and we're back...

I know that it has been a few weeks since I have posted on a regular basis. Thank you for the kind emails and all the prayers. I so appreciate them. Things are beginning to calm down a bit and I am working on establishing a new daily rhythm for myself and the family. There are a few more kinks to iron out but for the most part I think I have a basic daily plan in place that will meet my needs.

So what about the blog you ask? Well I am kind of excited about a few things coming up. I have taken in all your comments on what you'd like to see and hopefully in the coming weeks there will be posts that may help and inspire you in your home, especially in the kitchen.

This week my blog will celebrate it's third birthday. I don't know where the time has gone but it sure has been fun. So to celebrate I will be having some fabulous giveaways later this week so make sure you stop in on Wednesday (Oct. 28) to take part in all the excitement. Bring your friends, you won't want to miss it!

For now I share these two images taken this weekend at the Oatlands Estate in Leesburg, VA. What a lovely day filled with sunshine, God's beautiful Fall landscape and wonderful friends. I am rested and ready to go.

Happy Fall Y'all,
