We thank you for taking the time to visit our blog.

My husband and I are a young, growing, Christian, military family. My husband is a Captain in The United States Marine Corps. I am a former Elementary school teacher. We are first time parents to a beautiful little two year old boy, with twin boys on the way! I am a stay at home Marine wife, who loves to bake, cook, sew and craft! I enjoy being a Domestic Engineer. The purpose of this blog is to document the story of our life and adventures as they take place.

We are honored to be serving our country and ask for prayer in our upcoming adventures. We have been blessed tremendously, and thank God everyday for all he has given us!

Making Jam and Canning

The empty jam jars before we started.

The ingredients to make your own jam!

Boiling the lids and jars

The yummy blueberries I hand picked

Here I am mashing up the blueberries

Boiling down the blueberries along with other ingredients

About to fill the jars with our organic homemade jam

The jars just after we filled them and boiled them with their lids on.

The jam is canned and ready to eat!

The final product and the fruit of our labor!!! (No pun intended)

About a week ago or so my friend Megan said she would teach me along with some friends how to make blueberry jam ( from the blueberries we picked a few weeks prior) and can it ourselves. I was so excited at this idea that I jumped at Megan's offer! We all had so much fun! Megan was kind enough to volunteer her house and her day to the jam!!
