I got this recipe from my sister-in-law and love it! I've always liked cornbread, but this recipe is by far the best one I've tried:).

The Best Cornbread

1 c. yellow cornmeal
1 c. unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 1/2 t. salt
1/3 c. sugar
1 egg
1 c. milk
1/4 c. oil


Combine everything and mix well. Pour into an 8-inch square baking pan and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Enjoy!:)

Blessings

A robins nest I discovered not long ago.

Blessings

I count my blessings one by one
Though great or small they be,
And know without the help of God
Not one would ever be.

I thank Him for these blessings
Each morning of each day
And then again at close of day
Before sleep comes my way.

He grants me all these blessings
Though sinner that I be,
And with the many faults of mine
I know that He loves me.

A Year Ago

Three hundred and sixty five days ago:) I saw my (then future) husband in person for the first time:). I can still remember driving into the airport parking lot late on June 9th with my parents and little brother and seeing my dear:) Graham standing just outside the airport terminal waiting for us. At the time we had been writing and calling for around four months. It was exciting, and I was nervous:):). We had a wonderful visit and at the end of it Graham asked if I could come up to Canada to meet his family. With my parents permission I said "yes!":) and my sister and I went up in August of last year. Graham and I were engaged in August and married (more wedding pictures here) three months later in November:).

On the front porch of my parents house in Florida:)

We don't have many pictures of that first visit, but here is one:). I couldn't have imagined that just one year later we would be married, eagerly awaiting the birth of our baby. The Lord has truly blessed us! I am so very thankful He brought Graham and I together; I could not ask for a better husband. :)
