I’ve taken quite a long hiatus from blogging recently for no other reason than there has just been a life worth living. I go back and forth between loving to blog and feeling weighed down by it. Because I love it and because I want to do it for myself, I never want to feel guilty for not blogging.
The last six to eight weeks have flown by. I cannot believe November is already over. Where does the time go?
In October I had the opportunity to travel to South Africa for work. I still want to write about my travels and wrote a fun article about a hike I took on Ker & Downey’s blog here. I’m hoping to write more about my trip in the coming weeks.
Matthew and I also painted the guest bathroom. I promise photos of the bathroom are coming soon.
We spent my birthday surrounded by some of my favorite people- wine tasting in Fredericksburg with the Nances followed by “Friendsgiving” and Catchphrase with a group of friends and a family birthday party. It couldn’t have been better.
For thanksgiving we were in Bellville for four glorious days. The Nances spent a few days with us which was so fun to introduce them to my family and some of our more crazy traditions which include a white tiger needlepoint and a gold glitter moose antler.
And now we are in the Christmas season. Just this weekend alone there is a Christmas concert and slumber party for our high school girls, preparing Christmas boxes, Christmas tree shopping, and the Redeemer Christmas party. It will be a lovely and full weekend preparing my heart for the Christmas season.
