Rum Cake and Lipstick

As promised on my Instagram (Follow @zinnialaneblog ), today I am sharing my Grandma Patsy’s infamous Rum Cake Recipe. It is moist (sorry if you don’t like that word… I don’t know what else to use to describe it) dense, sweet, and slightly crispy. If you are a dessert person, you will definitely want to give […]

Unapologetic Hospitality

This year I feel like my heart has been encouraged to explore what it looks like to show authentic hospitality. I believe this began as a mental “revolt” if you will, against unrealistic expectations set by Pinterest and Instagram.

Lofty Things

One of my goals this summer was to get our loft “catch all” space converted to a functional home office.
