by Edie Wadsworth on March 10, 2014

peacewithpapers.jpg

This is an update on a post I did about paperwork and since I’m a right-brained, creative, ADD, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-skinny-jeans kind of a girl, I thought you’d like to know that tax season didn’t stress me out at all. This system has worked well for me for the past two years, so I think I finally […]

  I’m ashamed to say that my kitchen has been sorely neglected until yesterday.  I spent the better part the afternoon cleaning and froofing, but have not been on my A game with cooking lately.  And by that I mean we’ve had frozen pizza twice this week.  What are we, newlyweds?  I even went to […]

Well.  First of all, let me say that I love weddings.  EVERY last thing about them. I get all teary eyed for the bride and groom.  I always imagine that I’m the photographer, looking for those candid moments that can’t be missed.  I love the wedding liturgy, the familiar words, the dancing, all of it. […]

Thank you for all your kind comments on our dorky homegrown videos yesterday and on Melanie’s book. You are the best kind of friends! Chocolate chip cookie recipes are like purses to me.  There’s one for every occasion.  Actually, that’s not true at all, because I’ve been carrying the same purse for over a year. […]

This Greek Lemon Chicken Soup via lifeingrace

The snow storm of 2014 that consisted of 2 inches of snow and chilled us Southerners to the bone has turned into sunshine and 50 degrees and distant memories of perfect snow days.  I love January to pieces and snow days that slide right up to a hint of Spring make me love my Southern […]

I may have an unhealthy obsession with the New Year.  Fresh starts are like cool, mountain air to me.  Maybe it has something to do with my January birthday or my tendency to want to hunker down, but January is one of my favorite months.  I read a lot of books, make a lot of […]
