A thank you and Journal pg 12 update

Good morning!

Carrie from Cottage Cozy sent me the sweetest gift!

These are wonderful Thanksgiving gift bags for giving out holiday goodies and a sheet of stickers too! How sweet is she??????? She's a wonderful person, please visit her blog and see for yourself♥ THANK YOU CARRIE!

Ok, so I recently purchased this print on Etsy from The Mincing Mockingbird!

It's titled 'It is folly to assume my awesome lies dormant'
I totally love his birds but the titles and phrases he puts with them take them up to a whole new level! They're great! If you visit him, I bet you WILL heart him :)

So I kind of 'borrowed' his quote for my journal girl. I changed one word but yeah, it's his wonderful quote for sure! I just felt it fit her so well :)


My eye appointment went well. Very nice clinic that I hadn't visited before but will definitely return to. My eyes have gotten a little worse, but I knew that. Now to pick out glasses. I don't like that part very much.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hey Darla,
I could come glass shopping with you and give my opinion-if only I lived closer.
I'm sure they'll look great.
Hugs,
