Monthly archives: August, 2018


Hey everyone, Happy August! We love this time of year where Fall is starting to cool off the wind, and the leaves are hinting on changing colors, with a few faintly falling. The katydids are singing of the new season, and in the background you can hear the roar of… FOOTBALL SEASON!!! Yehhh… just around the corner, and what a fun time of year. Of course, for all those great tailgate parties, you want to have some coolster recipes to take to the event! Please send us your favorite football recipe, we would love to share, and also, who is your favorite team? We have to say here, ummm WAR EAGLE! Except when they play the Tennessee Volunteers… we share the orange but Kathy goes for ROCKY TOP! HEY 🙂 Have a fun football season everyone, cheer, encourage, shine and love! 🙂

Sooo… August 5th-11th is National Smile Week 🙂 :)!!!!… Below are some “smile” quotes that we thought were awesome. A lot of times when we want to share kindness, love, and peace… all we have to do is smile. Shine on everyone. We would love to hear your favorite “smile” or encouragement quotes!! …Much love, and we look forward to chatting again next week!

Hey y’all. Pull up a chair and let’s welcome the end of summer and, for some… the beginning of Back to School. 🙂 Ohhh, I remember those early schedules (yep, more coffee, please). Hehe! …We reflect and are always reminded this time of year of all the wonderful educational opportunities our great country has! Thankful that we have the avenues to learn and to chase our dreams. When you get “back to basics”…it all started with our amazing Constitution that so beautifully describes our laws and liberties, and unites, “We the People.” Happy “Back to School!” …Smile, encourage, shine, and we look forward to chatting with you again next week!
