Dress Down Friday for 2019-07-26

Here are some of the things I’ve been enjoying this past week.

Like most everyone, I’m a huge Stranger Things fan. While we were in Atlanta last week for a visit with family we stopped by to see Starcourt Mall. 😉

I found it a lot like his other books, which I also enjoyed, full of good quotes, great pictures, and things that make me slow down and think.

Dress-Down Friday | Happy First Birthday L Edition

This is a “Dress-Down Friday” in honor of our daughter L, who’s celebrating her first birthday today. I can’t believe it has been a year since the arrival of this wonderful gift from God.
