Lasting Memories

February 18, 2019

February is a month in which I find myself reflecting on my grandpa, Dick.  My grandpa was a man of many achievements and accomplishments.   He was a man who I was always close to growing up, but our relationship grew deeper during my college years.   I was able to spend more time with him and at an older age, had a much deeper appreciation for him, the life lessons he taught me and the stories he shared with me. My…

Homemade Almond Milk in the Quick Cooker

February 4, 2019

It’s been a long, cold winter!  Ok, well, not really.  We’ve been quite blessed in the Midwest with the mild winter we’ve been having!  But, I will say this, the past couple of weeks with the cold, below- zero weather, I’ve been enjoying probably a bit too much coffee. 🙂  And, with homemade almond milk.  I used to buy almond milk but after discovering how many of the brands had extra additives, I began researching how to make my own.…

Or so I thought. Until a…

It’s the Little Things

January 25, 2019

This past weekend, after a long day of racing around to do errands, I returned home only to run into one of my elderly neighbors.  She approached me and asked me about her recent vacuum purchase (don’t worry, I’ll explain).  You see, a year and a half prior, she had ran into me on Black Friday and saw the new vacuum that I had purchased (that I was probably way too ecstatic about!) and had many questions for me regarding…
