Here We Stand

by Edie Wadsworth on October 31, 2009


Why did Martin Luther nail those 95 theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg? Why did he risk his very life so boldly at the Diet of Worms when he said, “I cannot and will not recant. Here I stand. God help me”? One reason. For the sake of the gospel of Christ. […]

My best friend from high school celebrated her 40th birthday this weekend. Shawna (shown middle) also happens to be my sister’s (shown on your left) sister in law. I know, I know. But it’s the south, remember? And how did she celebrate this milestone, you ask? With a real life ho-down square dance —–in a […]


The Morning After

by Edie Wadsworth on October 29, 2009

The cups of coffee I’ve had so far today: If we’re friends on Facebook or you follow me on Twitter, then you may know that we just purchased a crack pot espresso machine. I’m on a 36 hour bender. And when I crash, it’s not gonna be pretty. If I hit rock bottom and come […]


How to Enjoy Carving Pumpkins with Small Children

by Edie Wadsworth on October 28, 2009

In my naivete’ as a young mother (many years ago), I would often save the pumpkin carving for Halloween night. Because small children jacked up on chocolate in layers of netting and green paint isn’t stressful enough. I’ve since learned that pumpkin carving can be enjoyable—–under the right circumstances. ::And here are those circumstances:: You […]

Sewing machines, fake greens and fried dough

by Edie Wadsworth on October 24, 2009

The sale was supposed to start at 8am. By 7:45, 1/3 of my stuff was gone. Just like that. No time to mourn. No time to reminisce. Just gone. And by 11:30, we were packing up a small load for Goodwill and headed to the local fall festival. It was nearly the perfect yard sale. […]


It’s my Yard Sale and I’ll cry if I want to……..

by Edie Wadsworth on October 23, 2009

disclaimer: neither the weeping small child nor the wonderful knitted hat are for sale I found this {and many other wonderful pictures} the other day when I was preparing for the yard sale. And I feel a little like this today. Now I remember why I don’t like having yard sales—-it’s a lot of work […]

by Edie Wadsworth on October 17, 2009

As the cooler weather sets in and I am rummaging through my closet to find my boyfriend lounge pants, I am reminded of this post from last winter and thought I’d share it today. It’s another tribute to my love for make up. I am indeed a southern girl through and through. Visit my friend […]

So you don’t start calling me Fatty McButter Pants…..

by Edie Wadsworth on October 13, 2009

…….I’m trying to get back into my fitness routine. Summer stress and difficult goodbyes has put a bit of a damper on my running and bit of muffin top on my yoga pants. Nothing motivates me more than a fresh playlist on my iPod. Here’s what currently playing: 1. Long Way Home :: Nora Jones […]
