October was a good month – I think partly because it’s my birthday month! My favorite color is OCTOBER!
Our son and girlfriend came and stayed with us for a few days as they explored the area around Upstate SC. While they were here, the tiny house village had a Low Country Boil on the 14th. It was great fun and delicious.
And, while Michael and Tiana were here we took them to one of our favorite places.
And, we went to Pretty Place:
Late October we went to Lowell’s annual cousins reunion in Conway, SC. Not one photo was taken. I know, right?
We voted. Met our neighbors at the polls on a very cold morning.
We celebrated 38 years together! (Old collage below!)
I decorated for Christmas earlier than I ever have! Of course in tiny house, it doesn’t take much!
And, we went to Lake Worth, FL for an epic Thanksgiving weekend.
We had 21 people for dinner in our Airbnb. Everyone was safe and stayed healthy. We had a wonderful time!
And, what would Thanksgiving be, in South Florida, without an Iguana on the wires?
Tiny House Village had a Progressive Cocktail Party, without the cocktails!!!
The ugly sweater winners. Lowell & Karen
The whole gang!
We had some beautiful sunrises and we went out in search of the Christmas Star (we did see it!).
Lowell & I ended December with a Christmas weekend trip to Hunting Island State Park. We loaded up Gracee and went for a 6 hour road trip. It was a wonderful weekend! We ate at Huddle House for Christmas Brunch and both got stomach aches!!!! But that only lasted a few hours. The rest of the time was great!
2020 has ended and it surely has been a year for the books. I’m gladly saying good-bye to you, 2020. Abundance was my one-word 2020 and the Lord abundantly blessed us every day of the year. We have stayed healthy. We have traveled a bit. We have made new friends and welcomed new neighbors. Has our family suffered losses? Yes, we have – but The King of Glory has been faithful and we are grateful that He reigns over our family.
Now, we welcome 2021 – I have a feeling it will be another year for the books! I am walking into it with trepidation and a whole lot of prayer. I have chosen a One Word 2021 – it is a call for action on my part and I plan on being faithful to that call. I’ll reveal my word next week.
See you next year! xo
