Happy Sunday friends!! Busy day ahead. My cousin is having his Eagle Scout ceremony. Afterwards, Karl, the kids and I will be making pierogis. They are something my MIL used to make. I’m looking forward to the whole day. #sunday #pierogi #polishrecipes #familyrecipe #makingmemories #familytradition #family #cooking #realfood #polishfood

Do large spoons full of cookie dough count as a well balanced lunch?? I sure hope so! #nephew #cookies #makingmemories #homemade #homemadecookies #cookiedough #bakinguphappiness #madefromscratch #chocolatechipcookies

This happened last night: My oldest son. Its 1:40am and I’m just getting home. Preston has an out of town class this week in Macon. He called me tonight and said he had been in an accident. I ran out the door, picked up my Mama and we went straight to him. He is ok. The other drivers are ok. He was TWO HOURS away when he called. The drive to him lasted a lifetime. When I walked up to him, it felt so good to put my arms around him and see he is ok. The we went to get his belongings from the car and that’s when I truly realized how scary the accident was. Almost his entire car has been hit/scratched/bent, etc. BUT HE IS OK. Seeing his car like this still has me in a mess of emotions, but mostly thankful he is alive. This is one of the scariest experiences of my life, I can’t truly imagine how his head is handling it all at this point. I am going to bed thankful for his life, his safety and knowing that no one was hurt. Cars can be replaced, people can’t. Praising God for His clear protection over my son last night.

This year I added a second tree. This is a special tree for my husband, Karl. In 2015, his Mama passed away. His dad gave us old ornaments and Christmas decorations that she had over the years. This tree is made up of her decorations, her angel and colored lights (because those are his favorite) and I even went old school with icicles. #christmas #merrychristmas #christmastree #christmasdecorations #lights #christmasangel

Three of my young chickens. I’m afraid that over half of the ones we kept are roosters 🤦‍♀️ definitely have to be rehomed. But look at these beautiful colors! #chickens #backyardchickens #homestead #coop #alabama

Homemade peppermint creamer. I didn’t create the recipe, but this is my version: 1 cup heavy cream 2 1/2 cups almond milk (I used unsweetened, but you don’t have to) 1 teaspoon real peppermint extract I also added a dash of nutmeg and a splash of vanilla extract. You can add maple syrup for more sweetness. So delicious!! #homemade #coffeecreamer #creamer #coffee #peppermint #peppermintextract #heavycream #almondmilk #christmas #merrychristmas #diy #recipes #sharing

The leaves are falling so fast today that this tree will be bare in a couple of days. I’m in love with the color of these leaves #fall #fallingleaves #itsfallyall #alabama #yellowleaves #babyitscoldoutside #homestead #bluesky

Trent and I made some imperfectly perfect salt dough ornaments tonight. Not picture perfect, but our first try. We will use them as decoration for the house this Christmas. Learning as we go. I got the recipe from @rockyhedgefarm #saltdough #saltdoughornaments #christmas #homemade #hearts #madewithlove #ornaments
