What's Up Wednesday (September Edition)

Happy Wednesday friends! I am excited to link up with MelShaeffer, and Shay for the "What's Up Wednesday" Link up! I have so enjoyed reading these ladies posts and am excited to join in! It is so fun to connect with so many other ladies who are doing this each month! If you would like to join in and have a blog, just answer the questions above!

What We're Eating this Week... 
With fall officially starting this past week I have been looking at more fall fruits and veggies. While I eat a variety of fruits and veggies throughout the year I love to try and eat "in season" and the apple trees this time of year are abundant. Do you remember the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Well I was shocked to research and learn how many health benefits that there are of apples! You can read my post about 15 benefits of eating apples by clicking HERE about just a few of the amazing benefits from this food!

What I'm Reminiscing About... 
The entire week of fun and excitement of spending time with friends at the Magic Kingdom and my sister on the Disney Cruise. I recapped yesterday the beautiful day at the Magic Kingdom with my dear friends Kori and Ali and can't wait to share more from this trip in the upcoming weeks!

What I'm Loving... 
Cozy warm fires and the start of autumn at the cabin. I am trying to grasp every single moment that we have left here before we leave camp. 

What I've Been Up To...
August was such a whirlwind of activity with the December Caravan Book ReleaseI have truly been so overwhelmed and blown away by the incredibly kind support and words about this book. Thank you so much for all of your love about this project! (If you are interested in purchasing December Caravan you can find it where books are sold and on Amazon and Barnes and Nobles. If you are interested in bulk/group discount orders you can find out more information HERE.) I am also really excited to share about a new book project that will be releasing soon! I will be updating more about this on the blog in the upcoming weeks!

What I'm Dreading... 
I shared on instagram yesterday that I have been struggling with a lot of pain these past seven weeks... and let's be honest... this treatment round that I am starting this week will be extremely intense! I would covet prayers for this as I am going into some of the most intense weeks and months of my life. Would you also continue to pray that all of the finances to come in for this treatment round? As I mentioned before this treatment round is extremely expensive (about $30,000 a month) and we are trusting the Lord for His provision. If you are interested in helping out financially you can find my "go fund me pageHERE

What I'm Working on... 
I have just finished up a bunch of orders that have come through in the shop (thank you!) and we are now in the process of packing up the cabin and the shop to move up to my grandmother's house. As you can imagine this is a ton of work. We would covet prayers as we transition! 

What I'm Excited About... 
While I love summer and have been dreading the end of this one for a lot of different reasons, I truly love the fall. Fall in upstate NY is one of my favorite things! If you are in the Lake Champlain region and are looking for suggestions of what to do this fall you can check out my post Fall Activities on Lake Champlain by clicking HERE.

What I'm Watching/Reading... 
I have been spending an increasing amount of time in Scripture. With the increase of pain and the discouragement of the length of this journey, I have found myself needing more and more truth that refreshes my heart and soul. 


What I'm Listening to... 
I shared this last month, but it is still the same. A couple of years ago this song was on repeat every morning and I have had it back listening to it again almost every morning and evening. I definitely have used this as the prayer of my heart these past few weeks and this summer and plan to as we enter this fall. If you are tired and weary or feel like you have been forgotten by the Lord this song is for you. 

What I'm Wearing... 
Lots and lots of scarves and these comfy red boots as the weather has turned cooler. I love scarves and the changing temperature gives me an extra excuse to use them! *smiles*

What I'm looking Forward to Next Month... 
The beautiful weather, the opportunity to speak at Indie Author Day, the opportunity to spend more time with my grandmother, cherishing the love  of family, and some exciting behind-the-scene projects I can't wait to share about.

I would love to know your answers to these questions friends! Share your thoughts below in the comments!! *smiles* Happy Wednesday!
