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.
When I tell you that I almost burst into tears when I received this book, it’s the truth. A few weeks ago, I went out with my friend Nikki. It was after work and we were going to catch up over dinner. When she walked in, we hugged, then she handed me something.

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.
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.
Greetings, y’all! I haven’t had a chance to really supplement my fall wardrobe but a few Saturdays ago, I was able to remedy that. My girlies and I had a shopping date. After a quick run to the mall and lunch, we visited Old Navy. I knew I’d find something. We all did!
I usually shop by myself – less stress. But this trip was fun. I think with all the laughter and silly moments, it took the edge off.
But anyway, let’s get into what I was able to find:
