I love this time of year for many reasons. This month is pretty full.
First, it's a long, holiday weekend coming up. Labor Day.
Football starts this Saturday!! Really excited about this. I have been counting down for football season since day 100. My plans are to watch college football all day. Especially, my VOLS.
Sunday, my sister is taking me to Paula Deen's restaurant to celebrate my birthday, which falls on Labor Day this year. I was actually born on Labor Day. This will be my first birthday without momma. It's a bittersweet time for me.
Monday is my birthday. Not sure what I will be doing on my actual birthday; but my sister Donna has already made it special for me. Last weekend, she bought me a Tennessee Vols shirt, socks and a necklace. Loved them! Saturday, her and I and my nephew went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast and did some shopping. That was a lot of fun.
It's 85 days until Thanksgiving. While I love Christmas because of our Savior's birth, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I enjoy cooking the meal and watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and decorating the house for Christmas. We have so much to be thankful for and I just enjoy the whole weekend.
Also, this month my friend's daughter is getting married. I taught Lydia in Sunday school when she was two and a half and now she is getting married. I cannot believe how fast time flies but it does and I can't wait to see her get married.
She is beautiful inside and out and she loves to decorate, and watch football and she loves fall. More importantly, she loves Jesus with all her heart and is a tremendous witness for Him. I love her.
So, there you have it. I am so thankful for this time of year.
I will be posting pictures this month about all the things I mentioned above.
