If you're in the U.S., you know that today is Veteran's Day. If you're like me, there are some special veterans in your life. Here's my favorite:
That's my son Will, who is a pilot with the U.S. Navy. Actually, Will is still on active duty, and he was deployed when his son was born. Seeing the sacrifices Will and his family make has made me even more appreciative of the men and women who serve in our armed forces, so this day when we pause to appreciate all veterans means a lot to me.
Today I'm happy to share with you some highlights from the last Grace at Home party.
Thanksgiving is approaching! If you're planning to host Thanksgiving dinner this year (I am, praise God!), you might like these ideas for decorating.
Ann from Ann's Entitled Life made a silk flower swag for a lantern, and she gives step-by-step directions for making your own.
MaryJo from MasterPIECES of My Life shows how you can make a beautiful centerpiece for any season just but filling a wooden bowl.
Planning a road trip for Thanksgiving? If you have little children, you'll appreciate this post from Dave and Jamie of PhotoJeepers.
If you have little ones at home, you might want to make some fun pumpkin pie playdough. Joy from Artful Homemaking shares her recipe.
Would you like to incorporate some lighter fare into your Thanksgiving dinner this year? Jennifer from Wanderlust and Wellness shares a beautiful spinach salad recipe that looks just right for the Thanksgiving table!
As Thanksgiving approaches this year, most of us are seeing many more people than we were at this time last year. I was challenged and encouraged by this post from Amy at Wasteland to Graceland: As One Who Has Received Grace, Am I Living a Life of Grace?
And on a very practical note, Michele Morin from Living Our Days shares a simple way to hit our "mental reset button."
