My Electric Tea Kettle

I make French press coffee every morning and then drink hot water the rest of the day!  I love drinking hot water all winter long.  My tea kettle and I are very close!


What I'm Dreading...

I hate when people I love go through hard stuff!  


What I'm Excited about...

Our trip to Seattle for Thanksgiving.  My parents, cousin Madelynne and our family will fly out there to see my sister and brother in law for the week.  We are all renting an AIR BNB together and doing tourist things and enjoying the holiday together!  I can't wait!  The kids are pumped.  We have been reading all about Seattle.

What Else is New...

I applied and was selected to be a contributor the the Des Moines Moms Blog for 2018.  I am so excited to write once a month for them.   My friend Becky is also a contributor and I think the world of her.

I also am excited about sharing fun finds with 6th and Style.  You can find me on their FB page today at 2pm CST sharing my new letter board.  It's so cute!  

Don't forget on Tuesday to link up and share your monthly snap shot!






Until next time, keep on keeping on  with a joyful, faith-filled life.  #tribekoko
