Family Update and Memorial Weekend Sales

Happy Memorial Weekend! I’m so excited that it’s the unofficial start to summer. Bring on the barbecues, popsicles, campfires, watermelon, picnics, and sunshine!

We have already had a pretty amazing weekend. We added a family member to our family yesterday. Let me introduce you to Claire Lauren Baas. She has already stolen our hearts. There is something about a baby that just makes the world a little brighter.

I’m going to be spending as much time as I can with her this weekend, but I’m also going to do a little online shopping. The sales are too good to pass up.

I need to find some summer styles to get ready for 21 Days of Summer Fashion that starts next Friday. It’s always a fine line because so many things will sell out before I get them styled.

I’m also looking for home decor right now since we recently moved. I’m looking for some rugs, pillows and some outdoor furniture. This is a good time to purchase these items.

Beauty For the Heart~~Memorial Day falls this Monday, May 28, and is a day set aside to honor our nation’s military heroes. The men and women who have died to protect American liberty whether in wars or in service to our country.

For Christians, this day also serves as a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that was paid for our spiritual freedom. Jesus Christ willingly bore our sins on the cross so that all who believe in Him might be reconciled to Him and have eternal life.

John 15:13 says, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

This Memorial Day, take a moment to remember those who lost their lives so that we could enjoy life, peace, justice, and the freedom to enjoy the blessings given us by God.

Have a blessed day!

I was pregnant with my now 8 year old daughter while I was caring for my father with cancer. He passed away 7 months before she was born so sadly never met her. But the comfort of holding her during those months of mourning were Divine intervention for sure.

For some reason your emails are now coming to my work email instead of my personal one. The only thing I can think of is when I typed in my address to consent to receive your emails on May 24th, maybe I accidentally typed my work email by mistake?? Is there a way to change it back to my personal email? Thank you and enjoy that new grandbaby!
