Today is the day of a couple of "firsts." Not only is it the first Sunday of Advent...my favorite church season...it's also the day I launch my new blog. I have a LOT to do to finish the design...including adding social media links, favorite blogs, etc....but I'd rather spend time with my sweet girls, who are both home this weekend. We have to finish the Christmas tree!! (The picture to the left is from last year...)
So, enjoy what's there for now, if you'd like to check it out! www.connectandencourage.com

Did you ever come across a new artist while looking for a particular song? I have...many times. One of my best discoveries is the amazingly gifted singer, Kimberly Lord. Her Christmas album is simply spectacular! I believe you can buy it on iTunes as well as Amazon and CD Baby. You can preview it here. (When you do, be sure to click on the title track...#14. It is beautiful!!!)

One of those things, in my opinion, is the Hayley Mills/John Mills/James MacArthur movie, The Truth About Spring. This film was shown on TV over and over again when I was growing up and it was a real favorite. So, I finally found it online and ordered it. (I think it's a production-on-demand DVD.) My extended family members are here for the holiday and we are watching it this evening.
It's just as wonderful as I remembered it to be!
What things do you remember that you think might be gone forever? A quick internet search might prove otherwise!!
More this weekend...

Oops! I never got around to posting yesterday. Busy, busy, BUSY!!! Sorry...
Getting ready to welcome our Thanksgiving company, so I am on the run today, too...but will post more tomorrow and through the weekend....In the meantime, however, I am going to take a few minutes to sit down and write some notes to some dear ones to tell them just how thankful I am that they are in my life.
