September Ministering // Friendship Tags.


September...glorious September is finally here!

I just lit my Pumpkin Pie candle today for the first time this season and ahhhh....things are looking up.

Every year around this time I share 3 of my very favorite recipes EVER for: 
Zuchinni bread, Pumpkin bread and Banana bread. 

You can find them HERE.
{They're seriously dELisH!}

That got me thinking of a fun little tag that I created into this month's Ministering // Friendship tag!!


Attach this tag to a homemade loaf of bread OR....cheat and buy a yummy one from the store.  I promise your friends won't be mad 😏


The point is....just show someone this month that they're loved.  And appreciated.  And that you're thinking of them.

It really doesn't take much!

These tags are FREE to download and you can find them

Be sure to tag me on Instagram @azmarci if you use them! I'd love to see your photos!

This {Labor Day} Weekend:

* Friday morning I received the most thoughtful package in the mail from a lovely blog reader. 


The fact that we've never met, yet this person decided to spread sunshine from her home in California to mine in Arizona, truly warmed my heart and made my day.  


I practically cried reading her sweet note.

There are so many good people in this world!!!!

* London came home from school on Friday afternoon and was super excited to tell me that she was the only one in her Language Arts class who got a one hundred perecent on her essay.  

I asked to see the essay from her backpack and BOY was I proud...


The fact that my child quoted M.C. Hammer makes me want to BURST with happiness.  Sometimes, as parents....we DO get it right, I guess! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

* Friday night we surprised my sister with a little adults only SURPRISE birthday dinner at Charleston's.

{Their honey butter crossaints are really TO DIE FOR!}


She turned 50!!! and one of her sons and his wife flew into town to surprise her!


It was so much fun!!
{We missed you Kirk and Adam!}

* Saturday morning we all slept in, ate breakfast around 11:30 am and worked on chores while blaring the new Taylor Swift album.  


Joe and the boys are good sports to let London and I have it pretty much on repeat all day EVERY day lately.

{It's seriously SO good though, huh?!}

* The boys and I took Cubby in to get his nails filed...


Why is he so handsome?!?

* Saturday afternoon Joe and I snuck away and saw...


Oh my gosh guys...YOU HAVE GOT TO GO AND SEE THIS!
It is the sweetest, cutest, funniest movie we have both seen in a LONG time.

Even my dad who falls asleep in every movie...stayed awake for it and loved it!

* Churchey-church on Sunday.
It was SO good to be back after being gone for a few weeks while recovering from my surgery.

We babysat my cousin's darling dog on Sunday afternoon.


London introduced him to Taylor Swift on the ipad.
{I told you we were obsessed}.


He's a Cavapoo and is he not the CUTEST?

* We spent Labor Day Monday over at Joe's brothers house with the Coombs side of the family.


The kids were on cloud 9.

It was the perfect way to say goodbye to summer.
{Even though techincally summer is still in full effect in AZ til at least October.  But you know what I meanπŸ˜‰}
