Coconut Pecan Dream Bars

It’s a dreamy world when pecans and coconut collide, so when my friend, Kassy, shared this recipe with me I knew it would be just the thing to help make my dreamy world a reality! I enjoyed a generous portion with a nice, hot cup of Millican Pecan’s Butter Pecan Coffee. Oh my goodness, just mentioning it makes me want to stop writing right now and go brew a pot. Must. Stay. Focused.

Love Grows Best

When I was little I loved Doug Stone’s song “Little Houses”. There was something that resonated in me every time I heard that song. I haven’t thought about it in a long time, until recently when my close friend, Jamie, brought it to mind. She mentioned to me that she saw a sign recently with the words “Love grows best in little houses” and that the sign made her think of our house. As soon as she said those words I had this tug at my heart. Kind of like the feeling you get when you think of your kids and how they are growing up too fast. Or the same feeling you get when you see an old childhood friend that you haven’t seen in awhile.

Pecan Conservationist Thoughts

It just hit me the other day that I am a part of a pecan conservationist family. It all started when we were gathering up wood to build a fire. We had invited some friends over for dinner and I was determined that we would also spend some of our time around a campfire. My husband LOVES when I come up with ideas like this! 😉
