Savor 7 {Saturday} ~ 8/10

It's back! My last Savor 7 post was back in January. I have wanted to bring back Savor 7 {Saturday} for a while and feel like I'm ready now! This time it won't be so complicated {but you can use my original 7 categories if you like} because who wants complicated on the weekend? This is a simple way to look back at the week and appreciate the blessings, big or small. You don't even have to explain/describe your 7 like I did - just list them out and post!

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!

Savored this week:

1. My silly son turning 14! I'm sure all you moms get that I'm happy and sad at the same time! Love.that.kid.  :)

2. So so loved hearing and seeing son interacting with his friends. He had several friends over just to hang out, goof around, and eat cheesecake. They all had so much fun and I love those sounds of laughter {OK, I said laughter, not so much the screeching sounds - LOL}.

3. Creamy Baked Cheesecake. Yessss. That's what my son requested for his birthday along with strawberries and homemade whipped cream. 'Twas delicious.

4. Mostly finished switching son's room and spare room plus the painting/reorganizing of it all. There's still a bit more painting to be done and we need to finish organizing his things. But we got him moved in before his birthday, so yay! He's very happy with his new room and a full-size bed now since he's 5'11".

5. Secret Facebook groups. Sounds weird, but it's cool! The secret part means that only members know about the group, who is in it, and what's posted. I created the group for my local running/walking friends so that we can easily post times and places for our walks. We also share links for recipes and articles about exercise, etc. It's so much easier than messaging everybody.

6. If you're a blogger, then you might also love this post from Amy Lynn Andrews ~ Blogging Time Management: The Main Hurdle. Such a great post!!

7. I'm savoring Savor 7 {Saturday}!! :D Hope you can join me!

I'm posting this a little early in case you decide you want to post your own list of 7 and link up - feel free to do so anytime over the weekend! I'd also love to hear from you in the comments - share your blessings from the week! 

Thanks for being here with me friends! I do savor the blessing of having you here reading along - you keep me going. Have a blessed day! :)
