A Bit of Christmas

christmas-1-ec

I am beginning to realize just how far I have strayed away from sharing about my own personal life and experiences on this blog. I share about my furniture makeovers and such, but not much else. I am not sure why...may not having enough time has factored into it, too. I am now working to refinish furniture as well as a part-time job for the local school district in addition to parenting two … [Read more...]

First Trip Of The Season to The Local Ice Cream Shop

        In the quaint town of Honesdale where I live there is not much going.  We moved here in October 2003 from the York/Lancaster area as God called us here for ministry reasons.  My husband is a pastor at the Free Methodist church.  It was not an easy move for me although I LOVE it now and the people are great!   It is home.  The one saving grace at the time was that Honesdale had the famous … [Read more...]
