Last night Chris and I went to one of our high schoolers grad party which was awesome. Then we went to mom and dads so Chris could play wii with dad and smoke Cuban cigars and so mom and I could ride bikes for our nightly exercise. We had an awesome time and made s'mores....mom busted out some old dvds from our church when we first broke off from Calvary and had our first day as "Kindred" at the Elks Lodge. It was the coolest thing but so sad. Chuck wasn't sick yet and the church was booming and you could see Christ' love flow there. Ahh as time goes by you slightly forget how amazing it was and what an incredible teacher Chuck was. Then we watched the 1st anniversary of Kindred and also the first morning on the new property. Chuck was very sick then and ended up passing away 7 months later. We stayed until 12:15am just watching amazing memories. We also watched his memorial service...ahh my heart is broken. Time does help heal the pain but it's so hard to understand why the Lord chose to take such an incredible man home at 48. We miss him dearly. My sweet friend is so strong, I don't know how she does it....losing her dad at such a young age. The Obremskis are an amazing family. I am so thankful for them. I know Chuck and Pops would not want it any other way than to be in Heaven with Christ but I am missing them so much.
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
