March felt like it came and left in a hurry πŸ™‚ Although it still seems like Winter around here.Β  Two highlights of our March…

A cabin trip with family… We had not been away in awhile, so it was great!! We were glad our weekend did not end like last year πŸ˜‰ Yes, very glad! πŸ™‚

The other highlight was promoting in my company πŸ™‚ I had worked and prayed for this for awhile, and it all felt like a big hug from God!! The joy of sharing with others, and seeing their lives change, as well asΒ  wanting to give more, and help pay off debt quicker, has been such a driving force in my why!!

And the bonus will be such a huge blessing! πŸ™‚ I am so grateful! We counted down my points I needed, and it was so fun to have the children share in the excitement πŸ™‚ I felt so much love and support!!Some random things…

We have a cardinal friend who flies up to our window every day, and taps on it πŸ™‚ We love watching him!!My babe and I ❀We love this for a quick lunch!! Flatbread, ranch dressing, bacon bits, canned chicken, cheese. So tasty πŸ™‚

Also, this Caramel French Toast is a favorite at our house!And this boy keeps me running πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰Happy Wednesday, friends!!!

Good Times

Thought I’d share a few photos from Labor Day Weekend. We had a wonderful time at the cabin and the lake with our friends. It’s always nice to get a break from the daily grind, and just relax a bit. (Although sometimes when I’m packing and making food, I’m thinking, they had better appreciate all my hard work :))
