i'm smiling today...

here's a list why.

*i read this post today.
two less orphans in the world.
if you click on any link i list here today, let this be the one!
it will move you beyond words.

*my friend jess shared her lovely home here.
it is welcoming and warm and friendly.
i love it!

*my bloggy friend amy went on a fall treasure hunt with her kiddos.
it inspired me!
what a wonderful way to share autumn with our curious littles.

*this recipe for homemade pumpkin butter is on the to-do list for this weekend.
i can't wait.

*speaking of recipes, anna and i made bubble up pizza this week.
my college roommate used to make it and it's so yum.
josh had FIVE servings.

*this beautiful fall porch made me want to decorate for fall.
i've been needing something to motivate me, and seeing these gorgeous pictures just did it.

 *and finally, i wrote this quote down on a sticky note so i can remember.
it's a keeper:
“May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride, and expectation with which God sees you in every moment.”  John O’Donohue

have a blessed weekend my friends!

What a beautiful story! Maria is just stunning and her happiness is completely evident.

Have you heard that my little orphan, Nicholas, has been chosen?? I was in full blown hormone-induced hysterical tears when I found out. I am just so happy these days.
