Halloween Quilling Inspiration

Halloween Quilling Inspiration

I officially decided that I love using mini canvases for quilling! I grabbed a bunch of them during a Black Friday sale at Hobby Lobby a few years ago, and I used one set of four to make a project for my girls’ room. I pulled out the other four for this quilling project. The […]

Walden Farm Review

Walden Farm Review

Four years ago, my family thought we were going to a little pumpkin patch, but we actually stumbled upon one of the best-kept secrets of Middle Tennessee.

Spicy Basil Thai Chicken Recipe

Spicy Basil Thai Chicken Recipe

I didn’t know that a recipe I chose for a high school cooking class would later evolve into a Crouch family staple: a fiery Thai chicken dish loaded with basil. I enjoyed many flavors of the original recipe, but there were some ingredients that I just couldn’t stomach. When I made the dish at home […]

Crouch Family Reunion 2018

Beach or Branson for the family reunion? In the end, it was neither. We spent two days in St. Louis, and then we all went home to Mom and Dad’s where we really wanted to be anyway. It was a super fun family reunion, and it was extra-exciting because it was the first time since 2014 […]

My First Family Cruise

Last week, I got to cross “Visit Somewhere Out of the Country” and “Go On a Cruise” off of my bucket list. Back in October, my husband and I booked a 4-night cruise to the Bahamas on Royal Caribbean’s ship Enchantment of the Seas. At the time of booking, we weren’t sure when my dad […]
