Friday Five

Here are my favorite things this week...

1. My new hair cut...

I went a little shorter! It was time for a change....

2. My friend, Sharon, gave me this pretty pumpkin soap dispenser for my guest bathroom. She knows how I love to decorate for the seasons.



3. My soccer player, Landon.  He had some goals this week.


4. My view this week...

And number five is going to require two photos....

My nephew, Will, took command of the Chatham Artillery in Savannah. His unit will be deploying to Afghanistan in December.

Here is Will with the former commander along with his wife, Jennifer and baby daughter, Greta.  Please say a prayer for his safety while oversees. I hate that he is going to miss so much of Greta's first year. Our service men make big sacrifices to protect our country. Jennifer is also in the National Guard. She plans to retire in two to three years when she has in her 20 years. And yes she still has weekend training she must attend while Will is gone. Family and friends are stepping up to care for baby Greta on those weekends.  If Nana lived closer, she would be glad to take care of that sweet baby girl!!

Like your new haircut! Will pray for your nephew. I know our military gives up so much for this country and we need to pray, pray, pray for them. Have a great Friday and upcoming weekend.....when we welcome autumn!

Arlene, I really like your shorter do! The snapshot of Landon at his soccer game is gorgeous with the sunset as the backdrop. Offering up prayers for Will, his unit, and his family.

I like the new do. Sometimes we just need a new do. A new season calls for new hair...after all, we need it shorter for scarves. Hubby doesn't like mine, but I love it so he will have to get over it.
Oh the sacrifices our good people are making which I think is why sometimes I have a hard time keeping my tongue quiet to all the idiots out their in La La Land.

Arlene, your new hairdo is so pretty. It looks fantastic on you. I would love a cut like that but unfortunately my hair goes wavy with this humidity. Love that pumpkin soap dispenser...so cute. Landon is a doll...congrats on the goals scored. The beach photo looked wonderful...isn't the beach relaxing and renewing? Congratulations to Will! This is a big honor and responsibility and he will do great. He and his unit will definitely have my prayers. Anyone in the military is family to me. RJ
