Sometimes as a blogger I wonder if I chose the wrong “career”.

I am really not meant to sit alone, in an office, behind a computer.

I am a people person – and a talker (sometimes too much!).

When I write a post – sometimes I hear crickets. You feel like saying, um, “is this thing on?”.

But not this week – this week I feel especially blessed.

The true and genuine kind words I read from so many of you this week truly touched my heart. Seriously, people I have never met – had the kindest words. We were prayed for, I was encouraged and my heart feels so blessed.

When I let you know we were okay after the storm, you were thankful and when I let you know our good news you cheered.

And suddenly I wasn’t alone, at my desk, behind my computer.

So, since there are no better words, I say thank you.

Okay, so enough with the serious stuff – lets have some fun today!

I thought I would share some of the fabulous stuff I have been seeing out in blogland!

First, Megan of Megan Brooke Handmade. She is the sweetest and crazy talented too (although, being around her at Haven did make me feel a bit, ahem, old!).

This week she shared her beautiful Pallet Antler Wall Art Tutorial

Laura from Top This Top That (also a super sweet, fun and talented lady!) shared this stunning and easy Fall Centerpiece.

Now, don't get angry with me for talking Christmas – but how fun is this Mini Pom Pom Trim Christmas Tree from Ashley from Cherished Bliss. Now, I have never met Ashley, but I am sure she is sweet and kind too and we can see that she is talented.

As always, thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend!

P.S. And if you are starting to think Christmas (I know, not trying to rush you or anything) and you like to start shopping early….

Stop by The Old Post Road and check out her beautiful paintings. They would make a lovely gift.
