Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

I'm keeping it simple this week.

Congratulations on your senior year! What a great accomplishment! You should be so proud of yourself.

I saw that you went to Baylor. I didn't go to college in TX but I grew up in Houston. A lot of my classmates went on to Baylor.

I hope your kids have a great first day of school!
Oh, and it may be a simple week's menu for you but I bookmarked two of your recipes, so thanks!
