Fulfilled Fridays 1 and Link-up

Welcome to Fulfilled Fridays!

A place where we can celebrate and share what makes life great.


This week was an unusual week. Miss Crafty went to camp for the first time. She was thrilled.

I didn’t miss her too much. That sounds really bad, but I completely enjoyed having one less child in the house.

I saw a side of The Inventor I never knew existed.

I know that may sound bad as a parent, but the girls are together 99% of the time. It was lots of fun discovering who The Inventor is at her core.


I saw her spend hours building with her Legos. Normally she doesn’t spend as much time with them, and her builds are simplistic buildings. Not this week. Without Miss Crafty dictating what they built, I saw multi-function robots and vehicles.

We played lots of games, put together puzzles, spent a couple hot afternoons watching movies together, made ice cream and fruit popsicles, and had lots of free time to talk.

It was definitely a fulfilling week.


Now it is your turn!

There are very few rules. You don’t have to follow me on social media or subscribe although I’d love it if you do. If you’re feeling extra generous, tell others where to find this link-up.

You don’t even have to link back but it’d be awesome if you did!

Simply share a post, recent or in the past about anything good. Perhaps it is a recipe, craft, a moment in time, something you overcame, something to inspire, or just a journal. Anything goes.

If you don’t have a blog, leave a comment and share below.

Let’s celebrate why our lives are fulfilled!!!!


And if you have a few minutes after posting your link, please spread the joy. Take some time and visit some of the other bloggers.

    I find that my grandchildren surprise me when they are alone, too. They play completely different. Isn’t it awesome to see how God made each one of them with their own creativity and skill set? ~Pamela

      It is awesome Pamela! She was so much more confident being herself this week. I’m kind of sad it is the end of the week and her sister is coming home tomorrow. Yet at the same time I’m excited to hear stories of camp and see how my other daughter grew and matured in Christ this week. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a link!

    I do enjoy when one of my children is with grandparents or somewhere else. It allows the group a whole new dynamic. I don’t ever seem to get enough time alone with each of my children. Thanks for hosting the link-up!

    Crystal, Good morning! I just wanted to remind you that the link-up over at Thee Angel Project is ready. We have some wonderful women participating this month!

    How fun! Didn’t realize you hosted link-up parties! I submitted two…one from my personal blog and one from my baking blog. How fun to check out everyone’s links! 🙂

      I just started Melody, but my plan is to host one every Friday. I’m excited to see what everyone shares too. There will be a new one tomorrow 😉 Feel free to come back and share again!
