November is such a fun month…not just because it is the month of my birthday, but that is one of the reasons 🙂

I love November because it is the real beginning of Fall. In spite of what the calendar says, I don’t think it’s November until there is a chill in the air every morning. Yesterday, some of my South Carolina friends woke up to SNOW on the ground! Now that is crazy, but oh how I wish I were there. Instead I am enjoying rain and temps in the 40’s.

The leaves are falling fast, the sunsets are more beautiful and almost all the chestnuts have been gathered by my squirrel friends. Today I put away the jack-o-laterns and am enjoying my Fall mantle. And the best part of today? The extra hour of sleep last night!

I got the letters, candles and felt leaves from Grand in Road and all of them were on super sale! They are clearing out their Halloween Haven, but all of these items are perfect for my mantle between now  Christmas.

I’m writing this post from the new app DESK by yo gg llc. Crazy to finally find an app that will allow me to write more and to be more creative in writing. I’m going to try and write every day in November—look out!

Tiny Prints Free Mug

I’m getting one today for my sister!! NOTE: If you want to get the larger mug – the 15 oz one – you can and the code takes $15.99 off your purchase. So I ordered the large one and got it for $4 plus 7.99 for shipping and handling. A great deal!

One of my all time favorite kitchen tools is the Paderno World Cuisine A4982799 Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer
I use it for zucchini spaghetti, sweet potato pasta and a lot of other things. I look like a gourmet cook when I add zucchini noodles to my chicken soup! And it’s a very creative (maybe sneaky) way to get your kids to eat more vegetables! Right now AMAZON has the cutter on sale – almost half off! If you have been waiting to get one – now is the time! It is only $26.42. Get it soon, you never know when the price will change on Amazon.

He is Risen!

Today marks the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As much as I love Christmas, this holiday is the key to my life. Many years ago, I prayed and asked Christ into my heart. At the young age of 16 I heard for the first time how much God loved me. I had never thought about it personally…a love for me! From that moment forward I have lived a very different life. I live and die. He died so I could live!

It all started with a simple prayer and it has led to life well-lived. It began a transformation in my life and heart and it is not over. He holds me in His hand and calls me His beloved. I hope you know He loves you too! Happy Easter.
