When Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery announced a new yearlong cross stitch club that would debut the month I turned 30, I couldn’t resist embarking on a year of pie! I looked forward to a quick stitch every month, with a recipe to go along with each adorable pie. The first pie was released in May 2017… Continue reading A Year of Pie: Sweet as Pie Cross Stitch

Tis the season for graduations! Yesterday we returned from a quick weekend trip to Mississippi to celebrate two more graduates. We didn’t actually make it to either of the ceremonies (blame the toddler) but we managed to fit in lots of food, family, friends, not one but two baby-free outings (lunch AND a movie!), and… Continue reading Mississippi Moments
