Talk of the Town #89

As I shared about the family kayaking trip that I almost didn’t survive , I realize just how good it is to be alive and here for another  party.  I realize many of those who live on the east coast and were affected by Irma feel the same way.  One of our party hosts (Sarah @ Sadie Seasongoods) lives in that area, so I’m waiting to hear how  she is, so please be in prayer for her. When you are {Read More}

Lessons Learned on a Family Kayaking Trip

Lessons Learned on a Family Kayaking Trip Every year we go on a family kayaking trip.  I look forward to it every year.  Some trips are very memorable, like the time my sons climbed a short cliff and jumped into the water below and the year we stayed at a campground that had horrible karaoke music.  But this year, our family kayaking trip was memorable because I almost didn’t survive it. Literally.

Walking Down Magazine Features Memory Road

I’ve recently had several new requests for photos for magazine features.  I’ll let you know if or when they end up in print, but it made me think back to my past features. That giddy feeling never goes away every time I see my home or projects in print. If you are new here, I hope you’ll enjoy seeing those features, and if you’ve been around awhile, I hope you won’t mind taking a walk down memory lane with me.

DIY Creepy Halloween Bottles Decorations

August Monthly Recap | 12 Projects and Posts from Knick of Time

August Monthly Recap Like so many of you, I’ve watched the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.  My cousin’s 1-story home in Tomball, Texas, was spared by just inches.  She was able to get out once the flooding on the roads subsided.   A cousin of my son’s fiancée was less fortunate, and lost everything.  I know the situation will get worse for those in areas that will be flooded by the release of water from reservoirs.  I know many of {Read More}
