November is here and I really can’t believe it. I almost completely forgot about this little link-up but thankfully remembered to squeeze this in today. I love this link-up with Anne and Jenna each month, mostly because I get to meet and mingle with some amazing bloggers! Be sure to join the party and share all about what you are currently up to!
COOKING| Food that isn’t too good for me. Truthfully, since Whole30 ended I have not been doing well with my eating. We went grocery shopping last night and I was appalled by what was in my shopping cart. Apart from this, I’m making plenty of soup. Potato Soup, Taco Soup, Chili, Lasagna Soup & more! Soup is definitely one of my favorite foods and truly the best cold weather food.
PLANNING | Lots of celebrations! With Thanksgiving, Husband’s birthday, Christmas, and New Year all falling in the next 2 months there is plenty of planning to do. The holidays are especially chaotic trying to figure out where we’re going, when we’ll be there and what we’re doing. We have so much family that we love dearly that we wish we could spend all of our holidays with, but unfortunately tough decisions have to be made. We are trying to get those tough choices out of the way so we can start planning all the fun stuff! Being this is only our 3rd married Christmas, we are still working on establishing our Christmas traditions. What are your favorite?
SMELLING | Various candles and my pumpkin roll wax melts daily! I need to stock up on some more candles and wax melts though. For some reason when it comes to candles and those types of things I never buy them for myself and always just wait until someone gifts me them. I think I might have to slip away to Bath & Body Works and buy some new candles to get me through this winter though!
APPRECIATING | Facebook Groups. I’m involved in a couple groups on Facebook that are made up of some of the most fantastic people. Two of the groups in particular are full of women that love God, but live real relatable lives. I love getting to glean from them as well as share my heart. I’m a bit of a homebody and with working from home I really don’t get many opportunities to head out and meet people. Thankfully social media has provided an awesome way to connect with others all over the world. (Note: I am appreciating a whole lot more than FB groups, I just thought this was a little unique so I decided to share)
ANTICIPATING | 2016 and the many new adventures it will take us on. Husband will be graduating this spring (I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS FINALLY HAPPENING) and that graduation will bring a handful of changes I’m sure. We will begin the job hunt that could take us out of Southern, WV or leave us here to deepen our roots. Job hunting, moving, and just overall big life changes. My worrier’s heart is already stressing out, but overall I am filled with such excitement and anticipation to see what God is going to do on this next adventure. It’s been amazing to see Him work every step of the way and I have faith He will continue to do so.
