Awards:  Thanks to all those who nominated me for awards in the past; many I accepted and some I wasn’t able to (–life outside the cooking jar came calling…).  For 2017 and forward, I will not be able to accept any.  But as usual, happy to support and connect the dots for those wanting or needing it!

  1. Hey there, CJ! I just wanted to drop a quick line to say thank you for looking through my blog and for all the “likes”. I am grateful for your interest. I am a wee bit slow on the uptake, but I will be reading more of yours as well.

    I hope your Easter was peaceful and blessed!

    Love & blessings.

    1. Hi Lizzy! Thanks for checking on me! I’m doing well thanks and how are you? I’m in full-blown mommy mode! My son, who just graduated from high school, will be leaving soon for the Air Force so… I’m trying to hold on to every ounce of family time that I can! I miss reading your posts and comments and plan to return on a daily/weekly basis within the next couple of months so thanks for all the support and prayers! Blessings to you as well!

      1. Wow! Sounds like you have some memories in the making. When your children embark on their own life plans it is exciting to see them unfold. No matter how “frazzled” we may be about it. Embrace the moment!

        I am doing well. I am concerned about my Dad as he is getting older and his health is declining. I would covet your prayers.

        I look forward to your return to writing. I miss reading your stuff. You take all the time you need. Enjoy your family time!

        Blessings to you!
