A little bit of grace

You should always be kinder than necessary to people because everyone is fighting some kind of battle.

It's time for FALL!

It's finally here.... FALL ...which means.....summer is officially over. :( However since I'm not in school/college anymore and I don't get the summers off...I'm beginning to enjoy the fall season more and more each year! Some of my favorite things in football, Hokies, VOLS, pumpkin farms, apple cider & apple butter, chili, tree leaves changing colors, boots with jeans, and of course Southwest VA mountains.....

Our family pumpkins two years ago... Bailey, Huck, Sarah & Ben! :)

Mum craaazy.

We went mum crazy around our house. We decided to rip out our butterfly bush at our mailbox and plant mums. Then, I decided to plant some more mums in pots around the house and on the deck! We are landscaping pros now....

I'm so excited ... It's definitely time for FALL!! :)

Labor Day

We went to Blacksburg this past weekend for Labor Day. Natalie and Todd came in town from Chicago and we were able to meet our niece, Alison, for the first time! She was absolutely adorable! It was a great weekend having the family together....Ryan and Jen were visiting from Arlington, Nate and Sarah came up from ATL, and everyone was able to get off work to spend time together. Ohh and we watched a lot of college football....too bad the Hokies lost but at least the VOLS won -- they killed Western Kentucky! :)
A few photos from Labor Day....

A classic and favorite tailgating appetizer recipe:

Buffalo Chicken Dip:

1 bottle wing sauce
8oz cream cheese
1/2 cup Ranch
1 cup or more shredded cheddar

Mix together and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!
