June’s Favorite Things

Hello, sweet readers!


Can you believe that it is already June?

Our last month was full of good things: kissing sweet nephews, visiting with family (on all sides!), early morning coffee visits with my mom, special date days together, essential oil fun, meeting new friends  and celebrating birthdays with loved ones.

I felt like I was growing more into an adult woman when I (one) invested in a good pair of shoes (not my traditional Target spree :), (two) started pursuing small but meaningful steps to healthy living and pre-pregnancy health, (three) volunteered at a church function …  while not really knowing anyone, (four) went to a neighbor’s bbq all by myself as hubby was hard at work (not something this shy introvert normally does ;), (five) wrote an article on the Duggar family’s recent events (I normally stay away from controversial subjects), (six) made big, grownup decisions that involved saying some no’s, a lot of yes’s and working with a busy schedule. Overall, I feel a little more woman-ly … which seems to be a funny thing for a twenty-five year old to say.

My most favorite thing this month?

When the Heart Calls

Ah! If you haven’t seen this series but love all things quirky, romantic, old-fashioned and wholesome please check hop on Netflix and enjoy!

The lovely, original story (filled with Christian values) has me falling in love with Elizabeth Thatcher, her students, miner towns and all things homey. I mean, I’ve been lighting candles, baking, and wearing aprons far more then usual (although, guilty, I do do those things … a lot).

Womanhood by Bethany

This article.

It is the epitome of all that I am and have been. Each sentence describes the feelings I have been unable to phrase since I began dating Dalton, became engaged, married and now try to live the grown-up life with my beloved (which is such a special treat, ya’ll).

Do read this.

If you are one of my fellow awkward, change-dreading readers (like myself) who has found the adjustment into adulthood crazy enjoy knowing that you are not alone and someone has put all your thoughts into well-formed paragraphs and that it is okay to feel the way you do.

Eggless Cooking’s Gluten-Free Applesauce Banana Muffins


These works-of-wonder just came out of the oven and I am practicing the greatest restraint not eating more.  They are simply delicious and for being gluten-free, eggless, dairy-free and refined sugar free they are divine.

With love, coffee and a muffin in hand,

    Wow! Sound like you had a great month! 😀

    I know what you mean about feeling a bit more “womanly”, with all of those actions. Some days I feel as if I am too young to be thinking about pregnancy, or building a house. Or like yesterday when I needed to call and make a doctor’s appointment, and my mom laughed so hard at me asking her if she could call, cause I was scared… “You’re an almost 25 year old married woman. Grow up and get over it!” she said. Yeah… ;D

    Enjoy those muffins! They sound wonderful. 🙂

      Hahaha, oh, Angel!! I can totally relate to your funny doctor story. I always tell the receptionists, “Hello, um … I’m a newly married woman and have never scheduled my own appointments before so I don’t really know what to do …” 😀 I really appreciate the ladies who laugh at me and then gleefully help.

      By the way, I tried out your roasted radishes recipe — yum! Our neighbor generously gave us a bag full and since I had no idea what to do with them I tried out your recipe. I think we’ll definitely be adding them into our regular meals. Yum!
