Give Thanks

Wednesday, November 27, 2013



Thanksgiving is tomorrow here for us in the good old US of A. I know for many of us, we celebrate it in the true sense of its name - celebrating gratitude and being thankful, and for that reason it's a favorite of mine. I have much to be thankful for. Of course my kids top that list and the fact that they are healthy and kind and sweet and funny (and give me blogging material when I run out of ideas). My family and friends and my new pups Marla, and the fact that I am able do what I love to do and that allows me (sometimes forces me - which is good) to be constantly creative and searching the little world around me. This blog is part of all of that. I know this teeters on sounding really schmaltzy, but it's officially the holidays so I get a pass, but I there's a family of sorts here too, and definitely really wonderful friends and it's a part of my day that I enjoy and I am truly grateful for. So being as we won't be breaking bread tomorrow and sitting around the table under the glaring spotlight of saying what we are thankful for (where i'd say all of you of course) I thought I'd say that bit here. I am signing off for the rest of the week to enjoy and bask in all the precious things in my life, but I will certainly be thinking of you and yours and wishing you a wonderful holiday. 

I am also grateful for these awesome rustic graphics I found via we lived happily ever after.

  2. Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I think any time is a good time to stop and think of the good things in your life and be grateful for that. Happy Thanksgiving, Christine! Have a wonderful time with your loved ones! xo
