Hallee and I are enjoying being in each others’ company in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This is a fascinating city – a blend of cultures and time like you’ve never seen before. We listen to the Islamic call to prayer that is blasted throughout the city with loud speakers while we watch skyscrapers get built. Mosques are nestled next to glass and steel. Women in full burkas vie for shopkeepers’ attentions with women in tank tops and acid washed bluejeans.

I read in a marriage book one time to be careful with whom you share your marital problems, because it’s very easy to update friends on the problems, but we tend to forget to update on the progress. If you’re like me, you can sit there and think of friends who seem to constantly trash talk their husbands, but who rarely praise them for anything good they’ve done.Pin It
We are not a sports oriented family. Kaylee loves to play softball and is very gifted in it. We love going to her games. I’m looking forward to the boys being in sports. But to watch any other kind of sports or even care about any other kind of sports simply doesn’t happen in my family.

One loaf of bread, one batch of buns, one patch of pita bread, two pizza doughs — all of those take one envelope of yeast.I make all of my bread homemade.

When I approached my friend Raechel, the talented seamstress of Maker’s Hands, about making something for this giveaway month, she got excited. She had found this amazing fabric and couldn’t wait for the excuse to make it into an apron. I LOVE this fabric. It’s unique and not overly pink.Pin It
There was a time in our marriage when there was little trust between me and Gregg. I’d say one thing and he wouldn’t believe it. He’d say another thing and I wouldn’t believe it. It was a very dark time in our lives, and even typing about it and thinking about itelicits a bit of an emotional reaction in my heart.Pin It
