Savor 7 {Saturday} ~ 9/21

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. We love having soup as the weather starts to cool off a bit, so I made Sausage & Kale soup. Sooo yummy - one of our faves {In fact, it's on my Family Favorites Pinterest board!}. I mostly follow the original recipe, but I use a half stick of butter instead of a whole stick in my pot.

2. I haven't been able to meet friends to walk quite as often because of schedules, but I do walk every Saturday morning and got to walk on Thursday with another friend. It's nice to be outside and a great chance to chat at the same time. Do you go walking/running?

3. I got all my pumpkins out to decorate for Fall, but I haven't actually done the decorating yet. Hopefully this weekend!

4. We recently realized that my son had very little memory of all the Disney movies he watched when he was little {how can you not remember a movie you watched like 30 times as a kid - LOL}, so now we are trying to watch some of them. I don't mind watching all of them over again! :) What's your favorite Disney movie?

5. We're going to get a little rain today, which is such a blessing for the grass & plants! I don't mind a little rain now and then if it doesn't interfere with my plans. :)

6. I mentioned that I would be doing a week all about apples and that is official! It starts Monday, so come on back for some yummy recipes during the week! I can't wait to share them with you and celebrate Autumn!

7. Maybe you've heard of the big 31 Days series link-up each year for blogs {over at The Nesting Place}. Even if you're not a blogger, you should stop by there on 10/1 to see if there are some blog series you want to follow. You're sure to find a series that's just what you've been needing to read. It's been happening for a few years and I've always avoided joining in because it seems like too much pressure. But I *think* I'm actually going to try it this year! Yes, by now you should know if you're doing it or not, have a plan, have posts written, have a button, etc. I do have some things in mind and if I can get moving on it in the next few days, then I'll make it official. I guess the point actually is to do 31 posts in 31 days, but not everybody does. I'll announce it on the blog if I decide to go for it. Do you participate in 31 Days?

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. How can he forget Disney movies. I remember every one I ever watched. In detail. LOL!
    And I actually did get to go walking yesterday with a friend. They canceled Zumba and didn't tell us. *sigh*
    I started Fall decorating myself. I am actually enjoying it this year.
    Big at the moment I'm savoring some oatmeal cookies size hugs to you.
