Welcome to “our house”…and the latest Coffee and Conversation! We’re so glad you’re here…
While Candy does SUCH a fantastic job hosting our little get togethers, since she gave you a glimpse into her life last week we thought it’d be fun for me to share a bit this week! How could I turn that offer down?!
Wedding bells are ringing ’round our place! This past weekend I went dress shopping as mother-of-the-bride with my oldest daughter. We were accompanied by my mother-in-law and younger daughter, and had a TERRIFIC time! (AND found ‘the dress!’) The next day we all went to an engagement party thrown for the happy couple by my daughter-in-law, our oldest son’s wife. I am so humbled by God’s grace as our family is growing 🙂 Our children-by-marriage are wonderful, Godly people, and we get along so well with their families as well. This is not something any of us take for granted, and I am forever grateful that God has blessed me far more than I deserve…
On the “kids at home” front, last week I worked at our church’s first-ever VBS, and had a blast. ‘Nother blessing – I got to serve alongside my 14-year-old son, who played a super-hero MC to the event – and displayed amazing depth of character and maturity as he led us all in games and prayer.
Makes a momma proud…
But back to the subject at hand, I think I was hungry when I picked this week’s posts… OK, so it coulda been alot worse…at least these recipes are pretty refreshing and healthy! But something about the beautiful weather made me think of mint and then fruit and then citrus and coconut (all of which I adore!) and so, well, here they are:
Just take a look at these yummy, I mean, amazing features!
I am trying so VERY hard to drink more water these days, but combining cucumber with basil AND lemon?! Pour me another glass, please! 🙂
Cucumber Basil Infused Water ~ Krystal’s Kitsch
Can I tell you that I was literally drooling when I saw this recipe? While I apologize for the potential TMI, I sincerely hope I didn’t ruin it for you. That would be a shame. These look unbelievable, don’t they?!

While the “lemonade” and the “tiramisu” initially caught my eye, the story behind this recipe was what caught my heart…

The perfect end to a perfect, heck, even a not-quite-so-perfect, day! 🙂
