Do you have your coffee cup? I do!

This week’s Coffee Break has us looking forward to Spring! And since we “sprang forward” this weekend with Daylight Savings Time, what could be more appropriate?

Let’s start our week together! Just click the photos or links to read more!


I just know that you’re going to love this week’s how-to for hosting a dessert bar. It’s such a great idea for an easy get-together that everyone loves! And we all know that Spring plays hostess to a bevy of opportunities for getting together- Easter, Mother’s Day, graduations, wedding showers…

And what better dessert to fill your dessert bar with than classic lemon squares with a fresh twist! From the delicate powdered sugar topping to the bright and tart lemon filling, lemon squares are a spring staple.

And last but not least, this week’s encouragement come from author, Leann Guzman (author’s bio below). Leann shares what she’s learned about the words we speak along with her empowering devotional for preteen girls that shows young girls how to be a blessing with their words. If you have a daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin or neighbor, this is not to be missed! Plus, I learned a lot from it too!

Thanks for slowing down, sipping a cup and starting your week off with me!
