I love the excitement circulating through
our home, as we prepare for an onslaught
of my crazy but much beloved
Southern Family coming for
I love that in a few short days, I will
start my baking and prepping, as well as, getting out all the plates and glasses and such.
I love that I can already smell the sage
and the poultry seasonings and homemade
cornbread baking in the oven...
I can already taste my Pumpkin-Butterscotch

keeping my fingers crossed that a major
sponsor I am in communications with
is on board with me.
I hope to launch my first online
show right after Thanksgiving.
I'll keep you updated. I would
love to have you join me.
So how did your week start out?
