Everyone loves summer camp! But no one likes to be homesick.
This weekend, Denise shared with us how her son Price had gone away to camp and was having fun, but was missing his family and wanting to come home. The girls talked about how they understand longing for the people we love, but they also discussed how sometimes kids need to learn to handle things on their own.
Take a listen, then share with us your thoughts on the matter!
My bff just visited me this past week. I love our time together... Jane Austin's movies, great food and explosions of laughter. Cindy and I have been buds for 23 years now - walked through so many seasons of life together. Our well is extremely deep... We have great philosophical conversations as well as Godly counsel to pass along to the other (because both our mentor's speak wisdom into our lives to pass along).
We had so many highlights during our time together but one of the best highlights was our trip to Marcy Jo's Mealhouse in Pottsville, Tn. Here is the link: http://www.joeyandrory.com/marcy_jos.html Take a look and even a trip to taste the delicious food and enjoy some great music on the weekends. Marcy is the sister- in -law and Joey (Jo) is the wife of Rory (Marcy's brother). Joey and Rory are married and have a tremendous musical career. You can also see their TV show on cable. So family friendly... Check the link out for those details and even a family recipe straight from Marcy Jo's kitchen.
How cute is this store front!!!
This porch rocker and swing was so inviting... we had to take a moment to relax before we stuffed our faces.
And boy did I ever stuff myself... here is my 2 sweet biscuits with sausage gravy, my two eggs over easy and 3 strips of crispy bacon - OHHHHHH YEAH!!!!! My baby enjoyed every bite!!! (I forgot to take a picture of my EMPTY plate).
This is Marcy of Marcy Jo's... Marcy, Thanks again for a delicious meal and a wonderful country experience for me and my bff!!!
Take this week to enjoy some time with friends and a new restaurant that will tempt your tummy with greatness!! I would suggest - Marcy Jo's if you are in our neck of the woods.
Hello there everyone! Happy Thursday!!
We just finished recording our radio show "Graceful Living" for this week, so I am a little late getting this blog out. I've been wanting to tell you guys for some time now about an incredible pasta sauce I have discovered.
It's called "Grandad's Gravy". My daughter goes to school with a sweet young boy named Mauro. They are both going into the 4th grade, and have been in class together a few times through the years. Mauro's mom and dad have started a business in his grandfather's honor, to not only remember the wonderful person he was, but also to showcase one of his most beloved "secret recipes." You can read all about him on their website.
As you can see from the picture, the 4th grade Mauro shares a name with his grandad! I ordered a case of this after attending a dinner party with Mauro's mom and dad. We absolutely LOVED the sauce and are about to place another order. It truly is the most fresh tasting sauce from a jar that I have ever eaten.
And you guys know me well enough to know that I don't lie about food. Or steer people wrong. So trust me on this.
Caroline loves spaghetti, so I always keep several jars on hand for quick meals, but this sauce is worthy to be used in your best recipes that call for a "marinara" sauce.
Also, just so you know…
I know some blogs "advertise" stuff…we don't. (Well maybe except our CDs and tshirts!)
But every time I see this sauce in my pantry, or eat it for dinner, I think to myself, "I have GOT to share about this on the blog!"
So order yourself a six pack- you won't be disappointed. :0)

It's Hot and it's Monday. There is no other place to be if u are outside then in the pool. Shelley has let me yet again invade hers.
We had a great weekend in Ashville, NC at The Cove. I love it there. It's so beautiful and peaceful. Of course the kids freaked out for a moment because there wasn't any wifi or TV. After they got over their shock, the began enjoying the walking trails and the free soda fountain on the 3rd floor. Lol.
I'm always blown away when I look at pictures and read quotes from Billy Graham. He has always kept the Gospel so simple. Why do we have to complicate it so much?
All of our kids were able to come on the bus. They were so excited
I am sad that I didn't take any pictures of the four of them. We also got to see Leigh's Mom and Dad which is always a treat.
Well I'm sweating to death out here. Time to get in the pool. Have a happy day:) Denise.
