September Happenings

I’ve finally conceded to the fact that this year is flying by. So there’s no need for me to freak out about it at the beginning of every monthly recap. Basically, I’m trying to contain myself for your reading pleasure. I can’t promise I will be quite as restrained next month.

As always, just click on either the link or the picture to be taken to the post!

#4 is my favorite link from this group…probably because it’s the one I most want to do something about! That Hobby Lobby gift card is definitely being put to good use in my home!!
