Friday Fave: My New Ride

For the past twelve years, I’ve driven a red 1999 Honda CRV. Recently, a friend I’d not seen in five years tracked me down in the produce section of Publix because she’d seen my CRV and knew I was there. This is why I decided to feature my new ride today—a 2008 Honda Odyssey. 

For family and friends in town, this may not be as distinctive as a bright red cherry on wheels but hopefully you’ll spot me. Just look for a black Odyssey with an open sunroof and a woman pushing the button on her steering wheel to up the volume (unless Piper is in the back, of course. 🙂

Some have asked “Why a van?”

Two reasons alone dictated this choice:

1. Grandchildren. It’s one of the safest and roomiest vehicles on the road.
2. My traveling woes. We’re hoping a DVD player playing Lark Rise to Candleford in the backseat will help in those efforts. And I’m sure the grandchildren won’t mind it either. 

Have a great weekend, everyone! 

My Friday Faves

Hot off the press!

Nov/Dec/Jan 2012 Artful Blogging…Visually Inspiring Online Journals

Monochromatic shades of white sweep over the cover like a fresh blanket of snow preparing you for the colorful feast that lies within. Initially, I purchased this magazine for its photographs but it’s the telling of blogger’s stories that keep me coming back for more. This bookzine would be a delightful gift for the creative person on your Christmas list. I found this copy at Barnes and Noble but I believe Publix and Walmart may also carry it.

Holiday 2011 life:beautiful…Faith For Your Journey

This cover is, as the magazine proclaims, is simply beautiful. Of course, it’s what we discover as we turn each page that makes this magazine truly shine. Romantic fall picnic ideas, meaningful gift ideas, a gingerbread nativity with 50 other recipes and projects—all with the purpose of glorifying Jesus Christ. Pick a copy up for yourself and someone you love. It’s a gift that keeps giving. I’ve found this magazine at Publix and Barnes and Noble.
