life lately

Finally, tomorrow is the official first day of fall and I’ve been doing so much absorbing of media content lately that I just had to share with you. There are a lot of things that change in the autumn but entertainment, shows, and music are also included in that. I get so excited when the […]

Our 11 year wedding anniversary

Wedding Anniversary

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.” 1 Corinthians 13 1 Our beginning was […]

It’s already the month of September and as much as I can’t believe it, even more, I can’t believe that in about a week it’s our 11th year wedding anniversary.

Nora Spaulding: Currently August

August is here, my goodness! I cannot even believe that nearly 2/3 of the year is over already. It feels like it should still be March, April or June maybe, but I’m shocked and bummed because this year hasn’t allowed me to do much physically and just taught me to stay calm and be patient.  […]

I inquired about it, because the ones I had ordered for 2020 just weren’t what I was thinking and weren’t fulfilling my needs. She told me it was the Happy Planner, and she explained how they […]
