Dear Woods Coffee,

Thank you for being my morning staple and approved addiction. I am a monster without you!

Dear Oatmeal,

Thank you for having the perfect amount of maple and brownsugar. You offer the perfect amount of goodness to my belly and compliment my frozen berries like no one’s business 🙂

Dear VS Boots,

What did I ever do without you? You are the most comfortable shoes I own and make my outfits complete!

Dear Sweet Baby Jesus,

Thanks for loving me more today. I don’t deserve it….really… but I accept it and am forever grateful.  Thanks for your many blessings and for allowing me another day to know you!

These are a few of my favorite things…

So after blogging our RV trip for the month of July, many people were gracious enough to affirm my “blog writing skills”…apparently I have some, thus the beginning of this blog. I have to admit that I am a blog reader junkie! Some people have the coolest blogs and I have been so addicted to reading them. They too have inspired me to try this blog world out. I beginning a new chapter of my life and am journeying (sp?) into some new adventures and feel no better way than to blog about them. Hope you all enjoy 🙂
