Happenings at Home

Hello September and happy Labor Day weekend! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? Grace was finally cleared from her concussion (thank you for your prayers and well wishes) and so of course she has 3 soccer games this weekend so that is what we will be doing. She will be easing back in! But please keep her in your prayers.

Now on to some September feels!

Things I am looking forward to now that it’s September:

  • football
  • sweaters
  • the leaves changing colors
  • mums
  • pumpkins (early)
  • cooler temps
  • more zinnia blooms

This past week flew by! I was busy out in the garden with my zinnias, driving the girls to school, dance, back to school night and even snuck in a fun book club night with my neighborhood gals. We sat around the fire talked, prayed and chatted about all the things. It was just what I needed. We are reading this book and it is really making me think!

Oh and on Thursday Grace went to her first high school football game as an official student! We went too with some friends and ate at a local place before the game called totally 80’s Pizza! It was a fun night and even though her team lost, she had fun and so did we. I don’t know about you but I loved high school and seeing how much Grace loves it too makes us so happy.

Pinch Me Moment

So a few weeks ago my darling mom encouraged me to apply for the Cottages and Bungalows Ambassador search. So I did, and guess what? Last night I heard that I was selected as a top 10 finalist. Wowza. A pinch me moment for sure. You can see the announcement here on their Instagram page and see who the other finalist are. Next step for me is to come up with a DIY project to show off some creativity and then the top 3 will be revealed. Goodness gracious I am just so honored and humbled and honestly still in shock and just giving it to the Lord. I’ll keep you updated on the progress!
