Savor 7 {Saturday} ~ 9/8

Welcome back to Savor 7 {Saturday} friends ~ a new way to share blessings and encourage each other! **Making it a little easier on you if you've been wanting to participate - you can either follow my categories or just simply list out 7 blessings from your week - this is not meant to be stressful!** For explanation of the 7 categories, see the original post. Thank you for joining me last week!

Let's look back at our week and "savor" {to have experience of; to taste or smell with pleasure; to delight in} together. 

7 blessings. 7 experiences, tastes, smells, delights. 7 ways to share, encourage, inspire. 1 for each day of the week. Join me? Write your own post, sharing something for each of the 7 categories or your own listing of 7 blessings from your week and link it up right here anytime over the weekend. If you don't have a blog, share some of your blessings in the comments!

Savor 7 {Saturday}


Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up my eyes to the hills--From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. 
STORY TELLER: My sweet friend Katie used to have a blog called Frugal Femina. After being away for blogging for a year, she came back to it, but with some changes and a new direction for her blog. She has just relaunched as Katie Tevis - I would love it if you checked it out! You might like her recent post Why I Started Running Again (+ How to Get Through a Slump When Developing a New Habit) or be inspired by her latest post Do You Recognize God's Power? I just love Katie and I know you will too! :)   

SOCIAL: Well, no social outings this week...unless my Zumba class counts? LOL!! But I did talk to a friend of mine that I hadn't talked to in a while. It was good to catch up with her and also to know how I can best pray for her through some difficult times.

SILLY: It's the season of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, so I have to share the link to a video I made with my friend Kim a couple years ago on how to make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte - it's quite funny, especially since all I do to "help" is giggle. :) Go. Watch. Laugh. Make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte. You're welcome. :D

SNAPSHOT: Starbucks came out with their Fall drinks and since it was so hot and I had worked at the kiddo's school all day, I felt that I *deserved* a salted caramel mocha frappuccino. :)

SIPS: Um, see above - LOL. Plus I did have a pumpkin spice latte the next day. And I plan on having one from Peet's today - gotta compare the flavors, right?! Have you had any yummy Fall drinks?

SWEETS: Beside all the sweet drinks this week, I made a new creation that could be breakfast or dessert - so yummy! Waffle {& Bacon} Breakfast Parfaits! What's your favorite breakfast creation?

I hope you enjoyed my 7 things to savor! Now it's your turn! Write a Savor 7 {Saturday} post including these 7 categories or just listing your own 7 kinds of blessings from the week and come back here to link up. Please make sure you link to the actual post rather than just your blog. And please include a link back to this post so people can find the link-up!
