Anniversary Trip

I can't believe it has been almost 7 years I have been married. DH and I are in Lancaster, PA for the weekend to celebrate our marriage and to go to an exciting bible fellowship meeting on Sunday.

We arrived late yesterday (Friday) and got settled in our hotel. We relaxed for a bit and then went to the Windmill restaurant so I could have Pork and Sauerkraut over Mashed Potatoes...delish!! I don't get to have that very often because DH doesn't like the smell or taste of sauerkraut. We drove around a little while and enjoyed the country air. I love it out here. I love the acres of farm land just sprouting and the little farmhouses with Peonies blooming all over. We grabbed some Apple Dumplings for dessert back at the hotel and had a lovely evening.

I am so excited for today! We are going to the Sight and Sound Theater and we are going to see the play "Abraham and Sarah: A Journey of Love." On the drive up here we listened to the book of Genesis and heard from the very beginning to the time of Jacob. It is so wonderful to have a husband who respects God and loves His Word. I am a blessed, blessed woman!!

After the show we are going to look around at some of the Amish country shops and hopefully find a wedding ring quilt in our price range.

I will be back with pictures!!!

God Bless

Spring has Sprung!!

My schooling is almost done for the semester. I am going to be focusing on my home for the summer and hopefully hosting my little brothers for a couple of weeks so my parents can celebrate my Mom's 50th birthday.

There is a lot to do in my home. It has been made even more clear by the current moving project of my dear friend Mary at Turkey Farm Treasures. I was able to help her with a yard sale and saw how much she was condensing her life to the things she enjoys and finds useful.

What perfect timing then that Simple Mom is starting her Spring Cleaning Party this week!! I have Simple Mom's book, Spring Cleaning for Normal People but have never followed through with all the steps. Now is the time! If not now, when?

So, I will be participating in Simple Mom's Cleaning Party with enthusiasm. Here we go!!
