Emma's Kitchen

I do believe we have another "Cook" in our family. 

Emma loves her kitchen and pretend food.

I am so looking forward to making cookies and having tea parties with this little darling. 
Soon, Emma, very soon! 

These pictures remind me of when I was a little girl and the pictures my mom took of me. 

I loved my dolls and playing pretend. I still do...
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends. 
Enjoy the moments . . .

Book Preview ~ When Mercy Rains

When Mercy Rains, by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Suzanne Zimmerman was only seventeen and pregnant when her shamed mother quietly sent her away from their Old Order Mennonite community in Kansas. With her old home, family, and first love firmly behind her, Suzanne moved to Indiana, became a nurse, and raised a daughter, Alexa, on her own.

Now, nearly twenty years later, an unexpected letter arrives from Kansas. Her brother asks her to bring her nursing abilities home and care for their ailing mother. His request requires that Suzanne face a family that may not have forgiven her and a strict faith community. It also means seeing Paul Aldrich, her first love. Paul, widowed with an eight-year-old son, is relieved to see Suzanne again, giving him the chance to beg her forgiveness for his past indiscretion. But when he meets Alexa, his guilt flickers in the glare of Suzanne's prolonged secret-one that changes everything. Suzanne had let go of any expectation for forgiveness long ago. Does she dare hope in mercy-and how will her uncovered past affect the people she loves the most? Purchase Kim's book HERE.

Winter Arrives Early

Winter came early last week in a mad furious rush. On Monday we enjoyed temperatures in the 70's--which gave us plenty of time to finish our last-minute yard work before the cold arrived.

Monday night, temperatures dropped over 35 degrees in one hour. The next day, temperatures continued to drop into the low 20's and by Wednesday, we had temperatures in the teens. This lasted until last night. We even had our first snow on Sunday of a little over an inch!

Book Preview ~ The Brickmaker's Bride

The Brickmaker's Bride, by Judith Miller

Yearning for a fresh start, Ewan McKay travels with his aunt and uncle from northern Scotland to West Virginia, promising to trade his skills in the clay business for financial assistance from his uncle Hugh. Hugh purchases a brickmaking operation from a Civil War widow and her daughter, but it's Ewan who gets the business up and running again. 

Ewan seeks help from Laura, the former owner's daughter, and he feels a connection with her, but she's being courted by another man--a lawyer with far more social clout and money than Ewan. Besides, Ewan has resolved he'll focus on making the brickmaking operation enough of a success that he can become a partner in the businessand be able to afford to bring his sisters over from Scotland. Purchase the book HERE.
