Happy Sunday friends! It’s been a couple of week since I’ve shared my Mitten Moments with you. Mitten Moments are those simple, heartwarming experiences that bring joy and meaning to our lives. They are the little things that make us smile, laugh, and feel grateful.
This weekend has been a blend of crisp air and sunshine! Big Al and I finished all the outdoor lights. I’m done decorating, inside too, so I’m feeling accomplished! Believe it or not, it’s time I start wrapping gifts, but not before we celebrate Thanksgiving!
My Personal Mitten Moments
- Big Al had a birthday this week! What an amazing, dad, papa, friend, brother and husband he is! He is my biggest supporter and help when it comes to my blog and he definitely deserves to be celebrated!
- We helped our youngest son decorate his first tree. A few new ornaments and a few hand-me-downs, made for the perfect first tree!
- It’s Sunday and that means football in our house! The Detroit Lions are having an amazing season. They are 7-2 and we are hoping for another win, today! The Lions have the NFL’s longest active drought between playoff wins and their current record is a big deal! Go Lions!
