We're back!

Battlefield Ride 8.17.14

FINALLY!!!! After a month and a half of not biking we were finally able to get back out there and do a little 15 mile road ride!

And, it was so great to be back together on the bike! I treasure our rides. There are no distractions! It's just our time to get some fresh air and exercise!!

The Battlefield is such a great place to exercise. Not many cars, but lots of people enjoying the day! I feel so blessed that we have our health and can be active and enjoy nature! It is a gift!

On being thankful...

You all know how much I love church signs and quotes! They inspire and make you think. Oftentimes I think God is sending a message directly to me with them. And the other day I happened upon an Instagram account for Madison Avenue Baptist Church. They actually liked one of my posts with a church sign! Well, each week they post their church sign for the week. There were several that really stopped me in my tracks, but this one spoke to me today and I thought I'd share it!

Thanks to God Sign


Life can be so busy and hectic that we sometimes only think to ask God to help, fix, make better, etc. But, how many times do we actually go back and thank Him for helping, fixing, making things better, etc.?!?!? Maybe this was just a little hint to start circling back around more and thanking Him for answered and unanswered prayers!

Have you been thankful today? Be grateful! I'm so blessed in so many ways.

Christina Forbes Photography Special Order Soap

I received an email one day inquiring about a custom soap order from Christina for her photography business.

After the email we had a long talk over the phone about her style, colors, feel, etc. Christina really wanted to have a soap as part of her presentation package for clients. She felt that her time spent with Jennifer Warthan of Warthan Farms Photography was very special and she wanted her clients to have a piece of that in their packages. So, we re-created similar soaps to those Jennifer had ordered.

She decided on the mini soaps because they fit her presentation boxes best.

The bars are simple, rustic and neutral in color. We wanted to keep with her logo and the feel of her blog, website, and social media sites.

The soaps are a cotton scent.

Christina plans to add natural string/raffia as wrapping and maybe some tags. I'm looking forward to seeing her final finishing touches.
