PatAndCandy started over…a cup of coffee shared with a friend!

What do YOU look for when you meet up with a friend for coffee?

A time for catching up?  Being encouraged or inspired?  Getting some new information or an idea that can help improve your life?  Household or organizing tips or techniques?  Parenting or marriage insights? Help for your homeschool?

Yup,  that’s kinda what we thought: what don’t you talk about over a cup of coffee, right? 😉


About PatAndCandy.com

We’re Pat and Candy. Two friends who come from vastly different backgrounds and have very different approaches to life, but who find much in common when it comes to serving our Lord and caring for our families. With a combined total of over a half a century of parenting and homeschooling and striving to be Proverbs 31 women we figure we might have a thing or two to share with others. Since we began, our site has grown in leaps and bounds and become quite the community!
