I just wanted to share a few random facts about myself so that you could get to know the woman behind this blog a little bit better.
Summer has been so busy, and lately I have felt a little behind and unorganized. Recently one of my goals has been to start a new morning routine. Starting the day off right and not in a rush makes all the difference for me. My goal is to have a simple morning routine that I enjoy and look forward to. I love getting up before everyone else and enjoying a little peace and quiet to start the day.
This recipe for marinated cucumbers is a southern favorite of mine. I remember my mama making these for us every summer. They are so easy, delicious, and fresh!
For Mother’s Day, my husband built me a vegetable garden. I had mentioned to him a while back that I wanted a vegetable garden. I thought it was so sweet that he remembered that conversation and did this for me. I am so excited about this new project. Gardening is a stress relief for me, and of course I look forward to teaching my daughter, Ellie, all about it.
I love to read, and I’ve always thought that I just didn’t have enough time for it. I recently cut back the TV watching to only one or two nights a week. After making that small change, I have found that I have a lot more time for other things, including reading. I also downloaded the Audible app (Audible Membership), and listen to books while I’m cleaning around the house or on my commute to work. So, I wanted to share some of my favorites that I have been reading lately.
