I am starting to get my fall decor out. My favorite season is FAll. It is so beautiful here in the Pacific Northwest during the fall. The smells, crisp air, and colors are so amazing.
The scarecrow was a gift from my mother-in-law a few years back. And the candy corn, I ordered from a sweet gal from "theunexpectedreturnhome.blogspot.com" I saw them on her blog and had to have a set. Let me see if I can get a better close-up picture for you!

My Birthday was awesome. I met my hubby and my girls as well as my in-laws at AppleBee's for half-price appetizers. When I got there, these flowers were on the table, as well as my wrapped gifts. I got what I wanted. This scrapbooking carousel by Making Memories. AND
My name is Tiara which means "crown of Jewels" so hubby got me this beautiful white-gold diamond Tiara necklace. Can U say surprised!!!! Wow, my hubby always seems to bless me so.

God is so GOOD!

Me and hubby on the beach. Perfect weather, perfect day. This is my favorite place to be.

BIG changes in my home have taken place. Right after our dog passed and my emotions were still so raw, we had another family emergency. My mother in law broke her hip. And will not be able to take care of herself, my father in law is in his late 70's so as you can guess he too has a difficult time. So, after speaking with hubby about this life-changing issue, we had to put our girls into school, so tha I may be able to take care of my in-laws.

The hard part about this is that I must admit I had a horrible attitude about it. I was acting selfish. I wanted to homeschool so badly, but I can't do it all either.

But, I realized that the Lord wants my obedience. And I will be blessed in having an obedient heart. I always have to realize that everything is in Gods' timing not mine.

So, I was very stinky, and had a bad attitude, and lots of emotions about my dog, my hubby took me to the beach for a week to help me clear my head. I always go to the big vast body of water, this is where I feel closest to my Father. I feel him so much in this place (hubby knew this, thats' why he took me there) I realized the creator of the beautiful Pacific Ocean, who knows just where the tide needs to stop, has my life in His hands.

Blessings all, I did take a few nice pictures while there, I'll upload when I have a chance.

Remembering that aweful day.
And saying a prayer for all the family and friends of those whose lives were sacrificed.

I remember exactly where I was standing when I heard the news, and I remember very clearly my reaction.
