Supportive Partners

By now you know I am a HUGE fan of Pinterest, partly because I am exposed to things I may not see first hand. That network of possibilities is exciting to me. Its an incredible resource for food, drinks, decor, hacks and sometimes, a surprisingly meaningful link that changes you. I came across one such link that was a must to pin and it launched a board I like to call ♡happy wife♡. I pinned True Agape. Though the theme within the site is faith based, know that the topics shared transcend religious affiliation. Love is love.

The couple that created this site, Ryan & Cassie, have created a resource for couples that is filled with ways to stay connected, grow together and be active. With a blog, a diy section, links and personal stories, I can spend all day on their site and there would still be more to discover.

One entry in particular is about apps that could strengthen marriage. They mention being apprehensive about allowing smart technology in their relationship. Personally, technology is a huge part of my household so although I understood where they were coming from, it just appealed to me even more. The apps, Cozi, Avocado & Dare2Share, each have their own draw and all are meant to drive a meaningful forward. The time it required to test out and review these apps was considerable, which translates into the care taken by Ryan & Cassie in their pursuit to share quality posts with their viewership. For that I am grateful.

Again, I cannot express enough that True Agape is a resource for all. If you are seeking to maintain a meaningful and connected relationship with your partner, I suggest you take some time and visit their site.

Thanksgiving Faves

One of my favorite holidays, if not thee favorite, is Thanksgiving. Some of my fondest memories are of food prep with my dad the night before, and getting the meal started with my mom the morning of Thanksgiving. We would prep the stuffing at night to allow all the flavors to get comfy & yummy in the baking dish! I used to get my hands in there and at a young age, I was elbow deep. Slathering on the butter and seasoning on the turkey knowing it would be juicy in just a few hours was divine! I had no problem letting mom clean out the cavity though…not my favorite part. Raised by my grandparents (who I refer to as mom & dad) you would think I may have limited memories of my mother around the holidays but the opposite is true. I remember thinking she was a master of the glazed ham. She would make this mustard and brown sugar glaze and I was convinced making it in a ceramic dish made it taste better. It was the perfect blend of sweet, salty & delicious! Its no wonder why I enjoy it so much. What other holiday, or frankly any day of the week, do we focus so much family time on meal prep? We are always so busy, focused on the temporary moments when the forever moments are right there waiting for some love & attention. At 40 I am thankful for the memories I had with my parents now that they are all gone, and for the table I get to set this year to make even more.

Comfort food, warm & fuzzy clothing, cold weather & family. I love Thanksgiving!
