*Another SweetHaven Layout + Winners!*

Hi friends, happy Sunday!
I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to get here yesterday and blog...
But I have winners!

First I want to share something.
I finished reading my sweet friend Courtney Walsh's book:
A Sweethaven Summer
& absolutely LOVED it. I was entranced from page one.
I couldn't put it down! Due to the fact that my family needed
food & the house needed to be cleaned & some assignments needed
to be finished...I had to for a few days. But picked it right back up
& finished one week. It's one of the most inspiring books.
It taught me about true love, true friendship, true life.
I adore you Courtney & thank you for having me dig deeper into
my life to realize what's important, what's true.

I made another layout for the Sweethaven challenge - this one is
about traditions:

These are my SWEET sweet friends from high school.
even though we've grown & moved on to lives of our own...
we still make it a tradition to get together for either a fun girls night or weekend.
This was a weekend get away to a hotel in Grapevine, Texas & all day shopping the next
day. We had such a great time! There's usually 2 more girls with us, but one
had to leave early & the other had to work - we sure missed them!

Friends are a gift. A treasure. An absolute joy given to us by God.
I want each one of my friends to know I'm your true. I'll be by you
through thick or thin. I'm always there. Love y'all!

Here's a little close up:

I can't wait for our next girls day!
