I was thrilled when Tara asked me to be a part of her 12 Signs of Christmas in August.  It was so easy to say yes.  Don’t you LOVE the new STAR OF WONDER sign?!   Tara and I have been blogging buddies for a long time and I’ve loved watching her home-based business grow over the past couple of years.  She and her husband Andy do such a professional job on these signs and I was giddy when mine came in the mail this week!

And of course, she’s being so generous and offering a discount for my readers from now through Nov. 15th.   You visit her shop and use the coupon  code  GRACE to receive 10% off any sign in the shop.


So, hop on over and see all their amazing work!

(And please don’t judge my canvas.  It’s a work in progress and my therapy as I adjust to new days without my girls.  I’m  not even close to finished but I’ve so enjoyed working on it this week!)

Some of my favorite bloggers are participating in Tara’s 12 days of Christmas in August, so go make some new blog friends!

A big, hearty thank you for all your prayers and kind words during this transition for us.  I’m feeling much better today and am working on some fun projects to share with you in my Christmas e-course.  I’ve chosen Preppy Texas Christmas for my theme, so follow me on Pinterest as I search for Pin-spiration in stripes and plaids and antlers!  I’m also planning a fall shindig at my house so I’ll let you know more about that when I get it all planned.  Hope all your transitions are going well, too.

Also, if you don’t have your dinner plans yet and haven’t tried my cheese tortellini soup, give it a try.  We had it for dinner this week and it never fails to be one of the easiest, healthy dinners in my menu rotation!  I linked it up with Thrifty Thursday!


Mucho love,

  1. I can feel the uptick in your spirit, Edie. So good!! xoxo That canvas is nothing to fear for judgement. It’s really vibe-ish and beautiful. What a great therapy. : ) thanks for the blog introductions! Happiest Thursday ever to you ma’am.

  2. I’ve never a part of any kind of joint blog thing before, but who could resist Tara’s amazing signs? Not me! Love the words on yours. I love the way Christmas songs tell God’s story. And as a Texas girl {who recently moved to Tennessee}, I can’t wait to see what your take on Texas Preppy is! xoxo!

  3. Well done girl!! I love how you mix things… it’s such a gift. It was so hard for me to jump from homeschool to public and people that knew me and had never homeschooled didn’t get it at all. I’m pretty sure they just thought I was nuts because I’d drop them off and then kind of stand there lost for a few minutes while I tried to figure out what a run with out constant interruptions was like, or a day without a list of things we had to get through… it was weird. We’re about to begin our third year doing public, and because our son has been diagnosed officially with Asperger’s this summer, I’m betting I’ll be there a lot more so who knows what this next year will look like. Hang in there and enjoy sweet lady!

  4. I don’t even know how I finished up right here, however
    I assumed this publish was once good. I do not recognize
    who you’re but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger in the event you are not already.
