Subconsciously I seem to look for coincidences, or maybe they look for me. I don’t know. Vince often just shakes his head when I’m telling him one of my crazy stories but these things make me so happy when they happen, or, maybe they’re only happening in my head. No matter, they make me smile and days like this past week, a smile is a smile, no matter how it happened.
This morning when I looked at Facebook, my “memory” was that I had made pumpkin gingerbread five years ago today.
Seeing that picture made me want to stop packing and make pumpkin gingerbread but I was about 99% sure those pans were packed and the last thing I need to do is start unpacking so I kinda put it out of my mind.
We were in the sewing room packing and I came across two Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Lavishea lotion bars.
I love these bars and this time of year, that Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin is my favorite. I used some and keep getting a whiff that smells like pumpkin bread.
We were still packing about 1 p.m. and Vince wanted to stop and go eat fish. We did and when we drove back down the driveway, we passed Vince’s little cleaning station. He had packed pressure cookers, bowls, pots, electrical appliances yesterday – all from upstairs but looked what he left out.
I will be fixing lunch for the movers so I think I’ll make pumpkin gingerbread for them.
Isn’t it funny when all those things come together like that? It always makes me feel like I’m just supposed to make pumpkin gingerbread soon.

Definitely meant to be! Beautiful pans.
WOW! That is too amazing!!
I was hoping for the cookie molds, but the fancy pumpkin bread pans are good too! 🙂
Andrea in MO says
I’m also dying to know where the cookie molds are!
Judy Laquidara says
You and me both. The kitchen, laundry room, two extra bedrooms and sewing room are packed. All the suspected hiding places ant no sign of them.
I LOVE those kinds of coincidences, however they happen! What an unexpected touch of happiness – for you and for us!!!
TuNa Quilts says
Mmm! Pumpkin gingerbread sounds yummy. Can you post the recipe?
Elizabeth Rodgers says
Yes, please give us the recipe.
That is quite the coincidence!
I love things that are just meant to be.
Susan Nixon says
Coincidence? Or providence? =) Only the movers will tell.
How fun for you! (Around here we say coincidences are miracles where God chooses to remain anonymous!)
Nelle Coursey says
What a great story!
It is definitely a sign that you should make the pumpkin gingerbread.
I agree that it is a sign you are to make the pumpkin bread.
Amy Makson says
No doubt that destiny wants you to make pumpkin ginger bread!
