Okra and Peaches...

I know, this really isn't the season for fresh okra and peaches...

But go back with me to August 1st... I had never made fresh okra before but was reading a blog and was inspired to go get some and try my hand at easy okra.   It was a beautiful summer morning... the first day of August. My husband was in the mountains enjoying a weekend reunion with college friends. I was determined not to stay cooped up in the house all day with 3 children so we packed up the van and headed to the farmer's market. We enjoyed a nice stroll, some fresh baked goods, and I picked up some beautiful fresh picked flowers, some okra and peaches and we headed home, for what was sure to be quite a yummy lunch! It was 10:30am... we were less than a mile from home. Not on the interstate, on a road we travel often, just minutes from our house.

  1. amen carrie! love this story but hate you had to go through this & so glad God protected all of you! karis is about to hit that 40 lb mark and we are about to shop for a new car seat and definitely not ready for a booster! thanks for this.

  2. Stacey- The Graco Nautilus is a great seat. We got our Apex 65 at Big Lots at a steal and it is a well rated seat. I would check to see if they still have them. Both those seats go to boosters after, but I have heard that the Apex is pretty wide to use as a booster.

  3. Very powerful thank you for sharing!
