Word for 2017: PURPOSE

Image
Before January completely squeaks by, I wanted to share the one word I've chosen as a motto for 2017.



It may seem a little late in the game, but January as a whole is a contemplative month for me. I like to pray and think about my goals for the year before committing to them, and December is such a busy month I usually don't do it before the new year hits. I mean, there were 54 people in this house over Christmas. Not exactly conducive to deep and pondering thoughts. 😉

For the past few years I have picked a word of the year that I felt the Lord laid on my heart for that year.  My word for 2016 was CHANGE, which came from a preparing of my heart for what I knew would be a year of change! I was facing a new boss, new leadership at church, becoming an Aunt for the first time, and of course by the end of the year voting on a new president.



Change is not something I usually embrace, but I knew 2016 would be a time I needed to learn to do so! And I'm so glad I did, as the year …

Hello and happy Friday! I'm glad to be back to another week of the Weekend Wind-Down party!


You may have noticed I missed the party last week...but I had a VERY good reason! I spent the weekend with a whole bunch of my cousins and aunts, and Samantha from Motivated Days was there too! We got to actually chat about blogging and life stuff in real life...imagine that!




It was a fun weekend of Christmas-movie watching, coffee drinking, shopping and laughing. Much needed before a busy holiday season hits us!

But now, lets get on with this week's party, shall we?

Happy Friday, everyone! Welcome to another week of our blogging party!


This has been a big week, because we saw our first SNOWFLAKES!! Now, if you've been reading this blog any length of time, you know snow is NOT my favourite thing. But we have a little family rule that says the first snowfall brings out the Christmas music! So, even though I wouldn't exactly call what we had a snow "fall", more like a few flakes floating through the air and then melting, that is good enough for me. Christmas music is in full swing now!
But enough of that...lets get on with the party!

Its that time again...welcome to the Weekend Wind-Down Link party!

I don't know about you, but I have been loving this time of the week especially lately, what with all the great fall-related links! Just today I used a link from a recent party and made these mini pumpkin scones that are so good! I also made this super easy breakfast 4 times this week - and up until now I wasn't even an oatmeal person! This party has been so fun, you ladies are so creative and I love learning from you!
