June~July, Who Knew???



Are we really heading into mid-July?  Where did June go? Wasn't it just May? Is Christmas really just 167 days nearby?

That's the spin, folks...I've literally lost my breath looking back over the past 7 weeks...

A much anticipated Vine of Grace spiritual retreat at our Parish ~


Hoping with all our hearts to get our little Alice to use a cart ~ (it didn't work)

 Celebrating our goddaughter's 7th Birthday ~

A trip to Orange County for an art retreat ~

Learning new techniques ~


Honoring the best father I could have chosen for my children ~  at Hacienda del Sol ~

Online retreat classes and new jewelry created ~









 Faithbooking with some awesome ladies ~
 A-Z Lunch for "D" at Dakota Cafe and a birthday celebration for Nancy ~


This month I'm thanking God for ~

::family in my life every day
::friendships forged in love
::my faith which continually nourishes my spirit
::comfort during these "dog days of summer"
::a new iced tea maker
::all my docs who take care of my health needs
::medical tests reaping healthy reports

I'm currently reading ~

::Loving My Actual Life
::2Timothy
::The Infinite Tenderness of God
::Light a Penny Candle

Looking forward to ~

::a new look
::another art retreat and mother/daughter getaway
::leading a scripture passage at Faithbooking
::brunch with Lee from Up With People!
::a new bathroom for the "man cave" 

Have a beautiful July and stay safe ~

What a busy bee you have been Karen! I adore the jewelry. Your sweet Alice is a heart breaker. My doxie boys have had back issues from time to time. I hope you find a solution.
