Winner of Stamp-a-Scene & an Update

First off, a HUGE thank you to everyone who entered! I was blown away to see 640 entries for this giveaway & wish I could've given more than one prize away. BUT I enjoyed being able to do this and plan to host some more giveaways in the future with another one coming before Christmas, so stay tuned!

Thank you all for sharing something you are looking forward to this Christmas. I enjoyed reading what each of you posted and it seemed a common theme revolved around friends & family. And to those who mentioned new babies coming (and fostering), congrats to you on those new, precious lives! Also, a  big welcome to the new followers joining me here in my little corner of the web.

I sent you an email. :)

I realize it's been awhile since I've gotten caught up around here. I had started the Capturing Your Grief project during Pregnancy & Infant Loss awareness month last month but didn't get a chance to finish it in time.  I had some up & down days with grief, my twins turned 13 & had a birthday party/sleepover complete with an RV parked in our driveway as "their" place for the night, I took 200 portraits to edit/proof for our homeschool co-op yearbook and just dealing with some other things around here. Life happens, so it goes.  One thing I've learned since Noah died is to just take things one day at a time, after all, isn't that what the Bible tells us?

 "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."- Matthew 6:34 

"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?" -Luke 12:25-26

It's my hope to get back into posting a bit more often again now. I've got some new recipes to share I've recently tried, some cute pictures of the kids and even some link-ups I'd like to host. I also look forward to hearing from you, what you are cooking for Thanksgiving/Christmas, special traditions you have, etc.

"By God’s grace, beauty so often rises from sacrificial love."
