And today is the first day of December – happy December!

Some of them are the ones I mentioned in yesterday’s post, and some are new. 🙂 Let me know if you find any new favorites – or any old favorites!Continue reading

I hope each and every one of you have a lovely day and get to spend it with families, friends, and lots of good food. Thanksgiving always makes me get excited about yummy food, but what’s even more important than yummy food is the opportunity to remember and thank the Lord for all He’s given us.
