Christmas Prep (in pictures) // Random things

+JMJ+

You may have noticed a little change on the top left of Gloria In Excelsis Deo.  Yes, Emma is my real name.....a name that I love and am so grateful for.  A name has so much meaning and I have decided to use it here so that it feels more like "home."  

Also, in honor getting over 1,000 page views I've decided to do an Ask Me Anything post to be put out within the next few weeks (thanks to Catherine Hawthorn for the idea!).  If you have any questions for me, please leave them in the comment box and I will answer them in the post.  Truly: ask me anything!  I know I have only a few readers (mainly friends and family) but I still think it would be great fun!

Alright!  Onto some Christmas prep......in pictures.  I'm an on-and-off amateur photographer and I've decided to post a few pictures every-now-and-then.

I'm trying to give up sugar for health reasons.......this book has helped!

God bless and thank you for reading!  

Please pray for the unborn, especially those who may be killed by abortion during this Christmas season. 

 In the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,

Emma

    1. Hi Catherine and thanks for your questions!

      Thank you! I also love the story of St. Emma of Austria. For the longest time, I didn't think there was any known saint who bore my name. I was so happy to find out about her.

      God bless and Happy Advent!

      God bless you as well!

  3. Here's a very in debt question, (Just kidding) Did you get to have a croissant that your brother and sister are working on in the second to the last picture? They look good.
