Front Porch Friday

Front PorchHappy Friday!  Welcome back!  We made it through the wedding and it was amazing!  The bride was stunning, the venue was beautiful, and it was a great day celebrating with family and friends!  I will share more in the days to come…how we styled the barn doors and crates for the backdrop, the table centerpieces and decor, and how we put together the food table for the reception.  This post contains affiliate links.

Front Porch Friday – Full Wedding Mode!

Front PorchToday, there won’t be any time to relax on the front porch.  In fact, the only one on either of our front porches will be the neighbors’ cat sleeping soundly!

Nope, today we are in full preparation mode for Angie’s daughter’s wedding tomorrow!  That means all hands on deck, including mine!

Angie has already posted a few posts about the wedding preparations, such as the DIY Barn Doors and Gift Bags.  Soon she will be sharing much more from the big day!  Be sure to check back for more about this wonderful event!

Fall Festival: Apple Butter Makin’ Days!

Apple Butter Makin DaysThis month we went to our local, annual Apple Butter Makin’ Days.   The weather couldn’t have been better!

One of the nicest things about Mt. Vernon, Missouri, where this festival takes place, is the Clock Tower on the square.  A picture could not do it justice though.  I don’t ever get tired of the small town squares and their unique architectures.

Front Porch Friday – Wedding, Walking, and Wonderful Music!

Apple Butter Makin DaysWelcome to Front Porch Friday!  We are in all-out wedding preparation mode!  For those of you who don’t know, my daughter’s wedding is Saturday, October 28th! We are getting really excited!  We have finished the wedding favor boxes (see the post about them here!), started packing the crates with all of the things we are taking to the wedding venue, and going over all of our lists for the hundredth time!

Lynn and I went to Mount Vernon, Missouri on Sunday for Apple Butter Makin’ Days, which is a great fall festival with crafts, food, and of course, apple butter!  She will be sharing more about our trip next week.  My favorite part was the church service in the town square on Sunday morning.  It was a brisk, cool morning and as we walked around the square, you could hear beautiful old hymns and wonderful praise and worship music.  It was awesome to be outside and enjoy!

I Will BreatheThis quote has really stayed with me this last week.  My husband had surgery, it was a busy week at work, and it seems like everything came at me at once!  I have said to myself several times:  I will not quit!  I hope this helps you to just breathe…and know we are strong….we will not quit!

Front Porch Friday: Listening is Worth a Thousand Words and more.

Front PorchListening is worth a thousand words!  What do I mean?  Well, I met a wonderful lady at the Nursing Home where my niece works.  I sat with her for over an hour and could have stayed longer.  I asked her about her life, her family and her adventures.  I can tell you from experience you can learn a lot about life if you just listen.  I plan to visit her again soon and others there.  So many don’t have regular visitors and it means so much to them for someone to take interest and just listen.  We are all God’s children!

Fall Arts & Craft Festival!

Lynn and I went to the Fall Arts and Craft Show this weekend in Ozark, Missouri. It is nestled in a beautiful valley on the banks of the Finley River.  The weather was perfect for a trip to the craft show.  Not a cloud in the sky and it was warm and sunny!

There were over 300 booths! I really enjoyed just walking through the booths and tents admiring all of the fall decorations, cute baby stuff, pottery, and so many other great craft items.  I had to get some handmade cards…that is always something I look for!  I also found a couple of Christmas gifts – planning ahead! Then it was on to the mums…look at these!

It really feels like fall when we go to this craft show and see this beautiful display of flowers and yard ornaments… this vendor and many more are here every year.

Did I mention the food?  Oh my!  My favorite part of any fall festival!  Caramel apples, pies, cinnamon rolls, and of course…kettle corn!  And the sweet tea was amazing!  We had the hardest time trying to decide where to eat lunch…we finally decided on the Mossy River Pie Hole!  I had a Frito Pie and Lynn had beans and cornbread.  It was delicious!

I can’t wait for next weekend…another awesome fall festival to go to in Mount Vernon, Missouri…Apple Butter Makin’ Days!  Lynn will post soon about our trip to get some apple butter!
