Top Two Tech Travel Toys for Kids


This summer our road trip has taken us across the mountains to Grandma’s house as they often do and so far it’s been a lovely trip.  Things just seem easier this time.  Maybe it’s because they’re older now – there’s no more lugging around playpens and diaper bags and strollers.  We’re past all the ‘gear […]

I recently came across proverbs 16:24 which reads: “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bone” and I instantly connected with the phrase.  How could I not?  I’m a wordy individual with a fondness for bees after all.  I read it a few times, letting it roll around […]

Strawberry Gin and Tonic

A cool and refreshing summertime drink - Strawberry Gin and Tonic!
