The Rhythms of Summer Break

The Rhythms of Summer Break

I’m going to let you in on a secret about me only those closest to me know….I’m terrible at relaxing!! I’m a “list creator”, a “to-do list doer”, a “make it happen now” kind of person.  The only time I give myself permission to relax, fully relax, like lazy...

Treasures of Old

Treasures of Old

I haven’t always liked antiques. When I was younger, I thought the “old stuff” was outdated, useless, boring, and bland. I wanted furniture made to perfection with no scratches, no chipped paint, clean edges and absolutely, no previous owners!!! All that changed the day I moved to Surrey, England to teach.

Set Up For A Blessing

Set Up For A Blessing

On Wednesday, February 10th, 2021, my nana, the woman who prayed me out of the jaws of hell, passed away in her sleep. To say she will be missed is an understatement. Her life, her presence, her existence on this earth touched so many lives. She was a wife, a mother,...

Perspective=Reality

Perspective=Reality

I have a confession. I'm not always a positive thinker. Sometimes I allow my mind to bully me and my thoughts to call me names that would shock and anger the most tender heart. Sugar addict, lazy, limited, ugly are just a few of the names my thoughts try to label me...

The Gathering Place

What if I were to tell you that Sweet Biscuit isn't a real bakery? Would your first inclination be confusion or disagreement? In 2016, when the vision of Sweet Biscuit was birthed in me, I saw lots and lots of biscuits! And lots and lots of people eating those...

New Year, New Hope, New Perspective

New Year, New Hope, New Perspective

And just like that, 2020 is behind us. For some of us, there is relief and excitement for what lies ahead. For others, the grief and experiences of 2020 are being carried over into this new year as they run deep in our hearts and are still so fresh in our minds. Life,...

If I hadn’t been little…

If I hadn’t been little…

Boredom is part of our fallen nature. Just watch kids playing or see how long it takes them to ask in the car, “ are we there yet?” To me, discontentment is an adult form of boredom. Let me explain. When we moved into our 1200 square-foot bakery back in July 2016, it...

The Gift of Stewardship

I have always loved everything kitchen related. I’d rather shop at Bed Bath and Beyond rather than Belk. I went to college to be a teacher but I’ve always wanted the job as a waitress or the job in the kitchen. I just didn’t fully realize my destiny until I took a job...

When no one follows

When no one follows

I read a quote on Instagram the other day that said “ Don’t be afraid to be alone and don’t be afraid if you like it“ As a wife, mom and business owner, being alone is not a luxury I get very often. With the family and pets, there is always something to do or someone...

The Weeds

On a typical day, I have a to do list. During the week, that list can grow to be quite long but on the weekends, I tend to lay it aside and live outdoors. With 6+ acres, there’s a lot of living and exploring that can be done but I can confidently confess that I have...

The End of a Season

If you are a regular customer at Sweet Biscuit, you know we change our biscuit flavors every season.  To a customer, the end of a season sparks mouth watering taste buds for the flavors ahead and anticipation for the new creations.  But the end of a season is not...

“Response”-ability

“Response”-ability

My husband, Mike, surprised me a few weeks ago when I got home from work. In our barn, tucked in a giant Rubbermaid tub were 7 new responsibilities—5 baby chicks and 2 ducks. They were adorable!!!! And they still are, so yes, they are all still alive!! The initial...
