Hello everyone! We are finally home from our wonderful two week vacation to see my sister and family in North Carolina. I got to meet some sweet friends of my sister’s, Angie and Wendy. I got to go to Mt. Airy, North Carolina – Andy Griffith’s hometown. We got to see some friends of ours, Ben and Candace Graham in South Carolina. We also stopped by to visit some friends, the Collins family, in Knoxville, Tennessee. They gave us a tour of the church and college as Bro. Collins is on the faculty of Crown College. We first met them in Kansas. They are such sweet people. We also got to attend some of the Sword of the Lord conference, and wow, that was amazing. The preaching was so strong and convicting. Bro. Bobby Roberson is such a humble man, and Clarence Sexton is eloquent and very kind as well. But I better stop myself, or I’ll give away the details of future posts!
We spent hours visiting with my sister and brother-in-law, who so graciously allowed us to stay with them – making the entire visit possible. It was all so wonderful. I hope to be posting photos and more details soon.
In the meantime, I need some help. Can you all email or comment here and tell me what your favorite online recipe sources are? Or, hey, you could just send me your favorite easy recipes! Oh, and I need recipes that are quick fixin’ and good. No problem, right? :] Well, if you have any favorites, pleeeeeease let me know. I need a change. An easy change. Also, Wendy, where did you get the five ingredient recipe book that you gave Melanie? It looked great!
Thanks for your help everyone! I’m off to buy groceries. No wonder food is on my mind!

Till next time~

    Hey Valerie,
    I have been waiting and waiting for you to post. I know you are busy, unpacking, laundry, groceries, etc. I'm not sure where I got the 5 ingredient cookbook, but I'll be on the lookout for one. It was soooo good to be able to meet you from cyberspace to real and in person. I hate our visit got cut short,but oh well. Glad y'all are home safe and sound.
    Remember…everyday, please!!!!!

    Love & Prayers,
    Wendy in Andy Land

    Ben and Candace Graham? That's cool. I haven't seen them for a while. Ben is my husband's cousin. How is Candace doing with her pregnancy? I know she has been looking forward to having another little one for awhile now. We want to get up to their church sometime and see it. Isn't it fun seeing old friends?

    Glad you made it home safely! We did too – Praise the Lord! I'm so sorry we missed each other, but hopefully I will have another opportunity. I am looking forward to hearing more about your trip!
