2016's Word of the Year

2016 word of the year- EXPECT- my happiness and contentment is often controlled by my expectations. I have resolved to expect great things but also to keep my expectations within reason so that I do not live in chronic disappointment.

Saving the best for last!

I promise that this is the last wedding photo....for today! I saved this one for last because so far this is my favorite.

$19.95 to start your own business?

Dave Ramsey says direct sells are a great way to start your own business. I think the Plexus plan is one of the best I've seen. This offer expires July 7th! 


More wedding pics!

 This is a Lutheran church and was just so pretty in it's own right. Being of the Berean affiliation we don't often see these older churches with the beautiful beams and stained glass windows.

 The bridal party!

The couple's first dance as a husband and wife. This makes my heart so warm because this young woman is a true delight and is very good for my son. She is a very welcome addition to our family.

Wedding Pics!

My oldest son got married this past weekend and I am excited to share a few pictures with you. The photographer happens to be a friend so she was very relaxing to work with and I think she got some great photos.

Just a glimpse of what the church may be like behind those doors.

Their colors were plum and silver and just absolutely gorgeous!

This is one of the cakes. It was sour cream almond and probably the best white cake I've ever eaten. They also had double chocolate, lemon and carrot cakes.

Happy Independence Day!

May we never forget the sacrifices made by the men and women of this country to preserve our independence and freedoms.

Another blogger I like to read

I have been reading Monica's blog at The Homespun Heart for quite a few years now. In fact I first started reading blogs by her and her sister when they used to have swaps. It was a hard time in my life and it was fun to participate in something light and fun.

She has been writing for quite awhile about the word SLOW. Now she is getting ready to publish a book. I'm sure it will be beautiful. I'm sure it will be inspiring. If you are looking for some inspiration in your life this may just be the book. Check out her blog and watch for the announcement.
