From the camera... my planner spread for this week

Saturday was a busy day of yard work

I also found two dresses for my Style Dots Conference that's coming up in July. I am leaning towards the one on the left (the cold shoulder one); and then the jewelry that I will be wearing. Bonus, the hubs loves both dresses!!

What I'm wearing today... a white tank top and black shorts

One of my simple pleasures... peaceful nights sitting sitting on the deck

On my prayer list... family and friends

A favorite Bible verse, devotion or quote for today...

In closing...Thank you for stopping by. I hope your week ahead is filled with lots of blessings!
