Hi friends! It’s been a while, but I am BACK!

I took a break from blogging to fully focus on Her Soul Purpose, my passion project. HSP is still my BABY and my biggest passion, BUT I miss blogging deeply! I have had Blessings & Seasons for a few years now. It used to be over at Blogspot, but moved it to WordPress not too long ago. I will be transferring most of those blogs over here…….eventually, haha.

What can you expect from me moving forward; blogs about faith, marriage, family, friendship, life, Her Soul Purpose updates, virtual assisting tidbits, lots of pics of Holly our beautiful dog, probably some fashion, health and food. Basically, a little of everything! This blog has always been just all things Cryssie. You will also start to see fun updates on fixer upper farming fun (hubby and I are on the search for one in the south). I’m excited to be back at it and hope you will join me as I tell you all about life’s different blessings and seasons.

**If you are a blogger in Oklahoma, Texas or Arkansas join the Bloggers of Faith FB Group!!! I would love to see ya in there and build community with you!

Appetizer – Edamame and Himalayan Pink Salt sprinkled on top

Ingredients:

Edamame has some awesome health benefits, and that’s why I chose this appetizer for my hubby to eat while he waited on a delicious dinner to be completed!! It has protein, fiber, various amino acids and low levels of healthy fat. It is a great source of various minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc!

Hubby and I really enjoyed this dish! It was delicious and we felt great afterwards. It is important to me that we eat clean and feel great after meals. This meal did not disappoint! Ginger is great for the digestive system and that is why I chose to create a ginger dish! (Disclaimer: I am not a certified nutritionist or doctor)

I hope you enjoy this meal! Feel free to tag me or send me pictures if you decide to make this recipe! cryssie@hersoulpurpose.org
