Today I choose to embrace my life and experience complete joy. I am richly abundant, healthy, creative, brilliant, peaceful, and happy!!
I am so blessed.

I don't remember where I saw the above quote.
I do believe we should embrace life, and embrace it with confidence!
It is truly a blessing.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks

I know almost everyone {in the blog world} knows The Pioneer Woman. I love her site! I love reading about life on the ranch. I love her photography. I love her recipes. Oh, how I love her recipes. She makes cooking look so easy. So, I guess you heard about her cookbook? I bought it soon after it came out. I've bookmarked over half of the recipes. My favorite thing about the Pioneer Woman's recipes is the step-by-step photos. They are so handy. In the last two weeks I've made three of her recipes. I plan on making more in the coming weeks!

These are so simple, yet very delicious....and convenient. When I eat fried eggs, I eat just the yolk. It's my favorite part! With these, I eat the entire egg. No more wasting!

Buttered Rosemary Rolls
DELICIOUS! That's the only word to describe these rolls. I baked them at 11 p.m. one night. The house smelled delicious!

Chocolate Sheet Cake
Ree calls this "The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake. Ever." This cake didn't last long around our place. It really is the best. I've been looking for a good chocolate cake recipe, and I think I finally found it! I'm glad I finally tried this recipe.

Two Videos

I just wanted to share two videos that touched me today.
The first made my cry; the second made me smile.
They are both worth the few minutes it takes to watch.

Oh, Deer!

I have this little dear that was on my brother-in-law's birthday cake last year. Lately I've become enamored with deer and moose {more on that later}. The other night I decided to take some pictures of this little girl {yes, girl. I came to the conclusion that she is indeed a girl} with a string of Christmas lights. I like them! It almost looks like she's in the spotlight...

Luke 2:14

Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good will toward men.
