Twenty years ago today, my darling took a knee and asked me to marry him.  Twenty years later, I would still say yes.  I can't imagine sharing this journey with anyone else.

My friend had a birthday last week.  I made her pumpkin butter (SO yum!) and dressed up the jar a smidge:


Pumpkin from Studio G and the 'word ring' assembled by me on my Just Rite stamp.

CAS-ual Fridays: CFC115 asked for fall colors and at least one leaf.  I think this sweet PI fits the theme.  Mmmm, caramel apples!  I am so ready for boots, chunky sweaters, and caramel apples.

One of our church's staff members is celebrating 30 years in her post, Director of Children's Ministry.  She's always smiling and loving on all of us (even us big kids), so a cheery card to thank her for her dedication was in order.
