Break Time

Hey y'all!

I'm sure you noticed that I didn't put up any posts on Monday or Tuesday. Usually I would have a weekend or event or maybe style post up on Monday, and my Berry Writes post on Tuesday. But I really think I need a break. This isn't the first time I've taken a break on the blog, but this time is a little different.

My sister, her hubby and kids come over and we all "break bread" together. Everyone (myself included) helps out in one way or another - either by prepping the ingredients, cooking, setting the table, clearing up or doing the dishes.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay, my second favorite month of the year is here! I love Christmas time, the reason for the season, and the feeling of hope that surrounds this period. As the days lead up to Christmas Day, I've found myself interested in doing an Advent devotional plan on Youversion.

Exactly a week ago, the US Thanksgiving holiday was upon us. It's typically a day with lots of food, family, friends and fun. Even when I lived in Nigeria, I made sure to be here in Atlanta for Thanksgiving - so that I'd be in Lagos with Cakes for Christmas. I've had a hard time being grateful lately, so I took it upon myself to come up with a list of ways to infuse gratitude into one's life. Tammy, my most frequent vlog guest was home for Thanksgiving and shared some tips as well.
