A new look!

Have you noticed? Something is different around here! I thought it was time to update the look of our meeting place here in blog land. What do you think? All the information is the same and is in the same place so don't let the new look confuse you.

I hope we will continue to use this as an additional way to connect and encourage one another. Remember that we can share recipes, prayer requests and other information related to moms here on this blog. All you have to do is email me and I will put it on here for everyone to read. It's that simple. I received an email just this week with some fun popsicle recipes that I thought I would post. (Thanks Jenn!)

I pray everyone has a fun and safe summer. I'd love to see you at the Tuesday playgroups we will be having at different host homes around the area as well as the Friday ParkDays we have at various parks. Both are great ways to connect with other moms and allow your kids time to run off some energy. It's all free and you can come and go when you need to. So please stop by!

And, if the sun ever decides to come out and stay try these tasty popsicles!
