Dear Monday


Dear Monday,
The past 2 weeks have been a whirlwind and I'm afraid this week won't be much different. But it's ok, I totally like it.
This week brings fun things, birthdays (mine!), Thanksgiving, family and friends!
It is definitely the beginning of the BEST TIME OF YEAR!
I am trying to slow down and remember the real reasons for the season, not just the pumpkin pies and peppermint mochas. (Not eaten at the same time of course, yuck!)
Here are a few glimpses as to what the last 2 weeks has been like.
It includes a trip to Branson with friends and a trip to Chicago.
Lunch at one of my favorite places. Neighbor's Mill in Harrison.
It's like a homemade Panera. Yum!
Soup in a bread bowl- yes please!
We got to stay at an AMAZING cabin in Branson that some dear friends own.
It was beautiful and stocked with every comfort of home to make for a really cozy stay.
The views from the deck were gorgeously breath taking.
I really just wanted to let all that beauty soak in and reall absorb how blessed we felt by the kindness of our friends for letting us stay there and making our trip really special.
A little morning coffee on the deck with my sweetie.
And a cookie of course.
Cookies for breakfast while on vacay are totally acceptable right?
This was a sign in the cabin.
It's perfect! " You had me at woof!"

My adventuresome, nature loving hubby decided to take a little hike down the bank and near the water.
To be honest, I didn't want to at first.
But he encouraged me to step our ot my comfort zone and I was so glad I went along.
It was a beautiful morning!
Normally this would all be underwater, but due to a few dry seasons, we were able to walk all the way around the ridge.
And while we were in Chicago visiting my grandparents, we snuck off to Starbucks for a little cake pop and coffee date.
So last week I was not around a computer or internet and my sweet friend Beth did a guest post for me and a giveaway!
Did you see that delicious recipe she shared?
And how about that scarf she is GIVING AWAY TO ONE OF YOU!? :)
She is one talented gal!
Go check out that post HERE and you have until the end of this week to comment or email me for a chance to win that scarf.
Happy Monday!
