Time To Shop In Our Pantries! Raw Apple Cake Recipe

Hi friends and welcome! 
It's a very different world we are living in than ever before, isn't it? Thankfully, and hopefully, it won't be forever.
Well, have you done your Spring cleaning?  Maybe even twice?  I think that we have all done more around our house this Spring and then ever before. Spring cleaning can get a little dull and, for me personally, even run out! So what's next?  Well, since you're home anyway, why not try your hand at cooking and baking. I mean, you do have the time like never before.  And, there's actually a truly practical reason to learn now! If you're heeding the advice of our officials, you are staying home, as am I.

Welcoming April

Hello friends, I'm so glad you are here.  Happy April to you all!
I, much like you, am doing the best I can to make the best of this time at home. I pray that you all are well and finding the silver linings in these 'very different' times. Be well. Keep up all the beautiful inspiration.
Let's take a look at some of the beauty and inspiration you shared at last week's party.

Let's Dream Big!

Hello, dear friends. I'm so glad you are joining me here. I pray you are all safe and that this pandemic has been only an inconvenience for you and your family and nothing more.  Please join me in praying for all those impacted by these scary days.

For those who are sick, exposed and scared, those who have, sadly, lost a loved one and most of all, all of those in the healthcare field, who are taking care of our friends and family at great personal cost to themselves and their families, I am so grateful. I'm humbled, and yet grateful that I never had to deal with anything like this when I was still nursing.

Thursday Favorite Things From A SIP Blogger

My friends, I must offer you my sincerest apologies. With all that has been going on...COVID-19, and, now, us Shelter In Place (SIP) I completely missed the Party time. That is not to say I forgot you! I have still been pinning through the week and will have my Features up, I hope within the next couple hours, but I am truly sorry to be behind.  I hope you understand and will link up now and come back later today or tomorrow to see if you were featured. 
Please stay safe, friends!

Spring Blooms Everywhere!

Hey friends, Good morning and Happy TFT to you!
I pray this finds you and your families safe and sound and free of any epidemics!
Not much else in the news, these days, is there? I know several of you, like me, are compromised for one reason or another. So, I pray you are taking every precaution.

Spring Inspiration

Good morning, friends. I hope you are having a wonderful week.  I don't know about you, depending on where you all live, but here in Northern California, I am seriously missing Winter! No chilly mornings or nights, no frost, no seeing your breath in front of your face, but more importantly no Rain!
We so badly need it to avoid more devastating fires, not to mention, that I just Love the Rain.
With Spring just four short weeks away,

Shabby Chic - Farmhouse Style Valentine's

Good morning, friends. Happy February! 
I just lost January! I swear I have no idea how January slipped by me so fast! Do You ever feel that way?! 
Thank you all for the well wishes. I believe, and I am finding wood to knock on, that I am finally over the sicknesses that stole my month and energy.

Valentine's DIYs and Inspirations

Good morning, beautiful people. I'm so happy you are here. I am so happy to be here with you! The last few weeks have been pretty dicy, but I think I am, finally,  beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Yay!  Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? This is one occasion I tend to pass on if I'm being honest, but I love all things beautiful that people come up with to savor the day and, of course, the gorgeous decorations that come with it! So, that's where this week's party took me. Thank you for sharing with us.
Pam from Everyday Living shares some absolutely beautiful Valentine Inspiration from her quotes and images to her beautiful decor her post is definitely inspiring. Thank you, Pam, for reminding us and sharing some of my favorite Biblical passages and the reason to celebrate love every day.  Always so important to always remember...
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant" and "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4 and 7

I'mmmm Back! Medicated..But Back

Hi friends, I'm so sorry about last week. I never did get back to the party. I apologize, but, like I said, sometimes, life just takes over. Being a nurse and someone who's already living with pain, you write a lot of things off about your body, until you just can't anymore. :(

Happy New Year! Come Inspire or Be Inspired.

Glad Tidings, friends! Truly, since we last gathered, we all shared the Good News of Christmas! How wonderful is that?! It seems as if it has been forever since I last sat down at my computer to address you all and to look over all your beautiful projects, writings, beliefs, and shares with me, but it's really only been a couple of weeks. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that! It has been a very busy Winter, Fall, Christmas... well, time, in general, I guess. Some wonderful happenings and some very difficult times, but here we still are the beginning of a new decade! 

Does that blow your mind as much as it does mine?! I know it's really just a day later than yesterday, but....2020!! Whoa! It sounds otherworldly to me.  I'm sorry I haven't been able to share as much as I usually do in the past few parties, but family and health must take precedence and I feel, and hope, that you all truly do understand.
