No Theme

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone,
but also on trees, and in the flowers
and clouds, and stars.
-Martin Luther

Mornings are so peaceful....they are rapidly becoming my favorite time of the day. I sit back, with my cup of blueberry green tea and watch the sun come up; thinking, what a mighty God I serve!

Strawberry cake pops!! In a word . . . . Fenomenal!! That's the biggest word I could think of in two seconds, but seriously they're heaven!
The recipe is one box cake, mixed, baked, and cooled.
One jar of premade frosting.
Crumble the cooled cake and mix with jar of frosting.
Put in freezer for two hours at least or overnight.
I did overnight and they were still not frozen.  Then you roll into round balls of sweetness, dip in chocolate or yogurt stick a popsicle stick (you can find them in the craft aisle in walmart) and voila! you have the worlds yummiest cake!
AND if your a really cool mom you can even decorate them like your kids' favorite characters like elmo, or captain america, or dora, or spongebob. They are like the new cupcake. ;)
Y'all have fun. :)        CM


After living in South Carolina for five years and then having such a dry summer here in Indiana, it is amazing to me that I have flowers popping up that I didn't put any effort into. Flowers make me happy, and the less effort I have to put into them, the happier I am! So, I'm pretty happy right now! :) -RM

AND...we're back!! The moving process seems to finally be done! From the packing to the loading to the driving to the living in a camper to the moving into our house...we're finally settled! Now...on to picture taking!

I have this set of little, tiny cobalt blue vases that my Grandma Miller gave me. They are one of my favorite things because her grandma gave them to her when she was a little girl! Hand-me-down things like this are the best! :)
Baseball. Summer. Two things that go hand in hand. Even though I didn't get to go to all of the games, it was fun when I could get there. And our guys did really good this year. Go Pleasant Grove!!

a little break

To our few followers: I (Rachelle) am in the process of making the move to IN. We are turning off our phone and internet today, so I will be unable to post any of my pictures. We will try to get everything up and running again as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding, and for following our little blog!


oranges = happiness. :)

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. -Nathaniel Hawthorne

never stop dreaming. :)
no seriously, mom always wanted to grow
african violets and they just never did for her.
then we move to indiana and voila! we have the ever blooming african
violet so pretty in our window. :)

For some reason, the clover blooming in the field across the road from us, always looks so magical. Maybe it's transporting me back to my childhood when I used to romp through the fields picking clover for mom. Whatever the case may be, it's one of the reasons I fell in love with my little blue house two years ago. It seems like God has another adventure in mind for us. We will be leaving the little blue house across from the clover fields and heading up to IN. But, no matter where we end up, I will always look back on this house with great fondness. Here's to new adventures!

There's nothing quite like having fresh strawberries for breakfast! :)

Red represents so many things.
Jesus words. His blood. The color of the sunsets and sunrises in the sky. Roses.
Shoes. Fire. Love. Passion. Red is beautiful because of it's vibrancy, it's will to be bold even when it stands out above the crowd and looks different than most. I like red. :)
