Four of My Favorite Things…

favorite things

1.  I love my Keurig.  LOVE.  Can’t live without.  When the new Keurig 2.0 machines were released I was given one by the lovely people at Keurig.  I haven’t had a reason to use the 5 cup carafe yet.  But… I’m thinking the next couple snow days could give me reason to use it.  And […]

Grace in Small Things – 223


5 little things that make me happy 1. Fresh paint on walls. 2. The smell of a new carpet. 3. A reliable “handyman” company with employees that are just honestly nice guys. 4. Ana’s odd love of time.  Knowing what time it is, announcing what time it is, telling how may minutes are left until […]
