About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

Apples to Apples to Apple Pie!

Sooo.... after going apple picking and picking way too many apples with Miss Ava recently, we ate as many as we could before I got it stuck in my head that I was going to become even more domestic and learn how to "can" recently.  I bought the jars, and the supplies and off I went, peeling away (while watching CSI Miami with the hubby)

Then after a process that I'm sure I made WAY more difficult (and messy) than it needed to be, I ended up with these beauties...

I've decide that this will become a September tradition.  Apple picking then canning of Apple pie filling for the "non-appley seasons". 


  1. Way to go! Nice work. Although the work involved in canning can be a lot, we so love to have wonderful choices to pull off our shelves in the winter.

    1. I was SO proud when done and I checked the seals. Now I want to make apple pie (but I'm waiting) AND I want to go apple picking and do it all over again (next week maybe) ;)


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
