When you fail...

As a follower of Jesus Christ, as a wife, as a mom as a friend and in business...
So many times I've failed!


 Failure means learning.  Failure is inevitable.  Failure brings me a greater sense of His grace.

xox.

Fall Candy Trail Mix

Hey Friends!
How are you?  It's been a while since I posted!
Summer went by way too quickly.  Didn't it?  It's not officially over until this Saturday :)  Then, Sunday begins my FAVORITE season of all.

Last fall, my husband made up a delicious concoction we love around here.
We call it fall trail mix, but really, it's mostly sweeties.  I'm not even much of a candy corn fan, but in this combo, I love it.  Also, there is fruit in it, which voids out all of the bad candy?  Right?


Mix equal parts of (more or less of each depending on your preference):
Candy Corn
Dry Roasted Peanuts
Raisins
Mini-Marshmallows
Chocolate Chips
Caramel Bits
 
I bet it would be great with mini pretzels too.
The fun thing is, you can really add whatever you want/like. 
I didn't claim it to be wholesome, but it is a satisfying little snack.

Ok.  I promise it won't be another 4 months til I post again :)

Roly-poly, Pell-mell, Tumble-bumble

As I mentioned in Monday's post, the kids had the day off of school.  We went to "the farm", met daddy for lunch and then went to a park that we hadn't been to in a while (and wrapped the fun up with a stop for gelato, of course).  Instead of playing on the playground, the kids spent at least 45 minutes running up and down this sledding hill.  

 It was a blast to watch them.
There's something inspiring about watching children playing and running and rolling (in this case).  They are so carefree.  So full of energy and life.  I sat and tried to imprint that time in my mind.  The giggles, the breeze, the smell of the grass...

 

Oh how I love times like these with my amazing little creatures. 
 

And they delight in it too.  
Because kids feel most loved when you spend time with them-uninterrupted.
Even if it means just sitting on top of a hill watching them "roly-poly, pell-mell, tumble-bumble till they come to the green grass and stop short." 
(Poky the Little Puppy reference).


 

On Wednesday, I found this half sheet of paper on  the kitchen counter.  My daughter spent some time writing Bible verses and it really blessed me; especially the verses that she chose!  All three are amazing reminders.



Thanks for stopping by today!
