three years ago...

Three years ago (would say today but really yesterday), God made me the happiest person when He brought Russ and I together in marriage. We made a covenant before God to live a selfless, Christ-centered life together and love one another as He loves His own. We have been through a lot, but what an amazing journey it has been!

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:1-2


This is such an important truth in the role of marriage. I hope that this verse will reflect our lives, not only in our marriage, but in all we do as God continues to work in us and through us.



Celebrating our third year anniversary!

peach enchiladas

I have another dessert. The name might not sound too convincing but I promise, this is a good one. I made this dessert awhile ago for my husband. I wanted to make a "healthy" dessert and something he would really like. He likes fruity stuff, I don't. But...I thought I would try something new with good intentions on making something that would be good for us. So, I went to a roadside stand in town and got some of these...



The lady that was selling these peaches gave me a list of recipes and told me the peach enchiladas was the best one. I saw all the ingredients and there goes all my good intentions. I couldn't resist though. So, I thought I would try it. It sounded easy. And it was. Here is the recipe:

4 peaches quartered
2 8-oz. cans crescent rolls
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 12-oz. Mountain Dew

Mix melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. Roll 1/4 peach in crescent roll section from large to small end. Place in 12x10x2 pan or casserole that has been sprayed with Pam. Pour butter/sugar mixture over this. Pour Mountain Dew over all. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
So, it wasn't exactly a "healthy" dessert. But...it sure was good.
