Happy President’s Day!

This rugged wooden carving of Abraham Lincoln, found at a local antique shop, inspired us wish you a wonderful day and to pray our nation’s chosen leader. President’s Day is actually established to honor our first President, George Washington and because his birthday is also mid-February, Abraham Lincoln. Some States officially recognize other specific former Presidents (our Sweet Home Alabama celebrates Thomas Jefferson!)

The Color and Characters of October’s End

The fire of color in the trees, the costumed characters knocking on our doors… begging for hugs and kisses… and the bounty of fall foliage makes for a beautiful close to October. As a reminder… Brown’s post “Happy Fall Y’all” is full of fun ideas for today if you are looking for some neighborhood or school party inspiration. And don’t forget to try out our free “Easy-Peasy Pumpkin Recipes” that can be downloaded from our site for some extra fall fun!


Today is National Family Day, declared as an official day of observance and celebration by President Bush, to specifically inspire the nation to eat dinner at home with the kids for at least one day! We know that Monday may not be the best night for every family to have dinner together. And in order to enable and encourage everyone to easily set aside one night out of this week to have a special dinner, we created a free (and delicious) special Family Night menu that can be downloaded from the left navigation of our site. Just pick a dedicated night for dinner at home with your family, and make it happen! You can even involve everyone in the shopping, cooking and cleaning!

A Day We Will Never Forget. Where Were You?

The irony of 9/11 happening on a date that corresponds with a call for emergency help has not escaped anyone of us. Nothing in our collective experience could match the pain, panic and horror of that day. I will be visiting the new memorial in October, so I am preparing… Melanie’s comment to this post included these beautiful words, “This year, I will pause to remember and honor those lost, pray for those who lead our country, and remember to always, always, always find hope. However, as powerful as evil is, love is more powerful than evil. The towers fell, but faith, hope, and love remain… and the greatest of these is love. (“Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.” ~ Romans 12:21)”
