. It was written and ready to post… I didn’t want to scrap it and thought it was still good to share; even though it is quite a bit after Easter. It’s so easy to get caught up in the here and now;(…)
