Happy Monday! I struggled for a long time with what I wanted to write about for today’s post, so I ended up deciding on talking about two different things that have been on my mind the last couple of days. First of all, I am sure many of you have heard about Hurricane Matthew and its effects here on the coast of Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina. While I don’t live on the coast, my area was still affected to some degree by the storm. We dealt with rain, strong winds, and power outages here in the Midlands, and just seeing the hurricane’s effects here kept those closer to the storm on my mind all weekend. Although my area of the state was extremely blessed by being saved from the worst part of the storm, many areas near me were not so fortunate, so they are constantly in my prayers.
I don’t know nearly as much as I should about the widespread damage all over the state, but I know that we are dealing with downed trees and power lines, possible flooding of rivers and lakes and the like, closed roads, and damaged houses, and all other things that you deal with when you are faced with a hurricane. But I know that we are so blessed, not only in my city but all over, because it could have been so much worse than it was (remember Hugo?). So, I am keeping everyone in my prayers, but I am also thanking the Lord that He saved us from even more destruction.
Now for the other thing that has been on my mind. For the last few days I have been toying with the idea of adding fashion to my list of things I talk about on this blog. I love wearing cute outfits, although I’m not exactly the best at coming up with them, and I’ve been thinking it would be fun to share them with all of my readers. I don’t really know anything about fashion blogging, however, so it would be a learning process for me. I haven’t actually made a decision yet; I might just try it out and see where it goes from there, but I would really love y’alls opinion! What do you think? Should I add fashion to my list of things to blog about?
And now on to the linkup!
First, I’m featuring JoDitt from JoDitt Designs and her post with a sneek peek of her all new coloring book!
