{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.

{Where Did Christmas Go?}

It seems that Christmas has come and gone and in a blink of an eye all the festivities are over! Christmas reminds me a lot like a wedding. All the planning, buying, preparing and POOF! But just as with a wedding the memories sure are sweet.  Remember my corner chair in my kitchen? I sure have enjoyed decorating it.  I realized that with all the Christmas activities that I had not shared with my blogging friends my Christmas decor. Just a word of WARNING ...lots of pictures but some sweetness happened at Christmas for our family.  I found this sweet picture of a red truck on line and bought the file so I could add my own wording. I made an 8x10 picture and framed it for my kitchen.  Don't you just love my new salad/dessert plate? Simple tablescape but oh so fun.  It was fun creating this fun tablescape this year and the red truck was actually a cookie jar.  This cute dish sure held a lot of goodies over the holidays. 

{Ornament Exchange}

I love participating in exchanges or swaps and I have no clue how our sweet Stephanie from The Enchanted Rose pulls them off like she does! All I know is GOD BLESS HER because I have been in charge of a few of these on a much smaller scale in the past and I can assure you it's a great undertaking. Stephanie does it with grace and I am so thankful for her.  https://theenchantingrose.blogspot.com/ I was so surprised by when my ornament arrived with other goodies from Denise Painter from  http://daneesey.blogspot.com/ Not only did she peg me out with the ornament that fits my kitchen theme this season but also lovely dish towels that I could not have hand picked them any better! AMAZING at how the colors and style went right along with my theme this year for my kitchen.   I absolutley love the snow flake. Aren't these dis h towels the cut est? And they go so well with my Red truck dish towel .  Yummy teas and oh the best pure can
