Welcome to December!
I am very excited about this month. Are you? It marks the end to another year. One more month and I will have been writing on this blog for a WHOLE YEAR! Yes, I started this blog January 1st, 2013. It marks a milestone for me and I am more than a little excited. I’m hoping to bring you a wonderful giveaway to mark this anniversary…so make sure to stay with me.
What happened in November? Thinking back I’m having trouble remembering a lot of it. Wow…I must be REALLY tired. No, I remember. I started out the month at a singsperation at friend’s church. We stayed up till 12:30 (well, we were up a lot later, lol) singing and just enjoying some good, old-fashioned music. We had so much fun!
The next two weekends I spent working markets. I started a new line this year of natural products including lip balms, whipped lotions, solid lotion bars, and sugar scrubs (you can find these for sale in my Etsy store!). I made some new friends and I’m looking forward to getting to know some of them better.
Then we were back at our friend’s in the valley for a weekend sleep-over! I enjoyed visiting with the ladies at her church on Saturday morning and then came home in the midst of a snow storm Sunday afternoon. We had such a good time, enjoyed lots of good food, and had some fun crafting together (she made Little Miss the most adorable hair bows!).
This last weekend Little Man got to attend a birthday party with his Auntie who came for a visit. We enjoyed lunch together on Sunday and she took some amazing pictures of the family in the afternoon (with lots of wonderful snowflakes making their appearance). I can’t wait to share those pictures with everyone. I only got to see a couple of the ones she took but they were GOOD!
We had three guest posters on here, talking about being a blessing to others. I really enjoyed their posts and I hope they encouraged you as well and gave you some ideas on how you can be a blessing to those around you, especially those who are struggling with things in their lives.
I also brought you a TON of book reviews. I know, there were a lot. I don’t get as much time to read anymore so it takes me a while to get through books. I banned myself from reviewing any more until I got through the stack I had. And, guess what ? I did! Yeah! Well, I have one more to bring you this month. It’s one book review that you won’t want to miss!
I’m bringing some more posts in our “Make Me a Blessing” series. This month I’ll be sharing some practical lists of things you can do to bless people, especially during this season of giving.
Other than that I think this blog is going to be pretty quiet. I’m planning on doing lots with Little Man and I have church activities and family fellowships to plan and enjoy. I hope you all enjoy this season and take time to remember what it’s all about.
Happy Monday, Everyone!
