When November Comes...

Old Tom Turkey runs!!!  This was a favorite little jingle the girls learned in elementary school and always loved singing it this time of year!

Not only has November been really busy, it's also a shorter month. No sooner have I gotten my act together for Thanksgiving, then Christmas is peeking around the corner. YIKES!  But I digress...

Here's the November scorecard:

Holiday Trunk Show - gosh, I love having these trunk shows! I get to visit with some of the sweetest friends and most loyal clients, in the world.  This year, old high school friends Jo-Ann, Marie, Candy and Bob traveled down from Phoenix to spend the day with me.

~ Erik visits from NYC - my youngest brother broke away from his busy schedule to share a sweet weekend with us.  Lots of giggles, teasing, and reminiscing added up to 3 days of great fun.  We cheered on our Wildcats at the AZ - CO football game. Go Cats!

~ Faithbooking - seven of us wrapped up our Bible illustrations for 2016.  We'll meet for a Christmas potluck in December and look at what 2017 has in store for this faithful group of ladies. 

~ G Lunch - Nancy and I enjoyed our G lunch at Guadalajara Grill and also celebrated my upcoming birthday.

~ Date Nights - The Girl on the Train, U of A football, "Mamma Mia"

~ December Daily - 28+ foundation pages are completed and awaiting December joys to unfold.

~ Jewelry - a special commissioned piece for a 20th anniversary ~ garnets, Peruvian opals, pearls, and a vintage brooch.

~ Reading - daily Scripture, Dear and Glorious Physician

The last two weeks will bring more Birthday celebrating with family and friends ( this year I also get to celebrate with Old Tom Turkey!), a very special new volunteer project, getting the Christmas dishes down and the everyday dishes stowed away, and beginning the Christmas decorations for our home.

I won't even get into what's on my planner for December, but I'm striving to find heart in every magical and joyous moment!

Have a blessed and safe Happy Thanksgiving and I hope to see you next month!
