I love that our backyard looks like this right now.
The overcast skies.
The changing leaves.
Super green grass.
Fall is here.
I also love that I'm able to take this picture.
Dave got me a new lens for my birthday that replaces the old one Ashlyn broke.
Thanks favorite husband.
Also, Kim vlogged. Go look.
She wants me to vlog, too.
That won't be happening.
I have self-diagnosed clinical vlogophobia.
this darling little family parked their RV in front of the house over the weekend.
They left on Sunday afternoon.
Our driveway is empty but our hearts are full.
Lauren, the mama and I became friends via our blogs last year.
And as a faithful reader, I knew we would be different.
She and her family are mostly organic herbivores.
While I could very well cease to exist without the tangy aftertaste high fructose corn syrup gives my ketchup.
And my youngest sometimes eats My Little Pony fruit snacks for breakfast.
They don't watch much, if any, TV.
My oldest sometimes watches My Little Pony for breakfast.
She travelled across country with a no media flip phone.
I can't travel to a neighboring town without my smart phone.
She home schools.
While it would be easy to feel the need to change the way we live.
Pretend we were something we were not.
Feel insecure about our choices.
I never felt that way.
Because we have Jesus in common.
She is my sister in Him.
And that commonality outweighs any difference.
We miss them already.
Are you baking? Are you crafting?
Remember this Thursday is the first PinterTest Kitchen linky party!
I hope you will participate.
I think it will be fun.
Here's a sneak peek at what I've been working on today.
Oh and here's the button.

Can't wait to see what we've accomplished together!
