Connecting the Dots

For a while now I have felt a stirring in my heart. It’s been subtle, seemingly random, yet has been increasing in intensity. I am the type of person who feels every emotion pretty intensely and for the past couple of months, I have felt the Lord pressing the following thoughts and feelings on my […]

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 […]

The Table

Today, I want to share about something that I am SO glad I said “Yes” to. Monthly Dinner Club. Mickey and I had recently changed churches, and in an attempt to establish relationships with some women of this church, I quickly said yes to this.

The Lost Art of a Hand Written Letter

There is nothing better than receiving fun mail. I don’t care who you are, exactly zero people have frowned when finding a pretty letter addressed to them. There is nothing better than thumbing through junk mail, only to find something personal. I have always been someone who has appreciated hand written gestures. To prove this, […]

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. Don’t get me wrong… I love a beautiful table setting and maybe (okay, probably) guilty of the […]

Sincerely, Evelyn

In a world full of Pinterest perfect photos and unreal expectations about the nature of home, I thought I would share the image of the home that I believe God is pleased with. For a while I have struggled to find the right words to describe my sentiment on our home and what I believe God […]

Re-examine Your Normal

I recently had the privilege of watching my not so little brother play what was his last tournament of baseball. While I have always had an appreciation for the sport, I have never been a radical fan. We won’t go into details… but my husband had to explain to me what “hit by a pitch” meant. […]
