Heart on my Sleeve and Warm Apple Cake

Hurtful words....oh how they sting. And once spoken, you can say I am sorry, but you really cannot take them back. I know I have done my share of saying hurtful words, and I am ashamed that I did. Altho I do tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, so I allow my heart to be wide open most of the time. Given the choice, I think I would rather wear my heart on my sleeve than be cold hearted and stand-offish. I seem to be wearing my heart on my sleeve today, not sure why...but I need to shake it. Its a beautiful day outside, fall is in the air, my favorite time of the year. What is your favorite time of the year?

I think I know what has me feeling this baby girl is leaving on Monday for 8 days in Jamaica!Yes...the child who is deathly afraid of elevators, is flying to Jamaica! I am so excited for her, yet so worried. I know I just need to put it in God's hands....He will take care of her!!! She has never been away from home for that long...Lord help me LOL. You would swear she is a baby...well she is MY baby, even though she is 22!!
Isn't she pretty? Yeah, I think so too! Have fun in Jamaica Addie.....have the time of your life! This is the resort she is going to....

I think my girls at work love me...look what they picked up for me the other day....yep they do listen when I talk! Thanks Kristy and Angelique!!!
I love these and search for them every Halloween!
