So I have been searching for a good Scone recipe for a while now. This was prompted by the memories of having coffee and scones on many a Sunday morning with good friends back in the day. They were some of the best times in my life so naturally you want to try to relive those any way you can right?!
As I flipped through one of my favourite little cookbooks last weekend (Afternoon Tea, put out by Frankie magazine) I came across a Raspberry Scone recipe. Aw what the heck lets give it a go! SO glad I did, highly recommend trying these bad boys, they won’t disappoint!
Friends you are missed, distance is rough but keep the memories alive until next time! Cheers : )
so of course it’s that time,
a time when you remember things past and look forward to things ahead. As 2010 is rapidly disappearing in the rearview mirror i naturally begin to wonder what this bright new year will hold.
2010 was good to us, finally settled in our own little corner of the world (kelowna, BC) we began to dream once again. this past year took us to many places. some of those places we once called home, but many of them new and unfamiliar to us. This was a year of adventure, challenge, growth, family & friends, and much Love.
we can’t wait to see where this ship will sail in 2011, my husband wrote something once to me while we were dating and i feel that it is very key for this next year, it went a little something like this…..
“faith is the ship of doing.
it is never docked but is fueled by hopes of distant lands;
the Holy Spirit fills it’s sails and the word of God is the very wood it is made of.
you are it’s crew and when the crew stay on board it is not easily sunk.
Jesus is it’s Captain and the hurting world it’s destination, a redeemed world it’s goal.
faith is the ship of doing and it’s your choice to sail with it or not.”
a few pictures below only begin to capture this past year for us, enjoy and much love in this new year.
South to Omak,
A fine day in history, the day of my birth.
that’s right, i’m 27 and proud.
i have come to find that growing older is grand.
i feel like my perspective on life has changed and developed so much these past few years that being older has a new appeal to it.
you see things through new eyes as you add another year to your life.
i understand and respect my parents more than ever.
i listen differently, more intently, to people and those around me than i ever did before.
i see god in a new light and am more in love with him than years past.
i am learning to love in a deeper way.
so many new things how can you not embrace age?
just over a week ago we had a party to celebrate of course, another thing that gets better, parties! we decided to have a Garden Party. my cousin Cassandra Monster (yes that’s really her last name =) myself and of course my mother, threw some fabulous yummies, decorations, and well thought out details together and a grand party it was!
thank you all who came, helped and celebrated, it was a great day!
*the pictures below will give you a bit of an idea of the fun we had! *
