Something NEW

There is something new happening at #casadegalvan in 2017 and that is a podcast! The Mister and I attended BlogherFood 2016 in October last year and attended a really cool breakout session about podcasts. (Even cooler  because it was hosted by Aarti Sequiera, and her husband Brendan McNamara from “Pass The Salt” and Lucrecer Braxton fromRead more

So long 2016- Hello 2017!

What a year! A lot happened in 2016, both in the world and in my personal life. Good things and bad things, sad things and happy things. I wanted to give up MANY times but I didn’t. I’m sure a lot of you felt the same way, but honestly, that is what got me throughRead more

Five Things I’ve Learned About My Marriage

Being married has taught me some things that I don’t think I could have learned any other way. Strange behaviors and strange information entered my life the day I was officially married to The Mister. We have been married for 8 years and I have learned a lot in that time. We have had many ups andRead more

Paleo Chili Bowl

My Simple Superhero Paleo Chili is probably my go-to meal when I don’t have a lot of time or a lot of money to spend on groceries. It can feed The Mister and I for a few days and we can eat it a couple of different ways. The other day I had just enough forRead more

Remember

Remember to give thanks. Remember that God still sits on His throne. Remember to pray for our newly elected leaders. Remember to pray for our nation. Remember to represent God well. If you don’t remember these things today, you might feel miserable and angry and like the world is falling down around you, but youRead more

If I Could Turn Back Time

Thirteen years ago, I was a very different person. If I could go back, let’s say 15 years, I honestly don’t think I would change a thing about it. Fifteen years ago I was in college, making really poor choices, doing really dumb things, but I still don’t think I would go back and changeRead more

Pre-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Thanksgiving is coming! It’s coming really fast. Around the Galvan house, we take our holidays very seriously. The Mister brines a couple of turkey’s every Thanksgiving, and I doubt that this year will be any different. One thing for sure, he’s not in big box retail anymore so, I will have him home all dayRead more

Attitude of Gratitude

As we start to settle into November, I am always reminded about being thankful and having an attitude of gratitude.  The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” I remember the first time I read that verse, I thought, “Wow, IRead more

Truth Squad

Does my butt look big in these jeans?  Honestly, I would be ok if you said, “Yes,” because I’m lacking in this area . Anyone else find it hard to answer questions like that? Especially when it pertains to someone you love, or really care about? If you ask me a question that you probablyRead more

Brave
