Savor 7 {Saturday} ~ 9/14

Savor 7 {Saturday} is back - and you can link up with me! You can read last week's post, if you missed it. I'm keeping it simple by just posting the 7 blessings rather than using any certain categories like I did in the past.

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. It's getting Fallish {well, somewhere it is - it's still hot here} and that means that Melissa from The Inspired Room is having her annual Fall nesting series. It starts Monday and you can link up any Fall blog posts! It's always pretty over there and Melissa will be sure to have some fun through her 31 days of posting about Fall!

2. Speaking more of Fall, my friend Denise from Denise In Bloom just released a lovely little ebook called Autumn Bliss! It's full of great ideas, Scriptures, family fun, recipes and more to help you experience the richness of the Fall season. And it just so happens that I have a yummy muffin recipe in the book!

3. I had my 1000th blog post this week. That really does feel like an accomplishment. I stuck with something that long - no matter how much I struggled with it through the years. By the way, have you entered the giveaway? I've got a couple of cute chocolate-themed aprons just waiting to make an appearance in your kitchen. :)

4. We are praising God this week for taking care of one of my son's close friends. He ended up having emergency surgery because his appendix burst. But he's OK and healed up much faster than the doctors expected. He's back home now. Quite a scare!

5. I had to sub 3 days for the teacher of the 5th & 6th grade typing classes. And I survived - LOL {extra lattes also helped}! That is definitely a blessing that I'm savoring. :)

6. My son is doing well in high school so far and really enjoys it. It's such a blessing when your child loves going to school and loves his teachers. How is school going for your kiddos so far?

7. Gotta love apple recipes this time of year! I'm working on a few as I want to give you an apple-themed week here! I'm hoping to do it the week after this one. We'll see if I'm ready. It's been a while since I did a theme week. In the past I've done Summer Campout Week, Cake Week, Pumpkin Potpourri Week, Simmering Soup Week, Fall Fruits Festival, Pumpkin Posting Party, and Pear Week! I might have a slight obsession with theme weeks. :)

What blessings did you savor this week? Post your 7 and link up anytime over the weekend. Even if you don't post {or don't have a blog}, I'd love to hear about your blessings!

  1. I happen to like your themed weeks. They are always so much fun.
    Big typing is the one thing I retained from high school so you would have been my favorite teacher size hugs to you.
    Love you my friend!
