Monday Made It & Celebrating!

Thanks to the sweet Tara for letting me link up this week. Some big things have been happening around here and I want to share and celebrate!
Every celebration needs something a little sweet. With harvest starting this past week, I spent a day baking for some family that farms and some of my husband's customers {he's an agronomist}. The results were very, very tasty! Click here or the pictures below to see the recipes! Soft-batch chocolate chip and Reese's stuffed peanut butter cookies.

Sort-of a made it... After two years and more time than I care to admit in making this portfolio...

I officially earned my Master's degree in Special Education on Friday! Nothing fun to take a picture of to show that I passed, but my portfolio made cute with KG fonts will have to do! Summer graduates do not walk until winter, so I have a bit before I go across the platform once again.

#3 is a bit of a stretch too, but another celebration... this little blog of mine has reached 1,000 followers! I can't believe the friendships, professional development, and fun this blog has brought to my life. I'm so very thankful. To celebrate I've asked some of my blogging buddies and friends to help me with a giveaway. For more information and to enter, click the picture below or click here!
