It was a beautiful day today! I went outside and took pictures of  almost everything since it was so pretty, and while I did that I had apples baking in the oven for a bit "Cinnamon Apple Chips" <-- Click for post.

Cinnamon Apple Chips

Here's another super simple recipe I gave a try today while on the Daniel fast, I found it on pinterest.

All you need is:
2 Apples

First wash, peel, core, and thinly slice your apples, OR if you have an apple peeler corer slicer thingy use that instead. :)

After that place parchment paper on a cookie sheet, put your apple slices on it, and sprinkle them with cinnamon, Bake at 275 degrees for an hour, then flip them and bake them another 30-45 mins more or until kinda crispy.

Paying it Forward

Hey, just wanted to share a small moment that gave me "warm fuzzies" the other day.

I made a trip to our Post Office to mail some items from our etsy shop, before going inside I held the door open for a lady who was also going inside, she said "thank you" and then guess what she did?? she held the door open for a lady who was leaving the Post Office, and said "just paying it forward", and so I smiled at her.

The Daniel Fast 2014

Hey you guys!! how have you been??  I've been sick these past few days, I'm getting better though.

I wanted to share with y'all something I'm starting tomorrow: the Daniel Fast it's a fast that's 21 days long. This fast is an example set by Daniel in the Bible.

I participated in this fast last year, I really enjoyed it after the first 5 days or so, honestly I eat chocolate on a daily basis, so I craved it, but after the first 5-7 days I didn't anymore, not really..... it was a great experience and I'm excited about doing it again, I think it's important to discipline yourself in ways that you normally wouldn't, and in ways that no one else can. it's a choice that only you can make for yourself.

It's a New Year!!

Hey you guys, I'm a little late to be posting this, but it's 2014!! I look forward to all the things that this year has to offer, last year was a great year, and I believe this one is going to be even better.

I made a New Year's resolution, I decided I would take pictures of the sunset every day for the next year, I've already missed 2 days out of 5 though.... I've been sick and it's really cold outside, like.... it's going to get down to 20 degrees tonight, and 15 tomorrow night!! so I've been staying inside painting little signs and blocks for our etsy shop HERE.

Here are a few pictures I've taken so far this year.
