• Infused Water Recipe Round-up {Gypsy Magpie}

    Strawberry Lemon Water

    My extended family has had a decades long debate over what a carbonated drink should be called. The California side says “soda” and the mountain fam says “pop” then add in my Texan sister who calls all of it “Coke” and you’ve got a real lively conversation. Soda… Pop… Coke… Beverage…Whatever you call it, I […]

  • Roll on Along {Gypsy Magpie}

    Roll on Along

    When I was growing up, one of my family’s favorite bands was ALABAMA. Anytime we headed off on an adventure you could pretty much bet your shirt that dad would play a little Mountain Music. A couple of my brothers may deny it now, but we used to belt those songs at the top of […]

  • Nothings {Gypsy Magpie}


    I am sore and feeling a little wierded out that three total strangers all handled my breast this morning. Yet, at the same time I honestly couldn’t be more thankful that they did.
