The perfect S’more Date night weather is finally upon us! My husband and I invited couples from church to come over for a date night that we called, “Amore’ S’mores.” The temperatures were perfect, the skies were clear, and the fire felt really good when the sun went down! Let me share with you the events of our fun group date night!

Refreshment comes in many forms. Here are some recent things that have refreshed my life! I pray it will inspire you to refresh your life as well!
This has been a super-busy summer including lots of travel and time away from home. However, on a recent and treasured day at home, I had the opportunity to really dig in and freshen things up around our house. Oh my, it felt as good as getting the suitcases completely unpacked after vacation!
I find that when life gets busy, there are things that get done hastily, causing disorganization or carelessness to step in. Here are a few areas that I took care of that might inspire you to freshen things up a bit on this Friday!
