"What's comin' will come and we'll meet it when it does."
Hullo, all. How fare ye this fine Thursday? I and my family are quite well, thank you--we can't complain! God is faithful and so, so very good.
(By the way, can anyone guess who and what the quote is from??)
So. . .
My thinking was, upon the coming of the new year, to commit to writing and posting no less than three posts every week.
*looks at date of last post*
Well, as you can see, that hasn't happened. Hopefully, however, it will change within the next couple weeks. But I shall not make any promises! Why? Simply put, I am planning a wedding! Mine!! And it's getting ever closer and closer.
Only 253 more days to go!!
With that said, we are getting the details ready, planning the guest lists, finding/designing invitations, confirming the venue, looking at housing options, and the list goes on. If you have been--or are in, or are going to be--in this situation, then you know just how overwhelming it all can be. But I do know, stress and frustration aside, it will all come together beautifully. And I can hardly wait.
To top that off, I am also considering opening a new Etsy shop. . . This one, unlike the one I shared with my sisters, will feature framed word art. I am really excited for this and hope something will come of it. However, I am at a sort of draw right now in thinking of a shop name. . . Got any ideas? Evan has been helping me toss around a few, but none have really stuck out to me. . . "Penmaiden's Word Shoppe." "Penmaiden's Lettering." "Penmaiden's Treasures." "Of Pen & Poetry." "Sarah's Cherishables." Still thinking. But I am definitely open to suggestions! Got any ideas, dear creative creatures??
I wanted to take the time in this post to give such an update, but to also ask you, my faithful friends, if you have any questions regarding this whole dating/courting/upcoming marriage thing. If so, I would be more than happy to answer to the best of my ability. I am 23 years old now and have a wee bit o' experience under my belt, and it would be an absolute honor to talk with you. Regarding this, if there was a certain subject you would wish to discuss, I would love to start posting a new topic once every week. This could include subjects such as patience in God's timing, my view (and others') on dating and courtship, preparing for marriage, homemaking, etc. I truly believe God has called me to be a wife and (Lord-willing) a mother someday, and I wish to give my utmost to live a godly example for other young ladies, such as yourself--be you, 13, 16, 26 (or older!).
Along with a different subject post each week, I will still continue to review old books, new books, and even some upcoming releases! If you have a recommendation, send it my way! Books are definitely my "one weakness." :]
Alas, I must bid you adieu for now.
Aaaaaaaannnd leave you with this adorable ball of fur:
