Off to the farmers market with Rizo
Then to Illinois with a crew of four, three dozen muffins, and music in a VW Van.

HELLO MUMFORD & SONS–HERE WE COME!!!

TA-DA! {it’s me!}

I surprised Mi Amor on Friday.

Rizo was going home, so I hopped in and road-tripped it with her!
My dad was able to show me what he’s been working on for the Panama pastoral training seminar…so much hard work, I adore him for his endurance.
We were able to have one heck of a fabulous pizza for supper
{yay for celebrating by food!}
Amongst all the other fun and delightful things that happened with my parents over the weekend, my mom helped me surprise Mi Amor.
Although EVERY. POSSIBLE. BACKUP. PLAN. was taken into a twister and rained on…my treasure hunt for him after his day of work on Friday was taking him to little memories and then finally, to me…but, so many obstacles became roadblocks.
It was still one of the most memorable faces I will have imprinted in my head of Mi Amor. The unbelief in his smile and behind his eyes, adoration…a combination I had never experienced before. I felt like a treasure, even though he didn’t have to hunt.

Getting back to Poppins was bittersweet.
I loved vacationing with my parents…Rizo was right, it really changes your world when you take care of yourself and then go home, to be taken care of for a weekend…I have the most amazing parents ever.
They do WAY TOO much for me, I take them for granted every day…there is no way I could be grateful enough…the bar is just set too high. Which, I love that they love me so much, they show it well.

After a spa night with Rizo and Sonrisa,
I was transitioned into being home, awaiting my calls from St. Mary’s.
I Really want to go to this concert over the weekend though…and if I don’t get a call, I can’t risk going away.
Rough. Stuff.

This morning, awoke to my tummy wanting muffins…
So I accommodated.

simple simple.

 

.I put a honey/cinnamon glaze over top and paired it up with my delish “Golden French Toast” Keurig coffee. Mmm!

 

 

 

Luscious Lemons

I LOVE, I repeat, LOVE fruit. I will chow down on the variety God offers all day, if I could.

I decided that since the weather is getting nicer, for some, and the first day of spring is within a week, that I would share some lemon recipes.

Lemons are wonderful for bringing in that summer sensation, with their tart, bursting, citrus scent and taste.
