So Thankful with Simple Stories

It’s a happy day in my house today. My boy is coming home for the weekend, and I am anxious to get into the kitchen.Β  I like to make up for the lousy dorm cafeteria food when he is here, so I’ve got big plans, and a busy day ahead for me. But it’s all part of the big plan, if you know what I mean….

I keep hoping that if I bribe him with enough food, he’ll be willing to come home more often.


So I’ve got big dinner plans in the works for today. I’m even going to attempt to tackle a pie……

…… cause I’m thinking a pie will really do the trick…

Sharing a card with you that I made recently for the Simple Stories blog and CHA booth, featuring their beautiful new I AM collection. Because today I truly AM so thankful!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy weekend, everyone!

  10. Awww, cute post. How did the pie work? When my son comes home from his international adventures we will be having a good old American cookout. He posted he really missed nachos and a beer on SuperBowl Sunday, lol. Love your card with the bold banner and that hidden tag.
