It’s finally here! Have you been waiting for summer to end like me? Here in Florida, there’s only a handful of items we can grow during the summer. It’s so hot and I long for fall so I can start planting again. I just planted a few rows of green beans and speckled butter beans a few weeks ago and they are popping up nicely.
I’ve been gardening for years and every year, it’s always a trial and error. If something goes wrong one season, I just learn from it and try again the next season. Do you ever have those “so close to amazing” moments in the garden? Ok, I’m the only one LOL? Continue reading
Do you ever have a day where everything goes right and you’re like “bam”, I’m the best mom ever? And, then there’s those days that absolutely nothing goes right. Are you with me?
I am honored to be part of the Launch Team to my new friend KariAnne’s book – So Close to Amazing! KariAnne Wood is the beautiful inside and out lady behind Thistlewood Farms. If you don’t already follow her blog, go check it out. You can thank me later. She’s absolutely amazing!
My job as part of the Launch Team is that I get to read the book before it hits the shelves in September. I can share with you some highlights and from the looks of Chapter 1, this is going to be an awesome book, especially for all of us moms! Oh, and I didn’t mention all the cute DIY tutorials at the end of each chapter. 🙂
Feel free to share this first post with all of your friends and join me on this journey. Your friends can sign up for my blog HERE. This way, they will receive all of my weekly updates I will be making weekly prior to the launch of the book in September. Chapter 1 is about taking a “Jump”. Have you ever been in a situation where you want something so bad but not sure if it’s the right thing to do? Do you ever hear God speaking to you and you just ignore him until he’s tugging on you and tugging on you? NO. Oh, ok….well I have! Instead of trusting HIM, I get scared. This book is encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and JUMP! So, are you with me?
Embrace the you God created you to be.
And discover the amazing that was there all along ~ KariAnne Wood
I’ve recently found this amazing burger place that I just can’t quit talking about! It’s not your typical burger joint, like Five Guys or Burger Fi. It’s way different! It’s called Square 1 Burgers. Have you heard of it?
When you walk in, you feel like you’re out west somewhere. The cool thing is, that it’s a Florida based restaurant with only a few locations.
You can get these bad boys on Wednesdays for only $3. That’s right! Their beer battered homemade onion rings are the best around and only $3 every Wednesday. Served with their homemade sooner sauce that is amazing!!!
Having a little fun with my kiddos and my nephew! He He
The decor is so inviting. They have paintings of cows and street signs all of over the place. I took this photo on the way to the bathroom!
Now, onto the food. I literally can’t stop talking about this place. They are reasonably priced and actually, you could share a meal with someone as the portions are huge! They even offer your burger “green style” aka NO BUN. Not to mention that you will want to get the fried dill pickles or the baked mac ‘n cheese for an appetizer. LOL
The one that I frequent and that’s closest to me is in The Villages. Be sure and check them out!
And of course, Enjoy!
