Savor 7 {Saturday} ~ 10/13

Welcome to Savor 7 {Saturday} friends ~ a new way to share blessings and encourage each other! *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. Thanks 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 7 blessings from your week ~ link it up anytime this weekend. If you don't have a blog, share your blessings in the comments - I'd love to hear them!

Savor 7 {Saturday}


Proverbs 12:25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.
STORY TELLER: My friend Teri Lynne {now blogging at fresh perspective} is doing an awesome 31 Day Series! It's 31 Days of #MustRead 31 Days series - Teri Lynne has blessed us by picking through the hundreds of great series and come up with a few that you don't want to miss! I love her recommendations - you should check them out. :)

SOCIAL: I didn't really have any social outings this week {though I was blessed by a lunch out with my hubs - yay!} but I was actually being social online with the West Coast Christian Bloggers. It's a new group and I wanted to mention it here in case any of you are Christian bloggers on the West Coast or nearby {like ID, MT, NV, AZ} and don't know about the group yet. It's a fun way to connect with like-minded people who are actually in the same time zone! :) Leave a comment if you'd like to be included in the Twitter list or Facebook group and I'll follow up.

SILLY: Since I'll be attending a blog conference soon {Allume}, this post from long ago came to my mind. I came up with a list of possible topics to speak about at a blog conference near you. Check out Lisa's Blog Conference Topics for a giggle {Laughter is such a blessing, isn't it?}. Also? I noticed that was back in the days when I actually got more than 3 comments on my blog - LOL - there are 22 comments on that post!

SNAPSHOT: Hubs and I headed out late to look at stepping stones for a path in our front yard. We walked into Lowe's and this is what we saw! Ack!! I am not ready for this! Can I decorate for Fall first? LOL! Interesting note - we also went into Home Depot and there wasn't a Christmas item in sight. So, is it a blessing that the Christmas stuff is already available in Lowe's or is it a blessing that we don't have to see Christmas stuff yet in Home Depot??

SIPS:  Plenty of lattes this week - pumpkin spice and caramel. I do so love flavored lattes. LOVE them. :) Do you like lattes? Have you had one? What's your favorite flavor {or do you just have 'em plain}?

SWEETS: I did enjoy some No-Bake Pumpkin Pie {yum} which I'll share on the blog sometime soon. Other than that, I just went with Trader Joe's dark chocolate - that's considered health food, right?! :)

I hope you enjoyed my 7 things to savor! Your turn! Write a Savor 7 {Saturday} post listing 7 blessings from the week and come back to link up - or share about your blessings in the comments. Please link to the actual post, not just your blog. And please include a link back to this post so people can find it! You're welcome to use the graphic at the top in your post or sidebar. Visit another linker or 2 to share some encouragement!
