All the Things: An August Update

Perhaps you've noticed I've had a hard time getting back into my writing schedule since my July blogging break. While I don't usually do personal updates, I thought I'd share a few things with you as we prepare to dive into Fall:

  • In case you're wondering, we did not host a French student. Instead I learned some good things about God's timing and honoring my husband.
  • Can you believe I had to take a break from hospitality for a few week during July? More to come on that.
  • On July 26th we celebrated 5 years of life and ministry in Orlando. I still have some processing to do on these past 5 years.
  • I'm starting to connect and be able to use some of my gifts and passions at my church. This is an answer to a prayer of many years. 
  • I'm reading a lot of mindless fiction right now because I spent the beginning of the year diving into lots of serious stuff and needed a break. 
  • I am also reading Supper of the Lamb by Father Robert Farrar Capon. 
  • If you don't know, I work from home as a Virtual Assistant and I love it more and more each day.
  • I'm super excited about the Fall. It's my favorite season. I'll decorate my house, eat all things pumpkin, and go on some fun trips. 
  • A group of ladies met on August 10th to lead IF:Local in Orlando. More on that soon for all you locals.
  • The Nester's 31 Days will be here before you know and I'll be announcing my topic soon.

Thanks for your grace, support, and encouragement, friends! I'm so thankful for you.



  1. Sounds like you've got some fun stuff going on. I bought my first Pumpkin Beer today (technically a Shandy) and enjoyed a Pumpkin Latte yesterday. This is the best time of year!!

  2. I agree and .I'm jealous. I'm planning to celebrate the first day of fall on September 22, with a PSL and decorating party.
