My Cup Runneth Over...

Two wonderful honors bestowed upon me! Earlier this month, my application for the Daughters of the American Revolution was approved. I get my national number in October! A friend of mine encouraged me to do it, and I am sure glad she did. I feel like it is a small way that I can honor the sacrifices and courage of my ancestors.

And then this little beauty came along!

Many thanks to LindaJo. Linda pointed out that I have been a little quiet this summer, which is true. She has made me remember how important my bloglife is to me, and what powerful friendships there are out there in blogland! Linda Jo's blog is a must-stop-by, and I am so grateful that she tossed me this joy for my journey!
So here are some other places you must visit - there are so many, it is impossible to choose. Like trying to decide which of your children you like best! But here goes. I will try and point out some new friends that I haven't mentioned before ~

Vintage Flair ~ this woman knocks my socks off, and she does it with kids and a job!
Anahata Katkin ~ words can't describe. Just stop by and you'll see what I mean!
A Cottage Industry ~ the queen of making lemons from lemonade, this lady never stops! There's always something fun goin' on at her place.
Paper Crown Queen ~ the name says it all! Craftiness + history= wow!
Vintage Lilly - she's cute with a capital 'c'!
And of course let's not forget Miss Mendy Texas. You'll feel like you've been hanging out with her at her house each and every time you stop by.
Of course, those are just a few of the lovely ladies that bring inspiration to my day. Here's to you!

and there was just nothing she could do about it."
