We are continuing to make our way around the kitchen and see the tweaks that have just been completed.  From the get-go, I wasn’t a fan of the buffet that we put in the eating area of our kitchen during the major remodel we did four years ago.  Frankly, it just looked too granny to […]

The Life in Lifestyle – Random Thoughts

Jordan and Janette

Hi everyone!  Jordan and I arrived home from the Haven conference around 2 a.m. Sunday morning, and boy were we tired!  Thankfully, she did two-thirds of the driving on our six-hour trip.  I don’t know about you, but once I get past the midnight hour, I just assume that everyone else on the road has […]


Five Recipes That Use Summer Veggies and Fruits

We signed up to get a box of organic veggies every week this summer from our local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).  The way it works is that we pay one lump sum of money at the beginning of the summer, and we get a weekly box full of produce until late October.  Everything is fresh, […]
