About Me

My photo

I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother.  Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing.  Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.

Casa Vieja

My sister-in-law was given the chance to earn extra credit in her Spanish class by attending a dinner at a Colombian restaurant. It's called Casa Vieja.  I  heard we had one in the area, but I didn't know where or how it was, so I was so excited that she invited me to go along. The decor was definitely Colombian, and the food was really good.  We shared a traditional plate called Bandeja Paisa, which included three different kinds of meat, rice, beans, avocado, a sweet plantain (mmm....my favorite), an arepa, and a fried egg.   We also tried an empanada and salpicon (a really yummy fruit drink that's filled with all kinds of diced up fruits).  I don't know that we actually were able to tell what the restaurant is really like because it was filled with three different Spanish classes (making it extremely crowded), but I will definitely go back again sometime.  I heard there's a little Colombian bakery around, too, so now I need to find that and try it out.
