Thank you Lord for another healthy miracle! Going to bed feeling extremely happy and blessed!
Another little one was born while we were home…Miss Grace Goodie Harris was born on April 1st. She is the daughter of our dear friends Tuff and Mary! They wanted to wait to see what they were having until the delivery, which made their entire pregnancy so exciting to me! I thought for sure Mary was going to have a boy lol…! We got to meet Grace and she is just so sweet!
We’ll keep you updated on the move. Right now we’re just waiting to get in there. We got furniture for a few rooms ordered, but for the most part we are taking it slow. It surely isn’t cheap outfitting an entire home so we are doing the essentials first and the rest will come with time. Things like area rugs and end tables completely overwhelm me right now! We bought a bedroom set, couch set, dining room set, and desk and chair… and I couldn’t be happier with our selections! I’ve found that surprisingly Patrick and I have very similar tastes in furniture, which is a relief! We both seem to gravitate towards the same pieces…which in most cases is good for our relationship, but bad for our bank account eek! It’s been fun though…we’ve enjoyed this layer of homeownership 🙂
More to come in the coming weeks 🙂

July was a full-packed month for me. It seemed I was always on the go! An interesting party I went to early on in the month was my Aunt Donna’s divorce party…lol. Believe me, I know it’s not a laughing matter but we sure did have fun turning lemons into lemonade 🙂 My Aunt Donna and Uncle Jack had been together for over 20 years before deciding to call it quits. It was shocking news to swallow. After months of separation and heartache, my aunt decided she needed to get out of their home and leave all the memories behind. So she packed up her essentials and took her dog Bailey, and together they moved to a new apartment in the city. My mom (Donna’s sister) was a big help in getting her situated. When my mom saw her sister could use some new stuff she decided to throw her a little shower and invite only her closest family and friends.
Aunt Donna got a ton of great stuff to help her get on her feet. I’ll give my mother the award for the most creative gift lol. She wrapped up about 30 different cleaning products and wrote a poem to her sister using each product name in the passage. Example: “One day in the future you’ll meet a big, brawny man who will fill your life with joy” – then gave her a package of Brawny paper towels and Joy dish soap. We all laughed at some of the stuff she came up with, it really was a cute idea! She ended it with this outdoor throw rug – incase Jack should ever come knocking at her new door…lol!
And the cake matched the cookies! It too tasted as good as it looked! It had an almond batter topped with a buttercream frosting…delicious!
