A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Friday ??s

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?

There are a few! We do support Autism Speaks, but because it is a larger charity I would probably choose one of the other great autism organizations out there, such as: Autism Society of America, TACA (Talk About Curing Autism), AC…

Wednesday Love!

It's time one again for What I'm Loving Wednesday with Jamie! If you haven't linked up before, no better time to start than this love filled season! Anyway, this is what I'm loving this week:

I'm loving getting to talk to my husband! (via email and skype). He is back to an area w…

All this talk about LOVE!

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, love is all around us! Hearts and flowers and chocolates. Everywhere you go, it's unavoidable. Normally I love V-day, but when you're not with the one you love, it can be a little depressing. Today, while on a shopping outing with the little one…

The Search for the Perfect Potato Soup (3 Recipes)

Okay, I'm not REALLY searching for the perfect soup, but I do LOVE potato soup and have recently been trying out some different variations. In the past, I normally just bought Campbell's and used that as a base, and added cheese and lots of smoked paprika. Delicious. But there is nothing li…

A Sensory Friendly Experience

Yesterday, our local theater introduced their first 'Sensory Friendly Film' with a special showing of Tangled! For those who don't know what this means, it is simply a special showing where lights are left brighter, sound is turned down, it is accepted that kids may have troubles stayin…

Phillippians 4:13

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.", Philippians 4:13

I have always loved this verse and considered it one of my top 3 bible passages (up there with Jeremiah 20:9 and 1 Corinthians 13:4), but in the last year or so, I have been turning to it more and more.

I have never …

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Time to link up with Jamie once again for WILW! I love this weekly sharing of what everyone is loving! It's such a great way to stop and think about the positive things going on in life instead of dwelling on the negative! So anyway, this is what I'm loving this week:

I am loving:

Taxes! Oka…

Small Gestures=Big Differences

When Shaun was diagnosed with autism, I knew from the beginning that I wanted to do everything in my power to raise awareness and tolerance for my son and others like him. I have said several times that pre diagnosis I thought I knew quite a bit about autism- my brother had been suspected autistic …

Over The Border Shrimp Enchiladas

It's been awhile since I've shared any recipes! I have several I never posted about from a few months back, but mostly I've been in a bit of a slump and making a lot of old favorites...which is actually pretty rare for me, I like to make new things!! But anyway, a few months ago I found…

All Aboard!

So, as most of you reading this know, we recently went on a cross country train trip to visit family for the holidays. If you have never traveled by train, I recommend you try it at least once. It was an amazing experience! Although I will say alone with an autistic child, it was not easy! But I…

What I'm Loving Wednesday!!!!

Coming in a little late today (after being super busy cleaning and reorganizing/decorating all day!), but it's Wednesday yet again so I thought I'd go ahead and link up with Jamie for What I'm loving Wednesday!

All my new (and old) Willow Tree figurines! I received two for Ch…

1. We're home!
Eh, well, to our house at least. I still consider Illinois/Indiana home! I will blog about the train trip once I recover enough and get all the pictures on my computer. I will say all things considered, it was a good trip- Shaun and I were both sick though which d…

January 3rd, 2007
