Our Daily Blessings! (:

Hey Ya’ll! I hope that you’ve had a good week. Here’s a few blessings from the past week that I’d like to share with you.

1) The peach trees have arrived

Peach Trees_with textOne of the things that we loved (and the only thing we miss) at the old house is the fruit trees that we had planted. We had five trees in total; three peach and two pear. We worked together to plant them and enjoyed watching them grow and produce fruit.

Live Plants_with textSadly, this house didn’t have any fruit trees on the property when we bought it but it will tomorrow! 🙂 We ordered 5 peach trees and they came today! We plan on planting them tomorrow. I’m a lot more excited than I thought I’d be at the prospect. But, hey, it’ll only be few years and we’ll have some homegrown peaches!!

2) Exciting plans to look forward to in the coming weeks…

With the end of October being upon us (how did that happen?!?!?) that means that the holidays are just around the corner. And you know what that means? It means that there’s all sorts of fun and festive things to do around town. We have already started planning to attend a few free Christmas events in our area and consulting cookbooks for some new holiday recipes. I’m looking forward to enjoying this Holiday season and all of the festivity along the way!

I want to remind you that you don’t always have to spend loads and loads of money to enjoy this time of the year. Look for fun things that are free or low cost. Remember that memories and fun times with family can’t always be bought. Most times it is what you make it. If you determine that you’re going to have a good year and be festive with what you have then you will. (And most times, kids never remember the super expensive things that you do to celebrate. They often times remember the little things..)

3) A fire in the fireplace

I know that we’ve only had it for less than a year but I really don’t know how we didn’t have one sooner. The warmth and warm glow that it gives makes the Christmas season just a bit more cozy and the winter just a bit more bearable. I look forward to the time when we are able to have fires everyday! All that wood that we’ve been cutting over the summer has been worth it!!

What are some of the blessings that you have noticed in your life this past week? I’d love for you to share them in the comments below! Have a great weekend!

Until next time,
