{I Am Retired Y'all!}

  It sure is a bittersweet time but I am surely looking forward to my adventure with the Lord. I wanted to share a few pictures with my friends. I have received so many phone calls, texts, cards and gifts this week that have just brought tears and joy.  Turning in my office keys of many years was hard! But, Jeremiah 29:11 is surely reminder that God has set the plans for my life and that I will trust.  I only had the blessing of serving alongside Pastor Scott for nearly a year and I pray God's blessings upon him and his family as his journey continues. However, he is a quick learner and learned that I was the BOSS! LOL! The former pastor and his wife that hired me 22 plus years ago even tuned in to the recognition with a video. It melted my heart.

{Living the Good Life} and WINNER of "Gideon book"

Ooh don't you just love pretty nail polish? I do for sure. I have several boxes full of different colors of nail polish so my grandgirl Mallory picked out a few colors and placed them in the basket.

She brought her little foot spa over to my house and she got everything ready for me to lounge my tired footsies in.  And I must say.... I absolutely enjoyed every moment of it too!

She picked a coral color and then she spotted a bottle of sparkles she needed

{Simple Beach Tablescape} and Giveaway!

It's time for a beach tablescape! Well I am going to go ahead and confess that I am more of your mountain kind of gal and in the winter months but there is just something about the beach that calls my name..... I started out with a centerpiece with some mason jars! You just gotta love a mason jar! I actually bought this at AC MOORE and you can use it for so many different things. It came with chalkboard tags to use if you wanted too. Just a few seashells and some flowers and I was good to go.  I love these plates I bought from Walmart. They are so summery looking. Found the cute place mats at the Dollar Tree.  I couldn't believe I found the color of blue I was looking for with the stainless steel flatware at Walgreen's.   And it was on SALE !!!! My kind of purchase! It didn't take me long to come up with a simple tablescape with the pretty blues, greens and yellows. And these goblets will always be my favorite to use. I had to hunt
