Video Diary: Thankful

Thursday, November 22, 2012


It's thanksgiving! Do you have the round the table "say what you are thankful for" at dinner? We do and I think it's one of the reasons why I love thanksgiving so much. It's not often we require and willfully share shout outs for all the things we are so grateful to have. I am definitely thankful for those two little boys in the video, M+L, aka Milo Pollux and Luca Sparrow. They do things that confound me one minute - like laying down in the middle of the sidewalk, and profound me the next - like with their ability to live in each moment; to lay down and wait for something to happen because they know it will, maybe something like a funny flock of birds flying by. Something on my own I might not notice  or more so appreciate, in my journey from point a to point b. But because of them I don't miss out on all these little big things. I am also grateful for my bigger boy, Mr. Fisher, that apparently only likes to be photographed in costume these day (hence no photo. grrr) - I used to think it was a little weird when parents would refer to their kids as their best friend but now I get it. And I am super grateful for all of you who visit and read this here blog of mine. I literally wake up every morning excited to see what you all have been up to, knowing I will start my day inspired. xo
