Today I am at the beach. Our yearly vacation is coming to a close. I can tell you right now, this was a MUCH needed vacation.
I have been sitting out here on this beautiful deck, getting my Jesus time in, enjoying my coffee, and watching the waves roll on. Seriously — this view is my favorite and I am SO glad that I got a whole week to unwind and experience it all.
This week, I have read some pretty amazing things on the Internet. I thought I would share a few of them with you today.
~Sarah Bessey really hit the nail on the head with this post about selfishness and your calling. All moms have felt this way at one time or the other, but she lays it out straight for us.
~I love this post from Rachel Wojo about setting morning routines for your family. I need to practice this more!
~Emily Freeman shared about rest for your soul this week at Incourage that just really got me to thinking about MY own life and how busy I have become.
~From one of my favorite sites about writing, today they shared to just forget the words and write. I forget to do this sometimes and find myself trying to get the post or the page just right in order for someone to read it. I just need to write my truth.
Food That Has Me Drooling This Week
Here are some recipes that I have discovered recently that are on my radar to make!
~Brownie Brittle Popcorn from Rachael Cooks
~7 Up Pound Cake from Plain Chicken
~Garden Veggie Salad Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce from Detoxinista
~Zuchinni Pull Apart Bread from I am Baker
~Slow Cooker Beef Sirloin Tips in Gravy from Six Sisters Stuff
~Lemon Garlic Chicken Kabobs from The Lemon Bowl
~Creamy Stove Top Mac and Cheese from Chez Us
~Lemon Tassies from Handle the Heat
~Simple kale Salad from eat Within your Means
I’ve eaten some pretty fantastic food on this trip — especially the Shrimp and Orzo I had at Ginny Lane Bar and Grill. I cannot wait to tell you about that place!
I also had some blackened shrimp over fried green tomatoes with a creole sauce as well for an appetizer and let me tell you — it was flipping awesome! I am going to try to recreate that dish once I get home.
Anyway — I will be headed home tomorrow from our week long beach vacation. I love getting away, but I love going home more!
How has your week been??
