“Eve’s thanklessness for all God does give and her resentfulness of the one fruit He doesn’t give, this is the catalyst of the Fall.”
(Did you catch my post on Eve last week? I was delighted to read this quote a few days later!)
|It all starts in the kitchen with our mugs and muffins.|
|H. brought pumpkin muffins! Yay!|
|We're outgrowing my living room! :)|
|You'll need Epsom salt, your choice of essential oils, a bowl, and a spoon!|
|I used grapefruit and vanilla because I had these on hand (and I wanted a warm yet fruity scent).|
|Pour in about 2 cups of Epsom salt and 20 drops of essential oil (at least 10 drops per cup of salt).|
Stir until oil is well blended into salt.
|That's it!! Seriously! Just use about 1/4 cup (or two big scoops) per load.|
|Precious gifts from Sufficient Grace Ministries: A memory book and bear.|
|From a precious friend, who lost her son in the second trimester this summer.|
What a beautiful reminder of God's love for our babies.
This is the goal for all of us. Our little ones just made it there before us.
|My handsome husband and I with two of the other speakers and E., our sweet hostess.|
|My very creepy "Yay for B&Bs" face.|
|The Blue Rose room. It was so gorgeous but I couldn't get a good shot of the whole room.|
|Here's another corner of the room. My Victorian heart was delighted with the smallest details.|
|Lo and behold, horses and donkeys to pet and feed!|
|Yummy horse treats.|
|We decided we want to buy a farm someday. With a historic home on the property, of course.|
|Mohican State Park was fifteen minutes away so we had a gorgeous drive through the fall colors.|
|We took advantage of the sunshine and hiked a few trails before evening came.|
And then stuffed our tummies at an amazing Amish restaurant-- but alas, both our phone batteries had died so no pictures of our feast. It's probably a good thing I didn't document how much I ate.
|Our B&B was called Somewhere In Time, after the movie with Jane Seymour.|
This autographed picture hung in the hallway. How neat is that?
|Breakfast was scrumptious as the soundtrack of Somewhere In Time played softly in the background.|
|The porch was more modern than Victorian, but so charming! I want those lanterns!|
|The beautiful brick manor.|
