Elizabeth Ann's leg of the race . . .

Hebrews 12:1 is the heart of my blog.
It talks about this race we are running and the joy that is before us.
We are each in a different leg of the race, and I think it's amazing and encouraging to see and hear testimonies from others who run this race with us.

It may be the same leg you are in, one you have already completed,
or one that you will face in the future.
If you've ever run, biked, or whatever in a race,
you know the power there is in seeing the masses of people surrounding you,
all running towards the same goal, no matter how fast, how slow, or how you trained for it.
Let's do this thing together, as He desires it to be done.

I want you to meet Elizabeth Ann...she has become a sweet sweet friend and I know you will love her heart...and her recipes! :)

Hi! I am Elizabeth Ann of Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box!

I love spending time in the kitchen, cooking and baking for others, and I ADORE home-cooked meals with lots of friends and family around the table!

I am so honored that Sarah asked me to share my heart with y'all today! She has been such a "blogging" blessing in my life this past year! :-)

My husband, Nate, and I got married a year and a half ago.

We are at a special "leg in the journey of life". .
A season of newlywed bliss!
I love to cater to Nate, whether that means breakfast in bed
or a large glass of sweet tea when he walks in the door!
He leaves our house each day knowing that he is loved, he is respected, and that no matter what happens during his day,
he is coming home to someone who absolutely adores him!

I want to cherish this sweet time together and not take it for granted!
Obviously, we look forward to parenthood at some point. . . but during this season . . . God has given us a special time in life just to enjoy each other!

I wanted to share a quick and easy snack I made Nate this week that will be a healthy hit with husbands and kids alike! :-)
