A Savory Morsel

Hello Hopeful Friends,

I just wanted to pop in and let you know that I haven’t disappeared. I am anxious to spend more time with you; there is so much to share. I have just been busy. With a capital B. Busy! And since blogging is still so new to me, I haven’t quite figured out how to fit it in without staying up until midnight every night.

But as Beth pointed out at the LPL Simulcast this weekend: when all is said and done, we do what we want to do. Well, I know this: I will make room for writing because it’s important to me. It’s important for me to share the hope that is in me {hint, hint for those waiting for my stated blog purpose}.

In the meantime, I’ll give you a little morsel of fun from our American Girl trip. The surprise at the hotel was that we booked a room with the American Girl package. Part of the package included an ice cream sundae delivered to our room. To our even greater delight, there was not only a bowl of ice cream for Isabelle, but also a smaller one for her doll, Samantha. The ice cream was delivered on a tray with all the fixings and Isabelle got to make her own sundaes.

She added grandma’s brownies to make them extra special and tasty.

ISABELLE: Mommy, do you think I could have Samantha’s ice cream if she doesn’t want it?

ME: Barely able to answer yes because I was laughing so hard.
