Announcing, Selah Lynn! Ok, so she isn't here yet (less than two and a half months away!), but we finally picked her full name. Selah (pronounced "say-lah") is a Hebrew word that can be found in Psalms. It means to take a pause for meditation or reflection. Lynn is after one of Todd's close family friends.

Nothing says warm weather like fresh lemon! I just LOVE lemon desserts because you can eat and eat and never feel heavy-full after. (I know you know what I mean.) Lemon is just so refreshing and light! I whipped up these Lemon Frosted Sugar Cookies for a potluck dinner and they were a smashing hit! They were super easy and quick to make--- so skip that bagged mix and give these a try!

Wow. Sorry for disappearing from the world of blogland! I have been super busy with life and baby stuff, that I haven't had time to squeeze in a post that I thought was "blog worthy". So, I guess this will be more of a "life update" post.

I have been (sporadically!) making miniatures, although in the past few weeks, that has been put on hold. (I'll explain why soon!) I have been almost done with one scene for over a year now... and it's still that way- almost done. Anyone hungry for some freshly baked, warm muffins with creamy butter?

This past weekend, I took the quick drive up to the Philly area to visit with two of my dear friends from college, Karen and Margaret. We spent Valentine's Day together at Longwood Gardens, viewing their annual Orchid Extravaganza. It was absolutely gorgeous! Here are some snapshots from our day together...

So this post is almost a year overdue but thought I'd share anyway. Better late than never, right? Here are some cards I made at a crafting weekend with my aunt, cousins and mom.

Hello 2015!

I am getting pretty bad at the whole keeping-up-with-the-blog thing, although I am sure you will forgive me when I give my "excuse".

White Chocolate Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you had a fulfilling holiday full of family, friends, laughter, food and blessings. :) I bring to you today an awesome holiday cookie recipe... White Chocolate Pumpkin Snickerdoodles! They are extremely soft and chewy and not overly pumpkin-y. I could make and eat these all through Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! Enjoy the recipe!
