Our county fair is next week. And the girls get an excused absence from school for the entire week to participate in fair.

The spiritual side…

Hard for me to recap Quilt Market without touching on what it all really meant to me, spiritually.  For those of you rolling your eyes and muttering, “oh, here she goes with the Jesus thing”…yes, the Jesus thing. If I’m to be honest about what matters most to me then sharing that is just as […]
