Camping at the Promise Land – Lancaster, PA

Camping at the Promise Land – Lancaster, PA

Our first camping adventure for the season – The Promise Land Campground in Millersville, PA. It was good to get away after being in quarantine for a few months. It’s always good to see friends you haven’t seen in a while. We were with the…

Confined to Redefine

Confined to Redefine

Yes, we are all confined! Let’s not let this be a negative in our lives. There are so many things to do in our homes and in our minds. This time is a defining part in our lives. Do we really need some of those…

Vision Board 2020

Vision Board 2020

2020! What an exciting prospect of new beginnings!

What is your vision for the new year!

Paul reminded us in Philippians 3:14:
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

It is good to have goals or visions in all areas of our lives.

Nothing is more irritating than a teenager or person in general that has no goals for their lives. We have purpose in life with Christ. It’s like the old saying, “If you aim at nothing you will hit it every time.”

Don’t live life – Que Sera, sera – Whatever will be will be.

Live life on purpose. Make some goals – Make a VISION BOARD!

There are many different type of vision boards. Check out Pinterest for some good ideas.

Things you will need:

  • Bulletin Board/Poster Board
  • Pictures/sayings
  • Tacks or glue
  • Craft supplies
  • Vision!

Some areas in your life that you can concentrate on:

  • Spiritual
  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Financial
  • Travel
  • Career
  • Family
  • Personal Development
  • Funnies
Finished Product!

Live 2020 on purpose. Make it a great one!

Ah-Fall!

CAMPING – Prince Galliztin State Park

CAMPING – Prince Galliztin State Park

Our first adventure in the camping was this month. We went up to our favorite get-a-way, Prince Galliztin State Park. We love just the quietness of it. It is the off-season though. Take a look at our video of our day away. We make pizza…

Beautiful Bedroom Redo

Beautiful Bedroom Redo

Finished! I love the sound of that word. I can’t wait to show you all the beautiful thing I put in our master bedroom. We have been enjoying our bedroom.


Before the painting and decorating
AFTER!

What a fun project. Here are some tips when you are decorating a master bedroom.

  1. Lighting – Have different light sources in your room. I have 4 lamps, 2 ceiling lights, and a string of lights on the curtains. Oh, and a few candles!


2. Texture – I incorporated burlap, ruffles, wood, black iron – it all works and makes the room interesting!

3. Pillows – Pillows add depth to a flat surface. They also say, “comfort”. Add pillows to benches, beds, chairs, or floor. Wherever you need a little something. They also draw attention to that area.

4. Personal Touches – Add pictures of the family, something you made, or just something that is special to you.

Ken made these shelves with some boards we already had and we stained them. I added pictures and d├ęcor.

5. Greenery and Flowers – Bringing the outdoors in, will perk up a room real quick. Don’t forget them. If you can’t quite figure out what is not right in a room, check to see if you have greens and a pop of flowers here and there.

Your bedroom should be a place you enjoy – love it!

Check out the makeover!

Have a great day!!

Easter Sunday Side Dishes

Easter Sunday Side Dishes

We love getting together as a family on holidays. Most of the time, family members will bring the same dish year after year. It’s the dish you look forward to – tradition. Once in a while, we will bring a new dish to the table,…

We love the prospect of a new beginning! With the start of spring starting today make plans to get the most out of spring. It is hard to believe that 3 months have already past in 2019. It feels like the new year just started yesterday.

I’ve made a bucket list for spring that you can download and make some memories. Take some picture and actually put them in a photo album! We are great at taking pictures, but what do we do with them? Usually, they are still on our phone or we delete them because we need space on our phone.

Have a great spring, which includes, Easter, Tax Day, Mother’s Day, & Memorial Day!
