Ratatouille and a weekend to remember ❤

So a dear friend of my hubby's gifted us with fresh organic veggies from their garden. YUM! so I made Ratatouille, you know like the movie? It was so good! I found a recipe on food network's site that worked perfectly! And all the right veggies are in season for it so why not go to your local farmers market and pick up some stuff to make it? You won't be sorry! :-)

On to other happenings this weekend! I got some much needed girl time with one of my closest girlfriends. Such encouragement she brigs to our friendship and I cherish that! I honestly hope I offer her the same encouragement and love. Sometimes God puts a friend in your life for just a season. It's a great thing but then for reasons unknown or known you drift apart. I believe every person is in their own season and sometimes those
Seasons don't line up. Anyhow other times He places a friend by your side at thee perfect moment. You just know that God has "got you back" because
He knows your heart! He knows the kind of friends you need to live his life with! The ones who you can lift up & encourage. The ones that will lift you up & encourage you! I have many dear friends who encourage and lift me up & I love them all! I pray that i am an encouragement to them too!! There is just something about that one friend whom you grow in your faith and your walk with, who just gets YOU! :) that's a great feeling!!!
So needless to say i had a great weekend of friends, my sweet family and lake-side time! Our Father God is
Just amazing! I feel truly blessed by where He has placed us! Iowa is like heaven on earth!!! Blessing to you all!!!❤❤❤
My friend Christy and I out for girls night!!!

So true about seasons with friends. I've had some really really close ones that I've drifted from and it hurts. You miss them, but there is a plan and a purpose. I know new ones are coming too.
