I am excited about sharing a brand new recipe that I actually made on repeat last summer, in fact, my boys have been begging me to make it again! It’s a recipe that I know will be a HIT with the dad in your life (hint: you are going to love it!)!
With Father’s day this Sunday, I realize this day can be hard for many — I want to recognize that these “holidays” can bring up a concert of emotions; missing, joy, love, anger and even pain. Please know that is not my intention.
My Dad passed away 17 years ago this July, just weeks after my 40th birthday (go ahead, do the math!) 🙂 and I do miss him so very much. But my boys and I enjoy spoiling my husband by making a nice dinner, sometimes we have people over, sometimes it’s just us.
This Father’s day will be a bit different as we’re heading to Montana to begin furnishing a house that our son and some friends will be living in this year.
Swimming is HARD work! Haha! All those years I have cheered our boys on from the sidelines and watched them do the butterfly, IM, etc. Well let me tell you, this old girl is whooped! But it feels so good! I’ve built up to 900 yards, still a way to go to my mile. I am not fast, but that’s not the goal.
What’s Cooking in my Kitchen?

Gift Ideas for Dad
Psst, honey if you are reading the post this week, stop here! 🙂
Sometimes I have great ideas for a gift for my husband or the dads in our life. This year, not so much — I went the direction of something needed. Since my husband rarely shops for himself, there were a few things he needed.
- Flip Flops | Last year his flip flops flopped, the totally fell apart, so I bought him these Reef Flip Flops, they are super cushy and soft and I think a nice balance between casual and a little nicer.
- John Eldrege’s newest book, Resilient: Restoring Your Weary Soul in These Turbulent Times. We both gleaned so much out of his last book, Get Your Life Back (highly recommend!), one of our favorite authors.
- When we first met, my hubby had an ancient pair of Birkenstocks, I rather disliked them! But Birks have made a huge come back and so I bought him this pair of sandals.
Regardless of your relationship with your dad, I hope you know that you have a heavenly Father who loves you more than your earthly father, in fact, He died for you and wants a relationship with you!
Enjoy this beautiful song by Cory Asbury “The Father’s House” and know that I am here to talk (just email me!) if you are hurting and need a friend today!
I am forever grateful for you,
