ONE YEAR IN TEXAS ... and Apple Crisp recipe!

Hello friends! Happy Wednesday! I hope the week is treating you well! We are seeing summer come to an end... At least I am... I feel like it's almost done... I am already excited to hear all the plans for Fall! Ladies Bible Study, Mom2Mom, new songs for the choir, etc! Church fills with activity again! And that makes me so happy! :)

Also... this weekend (Sunday) was our first anniversary living here in Texas! It's been a great year, God's blessed us so much with wonderful friends and with the great opportunity to have family over from Mexico! My weeks are no longer so lonely! I love Wisconsin, I miss it a lot, I miss my dear friend Ashley who I used to see about 1 a week! and her boys!!! ... I miss hubby's family tremendously! But here... there's always something going on! And I am very happy for myself, of course! but especially for hubby and the girls! Our lives are so full! :) I wish we could all be close but I can't dwell on that ... I have to Praise God because he's blessed us so much!

So... now... let's see... Oh! Yes! I hope you are getting ready for our Coffee Friday party! We have a great blogger to be featured! She will be serving coffee for us and I know you will love her and her blog! Please add some "coffee" to one of your posts this week (you just have to mention coffee somewhere and link back to us) so you can link up!!!

We had great posts linked last Friday ... but today I want to thank Gg for joining our Coffee Party... Look what she brought with her:

I hope you stop by her blog and say hi! ;)
