just keep counting, just keep counting

So, I have been avoiding blogging lately in an effort to get the right perspective, right priorities... it's not working!  I have not been counting my blessings either, so I want to just focus on what is RIGHT in my life right now!  So here's my re-cap of the last 2 weeks!  Last time I counted some of my blessings, I was in the middle of some time away with my sweet hubby (read more about him, here).  so here are some other things I enjoyed on our mini-vacation along with a recap of the last 2 weeks...

getting closer to 1000 with Ann Voskamp...


  1. Yeah for receiving your copy of One Thousand Gifts. I still haven't read it yet either. I am completely freaked out by the black bear sniffing out your chicken coop in broad daylight. I am SO terrified of bears and I can't imagine having one come waltzing up in my backyard. I would never let the kids outside again! Not really, but it would make me awfully nervous! I love the look of that apple dumpling made my mouth water. Great list of gifts, but I am so sorry about your cat. We have a cat and I can't imagine him not being there. I'm sorry.

  2. sounds like you have an interesting life. A bear in your backyard- awesome!


I would love to reply to your comments, but I can't unless you have an email available in your profile!
