HAPPY EASTER Y’ALL!!

Growing up as a preacher’s kid, the two biggest holidays in the church were Christmas and Easter. As a kid, I was so excited to see my basket from the Easter Bunny, get dressed up in a new pretty dress and go to church with my family. And what child wasn’t stoked for the Easter Egg Hunt?!

Support Your Local Girl Gang

“Whether you’re throwing up or breaking up, you want your girlfriend right there! I don’t trust women who don’t go to their girlfriends.”     ~Drew Barrymore

It’s so important for women everywhere to have a group of girls they can turn to no matter what. These girls teach you about life, love, and how to connect with people around you. They’re essential throughout life for guidance, confidence, perspective, etc… the list goes on and on. And I think that importance continues to grow as you age and mature.

I have a group of high school besties that I cherish dearly. Marta has been my best friend since 8th grade (wow we’re old HA!) and she’s never afraid to put me in my place and tell me when I’m just being stupid. I also met Carley in 8th grade and in high school she became a spiritual accountability partner for me. She’s also my long lost cousin, we’re just sure of it. 😉

Deeda

Ya’ll I am SO excited for this week’s blog because it is about one of my favorite people featuring one of my favorite foods.

My Deeda is a remarkable woman. The first thing I’m sure you’re thinking is “what the heck is a Deeda?!” Well, she is my paternal grandmother and even though she SWORE she would only be called ‘grandmother’ by her grandchildren, everyone calls her Deeda (pronounced like dee-dah).

My Deeda married my grandfather and they had 3 children together; my late Uncle Alex, my Aunt Joanna and my father, Eddie. While they were growing up, my Deeda worked a full-time job but still found a way to have dinner on the table. She would make a calendar for the month and although the kids always tried to change the menu so they wouldn’t have to eat beets, my grandmother was always prepared for dinners; and that is still the case today.

She loves having the entire family for a meal, whether it be to celebrate a birthday, holidays, any special occasion. She just loves to host and have people over.

My Aunt and my dad both have found memories of the summers when they were home from school and although my Deeda was working, she would make homemade ice cream sandwiches. They loved those things!

My Deeda is motherly, kind, classy and such a fantastic cook. She is hard-working, involved with her church, and has love to give to every one she meets. She has taught me so much over the years and I’m so excited to learn and practice even more of her delicious recipes. Continue reading “Deeda”
