Fall and fellowship

I'm blessed to be a part of an amazing group of people. I love our new church ministry and I love the people that represent it. I love our pastor and I love the friends we have made. And I love the ladies.

This past week, I got invited to a ladies night to have dessert, fellowship, and talk about new opportunities for ministry.

To say I was excited to be included is an understatement. I had to find something super fun to make for dessert. Inspired by my friend, pumpkin cupcakes it was.

(this is my new fun cupcake carrier. i had to have something to put them in!)

Sidenote about pumpkins:
Mind you, I am not a pumpkin person. I mean, I love pumpkins. But eating them...not so much. Like, I don't know if I've ever even had a piece of pumpkin pie, because it just doesn't look that good to me. But when Jessi brought these to bible study a few weeks ago, I fell in love. I even tried my first pumpkin spice latte. I know, I'm behind. It was good! Until the end... then it got luke warm and orange and sorta freaked me out... anyways. The point is - these are good. And pumpkin flavor is actually pretty good!

I took them over to ladies' night, and the girls liked them! In addition, we enjoyed amazing fruit salad and beautiful decorated cookies. Although my favorite part was probably the cookie dough... "no eggs!" ... by Sondra. Girl after my own heart.

We sat in her backyard, the 5 of us, and talked about life and love and ministry. We talked about encouragement and caring for others, and ways to implement that in very tangible ways. Great ideas were presented, and I'm so excited for the potential for this new ministry. Encouraging people is one thing I really enjoy, and now that I'm done with school, I'll be happier and hopefully more encouraging. :) It's all in the works right now, but I hope it can become something huge.

And I hope some of these friendships can also become something huge.
