mr. golden sun!

it’s the monday giggles…


A group of us are heading to a little place we like to call….



…not really

cuz’ it’s not the snow we’re seeking,

it’s the sun!

And we’re not going so we can visit this guy…


or that guy…


or even any of these lovely ladies…


We’re going to visit someone far more special than any of these!!

And our entire group CANNOT wait!

How fast can you take us there?

So, as soon as we can hitch a ride

(or board a plane)

we will have the




all together!


“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,” Psalm 30:11

Who are you hoping to share the golden sun with today?

hugs n’ blessings to everyone dancing under the sun together!

Falling for it.

“What do you think?”

Loaded question on a 3hugs&blessings Thursday!


Especially today because it’s a beautiful fall day in Erie, Pa.

And fall here is stunning!

Beautiful fall foliage by a white burch tree.

The trees surrounding our Bay Area & local State Park, Presque Isle rarely disappoint!

Not to mention the grape vineyards in nearby North East, Pa, our local apple orchards, & Paschke’s Mum Farm!



But it’s our blessings that really outshine even this!

So for today I shall rake through all the ones I’ve been given and squeeze an extra hug into these 3!

  1. Morning walks (with Helen) to Mass at the the Carmelite Monastery.
  2. My friend Tom calling to share the exciting parts of his day with me.
  3. Fall means cider season & Fuhrman’s Cider made in Erie, Pa is officially being pressed!!
Fuhrmans Cider! Fresh pressed in Erie, Pa

Yummy in my rumblin’ tummy!

“Rumble. Rumble.”

These hugs n’ 3 blessings are for you, as I’m praying you’ll count your blessings too!!
