hi Tracey! i miss you! how are you and the family doing? i pray all is well with you. i will definitely be checking this link out. thank you for your wonderful ideas and for the link. so, what have you been up to? are you getting ready for fall? i know i mention this every time i leave you a message, but i can't wait for summer to leave. it has been so hot. with the combination of the heat and the bad smoke from the fires, i have been having it kind of rough. the fires have really been making the air so bad. the smoke was just dreadful. even when my windows were closed, you could still smell the smoke. this fire was really bad. where i live, i could actually see the flames burning the mountain top. the people who lived closer to the mountain and in the area had to evacuate. i felt so bad for them and their homes. also for the beautiful trees and those precious animals. it has been rough. thank God it's cleared. my lungs were hurting. but i'm glad it's over now. it seems like every year we have to deal with this. how are your beautiful girls? have they started school already? my son has. i miss him already. well, i pray that you will have a beautiful blessed week and i'm wishing you and your family the best. keeping you in my prayers always my beautiful friend.

God Bless,

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.
