Dear Little Girl | A Letter to My Nieces

Dear Little Girl | A Letter to My Nieces - A Simpler Grace

This letter is dedicated to one of my two nieces, who turns seven years old today.

Dear Little Girl,

Your mom and I grew up sharing the same closet and bathroom when we were little. I can remember braiding her hair and painting her nails and playing together with our dolls and our easy-bake oven. I remember choreographing dance routines to the soundtrack of Dirty Dancing and making everyone in our family turn in their tickets made of construction paper and crayon so they could watch our performance. I remember waking up in the middle of the night and feeling her curled up in bed next to me after she'd had a bad dream. I remember those early days of our childhood. They were magical.

All opinions and views expressed on our blogs are our own, not that of the NFL and/or any of its 32 teams. Any team names, logos or other symbols referenced are properties of their respective organizations. We are just big fans - and we want to share our love for our teams, the game and the food that brings us all together on game day.

With the football season coming to a close, it's time to start thinking about championship game parties and the recipes we will make for them! In celebration, I've joined up with a group of bloggers from all over the country - all of whom are big football fans! - in one final collaboration to bring you football-inspired recipes this season. In August, we shared our favorite tailgating recipes and we met up again in October to share more than 60 team-inspired recipe ideas for celebrating on game day. Today, we are sharing our favorite Superbowl snacks. Click on their links below to join in!

I also wanted to give a big shout out to Susannah from Feast + West and Erin from The Speckled Palate for coordinating this fun blogger collaboration. It took so much time and effort for them to organize and pull this three-post series off with over sixty food bloggers! You gals rock!!

I'm so excited to welcome back Kayla from The Accidental Nomad Life. She shared a Bible journaling process post, here on ASG, last May, and you guys loved it, so I asked her if she'd come back to share another with us and she agreed! Today, she is here to share what she created as inspired by the book of Exodus.
