Encouraging Hearts and Home: It's December 1st!

With today being the first of December my thoughts have firmly turned to Christmas and all the prep involved in getting ready.  Usually I would have had all my shopping and most of my wrapping done by now but I'm a bit behind this year... mostly because my husband and boys have very few (if any!) gift ideas.  Perhaps you are planning for the holiday season too.  I picked out a few features from last week's party that I hope will help.  

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  


Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

Linking Up With: Thinking Out Loud,


  1. Thank you for featuring my post this week! 😊
    Blessings, Jennifer

  2. I am excited to collect holiday recipes in these posts and share a few of ours!

  3. What a sweet idea for the delivery drivers. I love that and I think I may even steal that one!


  4. I suppose it's a good thing that you already have so much you can't even think of anything you'd want for Christmas. Thanks for the party.

    1. That's what I figured too and my guys are all pretty great about not wanting "stuff" just to have it.

  5. Good morning, Joanne! Isn’t that a great idea of leaving snacks for delivery drivers?! Thank you for all the inspiration from your party. Happy December!

  6. Thanks so much for hosting. I linked up with 21 and 22.

  7. Happy December, my friend!


  8. I love this idea of networking. I'm always checking out blogs and trying to return some of that support that receive on mine.

    1. Me too! I've even learned that most of the time I can click on the name of the person leaving a response and that often leads me to their blog.

  9. Good morning Joanne! Thanks so much for featuring my December Habit Tracker, sorry my comment is a little late. I love the idea of leaving some snacks out for our delivery drivers. Have a fabulous weekend
    xx, Maria
