About Us


Photo courtesy of my sister-in-law, Kathy

Welcome!  I’m Erica, and this is my little spot in cyberspace where I can reflect upon the blessings in my life and share the fun and the trials of busily raising two sweet boys and a baby girl with my husband.  You’ll find a collection of various things here.  Crafts, food, faith-based projects, a bit of rambling.  I love to share photographs and dreams–all things under our catch phrase of “growing together.”  In the beginning, that’s all it was.  I simply wanted family and friends–far and near–to see what we are up to as we grow together in faith, in knowledge, and in love.

In January 2013, I decided that Warm as Pie needed a facelift and a greater sense of purpose.  It needed to become something more than a personal blog.  I want it to also be a place for celebrating family as a concept, not just the story of  my family.  I’ve always wanted Warm as Pie to BE good, but now I’m hoping that it can DO good.  In that vein, I will be posting information about adoption, foster care, and orphan advocacy each month.  And I hope to also feature different families from time to time to highlight how we can be “growing together” in new and exciting ways.

I hope that you like the changes you see here and decide to become a regular visitor.

I can be reached at warmaspiedesigns@yahoo.com.  I would love to hear from you.

  1. Hello, what a nice site. Thanks for being an assest to our family. From the moment I met you I knew that you & your hubby were true soul mates. I will enjoy visiting this especially when I am having a “blue” day. I did send a lenthy message but I did not put my e-mail and it wiped everything I had said out memory is short on days like this. I will have to visit again.

  2. Erica, I finally had some time to read your blog tonight. I enjoyed it very much. I love reading about your wonderful loving family and life. It inspires me. I guess I don’t know as much about the computer as I thought I did, since I cannot give you any information on the Website line. I don’t know the answer. It took me a long time to learn what people were talking about using the word blog.I am trying to learn how to keep up with the times. I don’t email sorority very much, can’t keep up with the emails.
    God Bless You and Your Family, Erica.

  3. So, I had to put my class website, there, our family site (which is super under construction since forever) is http://thekitchins.webs.com

    Im so glad I can re-connect with you now, I totally miss having a great group of friends around me. Since moving to VA life has changed a lot!
