Awesome Life Friday #136

Welcome to Awesome Life Friday!

We're so looking forward to seeing what you've been cooking, creating, growing, decorating, reviewing, giving away, and thinking about this week!

While you're here, leave your posts at the other link up we co-host here - Party in Your PJs!  It starts on Tuesday evenings, and runs through Sunday.  I hope you'll join us there as well!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my vacation to Germany!  I'll be talking about it more in its own post soon - but we had such a lovely balance of sightseeing in Stuttgart, Heidelberg and Trier, along with lots of family time with my daughter and her family.

There was trick or treating with the grandkids, and a whole lot of board game nights. We spent an afternoon solving one of those Escape Room experiences. I got to (finally) meet one of our fellow writers, Lauren, and her delightful family.

I even went out one night to play bunco (for the first time) with several of my daughter's friends.

And the food!  After nearly 30 years away from Germany, I was all about tracking down and eating all my favorite things that I can't get here. Yum!!!!

Two weeks sounded like a long time before we went but in  the end, it was much too short.

While I was away, we didn't do features but I so enjoyed peeking in on what you were sharing!  Here are a few from the last couple weeks:

Threaded My Way // How to Make an Elastic Waist Skirt with Lace Ruffle

Penny's Vintage Home // Christmas Mason Jars

The Monday Box // Pumpkin Cranberry Biscotti

Country Chic Cottage // DIY Pretty Flower Paper Place Setting Ideas

Vintage, Paint & More // Easy Lacy Vintage Pumpkins
