When DeAnn asked me to be a part of this wonderful idea, I was excited! Our family loves to serve those in need and we also like to love on those we appreciate by doing little things: a note, a water bottle, a baked good... The little things can create just as much impact as giving away your good brand name shoes because it's all about the heart behind it. My parents did a great job modeling this and helping us gain a sense of ownership for service projects. Now I am honored to be able to serve others with my family. I almost cried this summer when my son came in the house and said "Can I give the lawn care workers something to drink? They look thirsty." Wow, I was truly flabbergasted when I heard my son make serving his own thing, not mom and dads thing. Here are a couple of things that we have done: Random Acts of Kindness Coin Jar and our Make A Difference Bucket List and my favorite Operation Brown Bag that was featured in the Simple Summer Issue.
I am super excited to have Mari here sharing one of her favorite recipes. After finding Mari's site called Inspired By Family Magazine through Pinterest as I was looking for kindness jars I just had to ask her to do a Dish & Serve post. So happy she agreed to do one!
If you want to print out the recipe then head over to her web site.
Have you noticed that I have joined Instagram? Well I have and I may be obsessed. Let me know your user name on Instagram and I will follow you. Also if you have a board on Pinterest that you pin a lot of service type pins to let me know that I would love to follow you!
Hope you are enjoying fall! For your viewing pleasure! I took these in Santa Fe in the Sangra De Cristo Mountains...it was stunning! I love aspens, what is your favorite fall tree?
