    Holiday Brunch!

    I’ve always enjoyed hosting parties and organizing social events. There’s nothing better than getting everyone together for a good time. I wanted to do something a little different than the party I hosted last Christmas. After a few revisions, I came up with an idea. Brunch! Who can say no to that?  My friends and I love a good brunch during the weekend.

    On Sunday, I had the pleasure of hosting a brunch at City Perch Kitchen & Bar in Pike & Rose.  If you recall, I visited for the first time a few months ago.  The experience was so memorable, I decided to return.

    When everyone is busy with work and family, it’s hard sometimes to coordinate schedules, but thankfully, it all worked out. Lots of laughs and good conversation. It was great because it was a reunion of sorts. Catching up on what’s been happening in our lives this year, being silly. We were even singing – with harmonies too!

    It’s that time again. Finding cards to send to family and friends for the holidays. This is such a great time for me – I love the process, finding the right design, getting my list together.

    In the past, I’ve bought boxes of cards at the physical stores. Nothing wrong with that – it’s a great option. But I like to try new things and generic designs don’t cut it for me.  Last year, I used Vistaprint. This time around, I wanted to try something new.

    Giving Thanks

    Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Thursday to everyone!

    Please take time to remind yourself of the many blessings you’ve received this year.  Sometimes it can be hard to see the good, but I know there’s something. 🙂  No matter how you celebrate – big family event, something small, even if you have to work (bless you!), there is always something to be thankful for.

    I am overwhelmed by how God has loved me, coming through time and again, taking care of me, making ways out of no way. I am truly grateful.

    Fall Decorations and More

    During Fall and Thanksgiving time, do you decorate?  As a child, do you remember the table settings and decorations at your relatives’ house? Did you follow suit once you had your own place? Finding ways to bring the warm and rich colors of the season into your living space can be a challenge, but still rewarding.
