Southern Autumn

Special Note: Pray for Teagan

Life just really gets crazy sometimes! We have just been crazy busy lately, which is a good thing for our business. Looks like soon, we’ll be finished with some major projects and, maybe, I can get back to regular posting again. I’m sorry I’ve been kind of a “no show” lately.

In the meantime, I’m sharing a quiet little setting from last Fall that reminds me of some not quite as crazy days!

Enjoy and be sure to go check out all the wonderful tablesettings at Between Naps on the Porch with Susan!

    Slow cooker pork chops sound perfect for the coming chilly evenings. It did occur to me that as busy as you have been lately, the moment spent in your lovely back yard had to be good for your body, mind, and spirit. In this day and age, good business is a nice problem to have. Thank you for sharing your lovely design and your yummy recipe. Cherry Kay
