My Dream Journal

I’ve never had the chance to share about the beautiful gift that my husband gave to me for our 3rd Wedding Anniversary several weeks ago – a unique leather journal. He had done some research about traditional gifts to give on this specific anniversary year, and something leather was recommended. So leather is what he chose.

I call the book my “Dream Journal.” The soft cover and the vintage gold key clasp inspire me, and the special binder pages give me a wonderful place to write down my thoughts and ideas. So far I’ve penned poems, prayers, and other musings that were on my heart. It really has been a lovely gift.

So a special thank you goes to my husband, Roy, for this sweet gift. It will continue to remind me of him and his love each time I use it. ❤

Joy Dare – Three Gifts Round

Friday was a special day. My Mom came to our house to visit, and to help out with several projects that I hadn’t had the energy to work on.

Together we looked for “Three Gifts Round” for my Joy Dare Challenge. We had a fun time searching for them, and as always, God provided these blessings!

The funny thing is that all three of the gifts ended up being food items. 🙂 The first was a Dunkin’ Donuts latte, the second was a tasty dinner, and the third was a delectable cheesecake that my Mom and husband helped me to make.

  1. A Dunkin’ Donuts Latte – Before my Mom and I headed out shopping, we stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts to get some “fuel,” i.e. caffeine. She got her normal hot mocha latte, and I got the same drink, except iced. It was a very nice treat, as I hadn’t had anything from Dunkin’ in a while – and I was able to share this special gift with my Mom!
  2. A Tasty Dinner – After taking me shopping for food items to make meals, my Mom helped me to make a dinner of turkey meatloaf (with chunks of cheese inside), onion-roasted potatoes, and steamed carrots. It was delicious! My husband, Mom, and I were able to sit down to a nice meal and share some time together. Such a sweet gift! 🙂
  3. A Delectable Cheesecake – My niece and nephew had a birthday party on Saturday, and my husband wanted to make a dessert to bring with us. He found a recipe for a No-Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake that he just HAD to try. 😀 So my Mom helped us to purchase the ingredients and to make the dessert. It wasn’t too difficult to prepare, and it was a hit at the party! We even got to bring some of it home to enjoy later.

Praise God for Three Gifts Round!
