About Dana

I'm a dichotomy of blue jeans, pretty jewelry, frugalista, and Southern girl living the simple rural life. I want to live my life holistically, thoughtfully, economically, and most of all gratefully, and encourage other women to do the same.

One of My Favorite Things

These precious little measuring spoons - in the shape of fish - are one of my favorite things for a couple of reasons.
First, they are so darn cute. Look at the measurements marked inside of them.

It's fun to cook with them.

But the reason I like them is that my best friend Jolie gave them to me. And every time I use them, I think about her.

Like when I made pancakes the other morning. Or when I made shrimp dip today.

I hide them from the others in my family. Shhhh....don't tell. They are breakable, and I don't want to take any chances. So sue me.

I think I protect them a little like a girl protects her friend-relationship. It's something just between the two of you that no one else shares. Just a little part of something that's just for you.

Whatever the reason, these always make me smile. Thanks, Jolie.

Hey - - - call your friend today.
