We have been incredibly blessed over 6 years of marriage in many ways, but one in particular is that we have been given some great Target furniture for wedding presents, lots of hand me down furniture, and found a few incredible yard sale deals.
This year has been the first year that we have ever purchased furniture ourselves =)
God's blessings have absolutely blown us away. Not to just provide what we need but providing means to invest extra in our home, and to splurg on things we've always thought about.
One area of "ministry" =) that needed a little help was our kitchen table. (My parents gave us their old kitchen table - the kitchen table I grew up with. We painted and refinished it, and it was holding up pretty good.) The sad part was the chairs. Slowly but surely they died. We replaced them as we could when we found the right style at a yard sale but never got around to painting them to match. For the past year or so we have had a black table, two black chairs, two green chairs, and two folding chairs at our table. We've got incredible style, I know.
My love for hospitality never really slowed down because our lack of a proper dinning set. We just laughed about it and enjoyed our company.
Anyway, one of our silly little dreams that is now a reality: a table with EIGHT matching chairs.
[Side note: I was reminded today that these are indeed
NOT Easter cookies.
Praise the Lord that our salvation is not based on bunnies, flowers, eggs and butterflies!]
We spent the whole day enjoying our SPRING cookies. We started the morning by making the dough after breakfast, then rolled them out before lunch, baked em, decorated this afternoon, and ate some after dinner.
This is just fun.

I'll spare you the long list of descriptive names we gave them But, if you are interested, here's a few you can look for... Scary bunny, aka looks-more-like-mean-dog-than-a-bunny Olivia Grayce's monogrammed cookie Nose-less bunny
We created this blog before we moved from Louisville, Ky to Spartanburg, SC in 2007 so that old friends and new friends, and all of our family scattered throughout the country could keep up with our family and see pictures of our latest adventures. Hope you enjoy!
