A Little Bird Told Me Number #62 and A BIG Announcement

Welcome to...
The Life of Jennifer Dawn

Here I am!  Yes, I'm still here!  Sorry I have been absent lately.  A LOT has been going on!
There has been...
Eli's birthday party to plan and host,
Some home remodeling,
Big projects I've been working on but haven't had the time to blog about yet,
Still dealing with a lot of sadness over daddy's death (especially as we draw close to the one year anniversary),
&
A life altering decision--to resign my virtual teaching job and be a stay at home mommy rather than a work from home mommy!

Yes, on October 16...
I will be starting yet another chapter in my life.  For those of you who know me, you know that this is something I have prayed about for years.  God's timing is always perfect!

More on that later, but for now...
Let's celebrate my BIG decision with a party!

Let's get started with four fabulous posts that were linked up during the last party...
Debbie from Made from Pinterest shared with us how to make Mini Apple Pie Cookies.
Shelley--The Hap Hazard Krafter--linked up a tutorial for Yarn Pumpkins.
Maggie of The Love Nerds linked up a recipe for Homemade Apple Butter.
&
Joy from XOXO Grandma shared a stunning Plaid Outfit that she sewed!

  3. Congratulations on your decision, that is lovely news :-) Thinking of you as you approach the first anniversary of your father's death. I know from experience that is not an easy thing.

    Thank you for hosting the linky. I've shared my Beef Stroganoff. It's delicious and very easy too!

  4. Thank you for hosting, especially amidst all your chaos - I quite understand the work in planning those big birthday parties, as you can see by my Nemo party link, lol. Hopefully some of the crazy will help you cope on that sad anniversary. :(

    1. It was a big decision, and one that was difficult to make. I think it is going to be the best thing for my family though.

  8. Congratulations on your decision to be a SAHM. God will richly bless you for trusting Him in this. I was also a working mom, then a stay at home working mom, then a stay at home mom. You can read some of my posts on my Working Mom vs SAHM Pinterest board:
