A Look Back at 2013 (Plus Top 25)

Top 25 Viewed Posts During 2013 | Times of reflection can be so valuable. When you're in the thick of things, you don't see too much progress. But when you step back, say at the end of a year, and take a look -- wow! You can see how far you've come, even in the simplest of things, and how much God has done. Right at this moment, looking back on 2013, I feel awed and grateful for the blessings and progress in all kinds of things, both personal and professional. | GNOWFGLINS.com

Times of reflection can be so valuable. When you’re in the thick of things, just trying to meet your daily deadlines and keep up with everything, you don’t see too much progress. But when you step back, say at the end of a year, and take a look — wow! You can see how far you’ve come, even in the simplest of things, and how much God has done. Right at this moment, looking back on 2013, I feel awed and grateful for the blessings and progress in all kinds of things, both personal and professional. I am also very, very excited for 2014.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Square

Today in the U.S. we’re celebrating Thanksgiving. Though we give thanks daily for the many blessings God gives our family, it feels right to take extra special thought and care to name and reflect on the good gifts that God gives. You are among those gifts! Also in this post, a Thanksgiving gift for you!

Good morning! I’m back to share our week in photos, and I’m sharing a resource that’s coming up for those of you who are interested in food blogging — either getting started or getting better at it. It’s the Food Blogger Online Summit on November 2 and 3 and right now there’s a HUGE early bird discount on tickets. The rest of this post contains photos from our Fall Garden clean up. What’s going on with you?

Good morning! I’m excited to be back with a “This Week” wrap-up after missing last week due to computer issues and just being plain tired. In this week’s photo round-up, a homeschooling milestone, what God orchestrated perfectly, an impromptu visit to Vanilla Jill’s Scoops and Soups in Eugene, the cookies my daughter is making, and our beautiful bell pepper harvest. What’s going on with you?

This Week: Our Tomato Grew a Nose

IMG_2983-1

And it seems like Fall is officially here. Yesterday began the rain. It feels a little dreary, to be honest. We all felt got tired in the afternoon from the overcast skies (no matter how thankful we are for the rain). Once again, I’m in the thick of running the Ultimate Survival Bundle so I didn’t take many pictures. Actually, I didn’t take any. ;) The sole picture this week is courtesy of my daughter — and it’s a great one. You and your kids will get a kick out of it!
