autumn wreath hanging on the garden gate
Hello again, friends! It's been four months since I blogged and I imagine many of you have given up on me by now, but for those of you who haven't, thank you for coming back, and a big "thank you" to those of you who emailed me to check in and to tell me you missed my blog posts. I've been missing you as well and this creative outlet quite a bit lately, so I hope to blog more often.
So, I imagine over the course of four months, many new things have been happening in your lives--hopefully good things...
Life has been pretty "usual" around here, but, later, I do hope to fill you in on what's been going on in our world.
For now, I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and share with you a few glimpses of autumn blessings around our home.
It's fall and the garden is aflutter with all types of butterflies--some dressed in shades of autumn.
It's mid-November and tomatoes are still ripening on the vine...
Meet Lucy: She's all grown up!
Meet Dinah: She's a fluffy, diva hen decked out for fall in her gold and black feathers.
Meet Esther: Amelia's favorite.
The other day during school I had Amelia choose four things that she was thankful for and write each thing on a separate leaf for a fall garland (Daddy and I also added what we were thankful for).
Amelia's answers were:
Daddy, Zena (our cat), Jesus, and the chickens.
If you only knew how much she loves our chickens!
I hope all of who are celebrating Thankgiving tomorrow will have a blessed time with family and friends.
Hopefully, I'll be back soon!
