Hi, I’m Edie and this our family (minus 3 other beautiful and unique adult children). Five years ago I decided to give up my career as a family practice physician to stay home full time with my family. Shortly thereafter and by God’s grace and providence, I found another place to channel those creative wellsprings in my heart–thus, this blog was born. In short order, this southern belle and mother of four became a blogger, a homeschooler, a Lutheran, and a self-proclaimed goddess of the domestic arts. I document my faith journey, my mother love, my insatiable appetite for classic literature, lipgloss, cooking, C.S. Lewis…… and my eclectic, retro-cottage decorating style.
I look for the divine among the mundane and cherish the sacred grace moments that spring up through the stony ground of everyday living. I view my vocation as a wife and mother as nothing short of miraculous—-that God would entrust His beautiful created life to me is an honor of which I am not worthy. I am making this journey….this amazing life….with my husband of ten years, who continually inspires me, who never ceases to ‘raise the bar’ to deeper levels of love and understanding. And who always grabs the book I was just about to read next.
I am so glad that you have come.I will pour out everything inside me so that you may leavethis table satisfied and fortified.Blessings on your eyes.Blessings on your children.Blessings on the ground beneath you.My heart is a ladle of sweet water, brimming over.The Red Tent, Anita Diamanti
