happy thanksgiving friends!



i hope you are enjoying good food, good times, and yummy pumpkin pie!




thank you Lord!

give back!



"Say "thank you" to your guests with a favor of a tree planted in their honor (arborday.org offers the service). Present the certificate tied to a fallen or dried leaf twig wrapped in burlap."




i LOVE this idea! what a way to give back to that special someone and to our earth that God so beautifully and wonderfully made! this would be a perfect gift for thanksgiving, birthday, loss, or to welcome a new baby!




give back!

simple woven cones!


i love this picture! those doors are gorgeous! and i love the woven cones! a wonderful change from using a wreath!




here are those same woven cones but in a smaller version! what a simple surprise to put on each place setting! i found these wonderful ideas from martha! she has a little tutorial to show how they are made! i think using burlap instead of the caning would be a great idea!



happy monday!

our day on the farm!




i always love seeing pictures on other blogs of farms and barns!







it actually makes me jealous that i do not live up north!








isnt he cute! i love cows!



















i am so happy with my pictures! i just wish i had gotten more before the sun went down!






this was the second year we went to conner's a-maize-ing acres! it is located in hilliard, florida about an hour from our house! they have animals, haybales, a tractor-hayride, yummy food, and a corn maze! its a very down-home, simple place but that is why i love it! we get to spend the day outside enjoying all of God's beauty! the kids love it and i find it relaxing! we always end the day by rocking in a swing and looking at the stars! i always get a little sad when its time to leave! we look forward to visiting again next year!




have a happy day!

i know i am a little late with these but they turned out too cute to not show off! we have been going to the same "pumpkin patch" (a church) for the past few years! we let them pick out the pumpkin that they will carve! and then mommy picks out one, two, ok six pumpkins and a bucket full of baby pumpkins! i am sure i am not the only pumpkin hoarder! right?



i love pumpkins!

please pray for my friend!

i dont even know where to begin! it has been a horrible week here! i just came home from a memorial service for two children! a brother and a sister who were killed by their father who then took his own life! my friend has had to endure something a mother should never have to endure! i got the call tuesday morning on the way to school and was in total shock and disbelief! i have just been heartbroken! i have just been going through the motions while this has taken over my every thought! but i have to tell you that she is not alone! she is covered in prayer and surrounded by people! lots of people! and she has her faith! her faith in the Lord is the only way she is getting through this! so, please! pray for my friend! my friend dana!



The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit
Psalm 34:18
