I am so grateful for so many things and so many people that it would be impossible to list them all. I would like to share some of my favorites and some of my most surprising blessings :)
above all else i am thankful for Jeff, my husband. he supports me, encourages me, laughs with me, challenges me, and loves me in ways i could never have imagined. he makes all of the other good in my life possible.
he is my miracle.
I am thankful for my parents. they are my best friends and they are always there when i need them. They have been unfailing in their support and encouragement for me to find my passion in life. It still needs a little tweaking but i do believe i have found my niche at last.
I am thankful for my friends and family. especially the ones i can laugh with and go on adventures with :)
oddly enough i am thankful for the project life album i made this year. capturing a year in our lives has been almost therapeutic for me. It has not only made me see how fantastic our lives really are but it's made me live each day on purpose and it's made me more comfortable in my own skin. I used to only scrapbook the great pictures and if i thought i looked fat in a picture it would stay locked up in the computer. now that i have an entire page or two to fill up every week i include everything, fabulous looking date nights, bad hair days, bathing suit pictures, all of it. i'm much less critical of myself, which makes me healthy and happier and i've got a better appreciation for how my husband sees me ♥
I'm grateful for my blog, all of my blog readers, and the community over at Studio Calico. In real life i have one friend that scrapbooks. just one. It is so amazing to me to be able to share my art, rambling thoughts, and whatnot with so many wonderful, uplifting, and inspiring like-minded people.
to wrap this list up, i am thankful that for the first time in about 9-10 years, i'm not cooking thanksgiving dinner today! I'm going out to eat! no messy kitchen and dishes to distract me from decorating my christmas tree this weekend :)
so thank you to all of you.
Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.
