Tuesday's Kitchen Inspirations

Was last week a bit incomplete?  Did you feel you were missing something and your life was a bit out of sorts?  Well, have no fear... I know what it was:  you missed last week's Tuesday's Kitchen Inspirations!  (Or perhaps I should say I missed it!)

I was at a US History conference (at our local college) for most of last week and just completely forgot.  But I am back with a photograph that we have in the breakfast room that just makes me smile every time I see it.   And how fitting... as the conference was about Colonial America and our founding fathers!

My BFF lives in Williamsburg, and this picture was taken four years ago when I took Sumter and Jackson up to visit her and her sons (Sumter's oldest best friend and his younger brother - my godchild).  We had spent the day at Jamestown and Yorktown, and the expressions on their faces epitomize the fun we had:  carving out canoes with oyster shells, exploring replicas of the ships that made the voyage across the Atlantic, and visiting the Revolutionary War camp.  What handsome - and inspirational - little patriots!


  1. I love History and Williamsburg...we have pics when Amy was little on the main colonial street in her "Williamsburg outfit" cranberry cordoroy pants and cream & cranberry flowers! Such a great place to visit!

    We need every young patriot we can raise!
    Enjoy your summer....! Jennifer aka Gigi

  2. I would love to talk my children there...such history! Just loved the earlier post on the music darling, fab!

  3. That photo is beyond precious! :)

  4. I adore Williamsburg, so much history and fun in such a darling quaint town! (Great shopping and outlets too heehee!) Love the photo of the boys, they are adorable!

    Come on over pretty lady, I have a tag for you! xoxo

    PS To answer your question on the recipe card for the spiked popsicles, I used the picnik online editing program, are you familiar? It is AWESOME - and free! I wish I could reply directly to your comments via email so you don't have to wait for me when I'm traveling for work and am away from blogs, etc. Do you know how to fix it? It's really easy! Let me know if you want me to show you! Hugs!

  5. P.S. I just remembered you already did this tag, SORRY! You don't have to do it again!! My fault!

  6. Love it...they are so stinkin' cute! This would definitely make me smile everytime I saw it too.

    Hope camp is going well. I bet his brother is starting to miss him. :)

  7. That picture makes me smile and I'm not even a relative!! Have a great weekend.


Thanks for your sweet comments... They make my day just that more Golden!
