Pregnancy Update: 13 Weeks

Figured I would pop in here and give you all a little pregnancy update as I’ve received many emails and messages making sure I am doing okay! Y’all are the best, seriously! I don’t plan to have regularly scheduled updates because thus far I can barely make it through life let alone a set blogging schedule. I finally have some energy enough to cook, photograph, and blog recipes so stay tuned for some new content coming up!!  So here’s what…

Family Thanksgiving Vacation

A California Dewey Family Thanksgiving

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that it’s sort of become a tradition that my husband and I spend our Thanksgiving in California. After I moved to North Dakota, we both decided it is too hard to try and split Holidays. So we told both of our families, Thanksgiving will be spent in California and Christmas will be spent in North Dakota. As usual, we made our annual trek to California this year for Thanksgiving and…

The Legacy of Grandpa Claude

I will never forget the first time I met Mark’s grandpa. He reached out his hand and said something along the lines of “Hi there, name’s Claude. And here’s where two good hands meet,” as he shook my hand. Little did I know that moment would be forever engrained upon my memory of a man who has become so special to me. Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Grandpa Claude, you just know what a truly special man…

The Journey of Finding Trust in God’s Plan

This is the hardest post I’ve ever written. This post exposes the most vulnerable parts of me.  But for some reason, I keep coming back to it. Something inside of me keeps saying, share it.  My finger has hovered over the publish button for weeks.  I can’t wrap my head around why this topic seems to be some sort of secret code of secrecy among women. I know there are more who have been down this journey. So I guess a part…

Four Life Lessons I Learned From Dad’s Quotes

If your Dad was anything like mine, he had these certain sayings that he repeated all over again as we grew up. Many of them were spoken to us in times of trial. And while Dad was one of the most loving and caring dads I know, at the time, I didn’t really understand his words of advice. As I grow older and become more experienced in what this world has to offer, I finally understand Dad’s famous quotes. And I…

Sometimes We’ve Just Got To Hit Refresh

I want to preface this by saying that this blog isn’t written with anybody in mind or directed toward anybody. I have just been having a lot of conversations lately about priorities and it seems like God is trying to put the question “where are your priorities?” in front of me lately. It keeps popping up in my life, my reading, and my conversations time and time again.   So much so that I even tweeted about it.  I struggle…
