November Happy List - Birthday Month

November is a big month at our home. My husband, Dan, and I have birthdays 6 days apart. Our son, who traveled from out of town, and daughter spent time with us so that made our birthdays extra special. This year, the last of my 50's, I hosted my own birthday party with a few girlfriends. Why wait for a 60th birthday party? We had our nails done and lunch afterwards. It was called a Girlfriend Gratitude Birthday Party because I am very grateful to have these women in my life.

Girls' Weekend in Atlanta - Part 2 - Faith On The Homefront

In my last blog post, I shared with you my trip to Atlanta, Georgia, where I spent a glorious girls' weekend with Becky, Missy and Julie. This blog post is a continuation of the fun times we had where we attended a creative event called Faith on the Homefront, hosted by Rosalyn Sue and Valarie, at Neiman Marcus in the Lenox Mall.

Faith on the Homefront was Rosalyn Sue's 5th annual fundraiser for Operation Stars and Stripes. Operation Stars and Stripes is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting America's military and their families at home and abroad. 

I cannot imagine how much time and effort Rosalyn Sue and Valarie put into planning this wonderful event. When we entered the room, we were simply awestruck by its beauty, and it took awhile for us to take it all in. It was fun snapping photos of every detail while catching up with old friends. This time the theme was Bible journaling which is a very popular thing to do these days.

Girls Weekend in Atlanta - Part 1 - Country Living Fair

I just returned from a fabulous four days in Atlanta, Georgia, with my Southern friends Becky, Missy and Julie. We all met and became instant friends exactly two years ago at an art event called Sweethearts On the Homefront hosted by Rosalyn Sue (I blogged about it here.) During that weekend in 2013, we attended the Country Living Fair at the Stone Mountain Park.

Stone Mountain Park is a gorgeous place to be. You can see the mountain in the distance from the entrance to where the Country Living Fair was held.
