While most birds are flying south for the winter, I feel a pull to head north for the fall -- or at least for a couple of days. I always feel drawn to Tennessee this time of year, so I am thankful for an opportunity to visit Middle Tennessee this weekend. I will be speaking at a ladies day Saturday morning at the White Bluff, Tenn., Church of Christ. We will be exploring the topic "It's Good to Be Home," so I hope we will all leave with ideas and inspiration for tending our nests. Please join us if you live nearby!
This sweet little birdie has been gracing my front door for the past few weeks -- the wreath a thoughtful gift from a family friend when we lost my mother a month ago.

Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts."
