On This Day…

This morning, I sat for a while and I was thinking about an intense conversation the Mister and I had yesterday. It was a GREAT little conversation (insert sarcastic tone). He basically put me in my place for treating him like a child. In case I’ve never said this here before, “My name is LeslieRead more

Mission Sandwichon

Two years ago, the Mister and I went on a mission trip to Katira, Costa Rica. It was an amazing, life-changing experience. You can read about that here. This summer, our church is going on mission to Peru, but sadly, we won’t be on that trip. We have lots of things going on in lifeRead more

Spicy Maple Bacon Popcorn

Hearty Taco Pie for a billion

One day last year at TJ Maxx (my favorite store), I came upon this absolutely BEAUTIFUL 15 inch cast iron skillet. It was $29.99 and I couldn’t pass it up. The price and the size made it so hard to walk away from. This pan normally goes for upwards of $70.  A couple of weeksRead more

He Didn’t Forget- A Valentine’s Day story

For Valentine’s Day, I received my favorite lip gloss and a beautiful bracelet from my husband. He is so amazing and thoughtful!
