Happy Friday friends! Today is the EASIEST crockpot recipe I’ll share during the 52 week challenge. With only three ingredients this recipe is perfect for someone who doesn’t want a ton of prep time.

Week 25- Strawberry Jam

My favorite fruit is strawberries- the sweet, juicy nectar that I love to enjoy by itself, as a topping and mixed in with other flavors. I don’t discriminate and will eat strawberries in my smoothies, my cereal, on my waffles or ice cream and even in a bowl with a little sugar sprinkled on top. […]

May Recap!

I’m so glad May is over and sad at the same time! It was the busiest month for me work wise so I’m glad that it’s behind me but also so sad that summer is going by so quickly! This was our first month of being engaged and it was awesome!  Family Happenings Chris and […]

Loving Lately: Summer Products

While summer isn’t technically here yet, I’m enjoying the sunshine that FINALLY made it’s way to us this past week and soaking up some Vitamin D. It really does wonders for my mood!    As the newest season approaches quickly, I’m reminded that there is a completely different line-up of products needed for the warm days […]
