Heidi Dixon Kwon lives in Erie, PA with her hunky husband and feisty Beagle. As a hobby — and for sanity — she writes about her processes in her blog, inkandalabaster.blogspot.com, and aspires to be a signpost for others to seek identity in Christ. Heidi loves sweet coffee, tans easily, is a morning person and can eat her weight in olives.
I WAS CRYING in the corner of my new kitchen when my mom called. "Hi Umma," I say in the brightest voice I could muster, tightening my vocal chords to curb them from shaking.
THE SWEETHEART TABLE is fashioned just the way it was envisioned and the altar is made in eager expectation. Each carefully arranged table setting saves a place for one. Like the air around freshly fallen snow, it’s quiet.
WE HAD BEEN MESSAGING back and forth for a week before Daniel repurposes a popular and cheesy song lyric to ask if I would be interested in grabbing coffee.
