I woke up this morning to find a freshly renewed, foggy field behind our house. I was reminded of God's amazing grace and mercy.

Hope your week is going well.

Best Carrot Cake Recipe EVER

If you're a carrot cake MUST try this recipe.  The title makes your mouth water..."Carrot Cake Supreme With Buttermilk Glaze and Cream Cheese Frosting." 

My only advice is that you make if for someone else's party so you can get it out of your house ASAP!  It is the perfect mixture of salty and sweet.  Mmmmm.

Ok, so here's the link to the recipe:

Here are a couple pics of how ours turned out.

I used some of the leftover salted caramel glaze to drizzle on the top and loaded it with coconut and chopped pecans.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

A friend and I were talking about how fun it is to bake with pumpkin this time of year. Can't wait to make some pumpkin cream cheese muffins!

Have a great day!

Grandma's Pretty Jewelry

We have a family reunion every Labor Day. This one was different without Grandma there....but it was so good to be with everyone again and we all had a really good time.  The ladies of the family all had the privilege of taking a little piece of grandma home with them.  We all took turns admiring all the unique pieces that Grandma loved.  Being an artist, she always had a bright, colorful piece of something on. 

I am so excited to have these things from her.  I remember to this day how excited I was to get to play with my mom's treasured jewelry as a kid, and I hope my kids can do the same with these precious things.

This one is one of my favorites. I love the airy shape of it. She had good taste.

Loved these earrings too.  So pretty.

Just wanted to share these pretty things with you.  Hope you have a great Monday. Praise God for this AMAZING weather!
