The staff retreat to Big Bear was good, challenging and exhausting. It's always awesome to be able to spend time with the staff, they are amazing and hilarious. We are a little burned out and are praying that God will give us the strength and excitement to continue serving and that He will also reveal to us when it is our time to be done. I have been trying to not let myself get too involved in everything that is going on there because when I do I find myself upset and frustrated. There have been so many changes and more coming, a few that Chris and I don't necessarily agree with. It's frustrating and pointless when you give your opinion on something and no one takes it to heart or considers it. So, that's where we are at. Here are a couple pics from the weekend.
When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. What you’ll need. Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. Step one. Get your ingredients out. I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. Mix it real good. Time to cool it down. Now comes the sweet part. This next step is money. Lordy. If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce. Do it. If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck. This is the recipe from my mother in law. It is life changing. Ta-Da! Tag me on Instagram at
