• Order Yet? {Gypsy Magpie}

    Order Yet?

    Since it’s March 8th, I decided that I better sit down and figure out how I’m doing on my “One Word” and goals for the year. So far, I’ve done pretty good! January’s goal was to organize the laundry/mudroom. We didn’t get cabinets in or some of the other projects I am dreaming of *sigh* […]

    Marriage… Love the One You’re With

    Last Sunday night I got to attend a fireside put on by my church. {Thanks Mom and Dad Mag for babysitting so I could go! I wish my husband could have been home to go with me! He would have LOVED it.} Our Stake is focusing on strengthening marriage this year so, the Stake President […]

  • Single Lady Sundays

    I don’t think there is anything I dread about trucker trips more than Single Lady Sundays, it is quite possibly my version of Hell.

  • Growing Herbs on the Windowsill {Gypsy Magpie}

    You Reap What You Sow

    When I get frustrated, the best way for me to find peace in my head is when I put myself to work. Gardening has become one of my favorite things to do because I don’t have to think. It’s one of those times when I can let go of my mind and just use my […]

  • Water, Water, and Water Some More!

    The past month has been a little stressful around here. The Holidays tend to be crazy anyway, but adding in my grandpa’s passing and funeral, sickness, and lots of stress with my sweetheart’s job, has made me feel a little overwhelmed. The dreaded “Not Enoughs” made an unexpected visit in a big way and left us all […]
