HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGGIE!!!!!
Speaking of birthdays, I had the cutest set this week for a little girl turning ONE!! Her name is Sloan Piper -how cute is that name?? Her momma sent me an invite and that was the inspiration for the cookie set.
I'm finishing up some last minute details on a set for the governors' holiday tour in Alabama and then I'm on to finishing up some personal baking and decorating. I can't believe that we leave tomorrow for Alabama. This is such a needed and anticipated trip for a number of reasons.
My hubby, Bill, is on his last day of a crazy work hours, six 12-13 hour days for the past 4 weeks. He is beyond is exhausted and ready for a break. I've been shipping cookies to the sweet people of Alabama for quite a few months now and I'm looking forward to meeting some of them, not to mention finally meeting Evan. We've never been to Alabama and are ready to do some exploring while we are there and are in need of some serious time together. Life is crazy busy and we don't take the time to slow down and enjoy ourselves enough at all.
Although we'll be gone for Thanksgiving and away from our children and family, there will be much that we are giving thanks for! This creative outlet being one of them and all of the great people who continue to ask for cookies from me! Some days I can't even believe that any of this is real!
God is good and I can't wait to soak in His goodness on the streets and in the towns of Alabama!! Tomorrow we have soccer and then have to get to packing. Should be fun -I hope that I don't over pack -I have a feeling that's inevitable!!
I'll keep you posted!!
