This post perhaps is a bit late... since Thanksgiving was last month. However, before the moment passes by, I wanted to share how thankful I am. There are days where things can feel so rough and busy, hard and difficult but the fact of the matter is that there's always something to be thankful for.

Today I have a few that came to mind so I wanted to journal it. I opened my freezer and it is full of food... I am thankful I have choice on what we can cook and eat tonight. I thank my husband for being such an amazing provider to our family. His job can be at times draining but he continues to push through in order to provide for this family. I am thankful that this morning I opened my eyes and I have the opportunity to live this day. I don't have a terminal illness or sick children, my husband, kids and I are healthy and we have a beautiful home, we have a warm place to call our own and for this I am THANKFUL! God, if you can hear me... THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Student of the Week

Our youngest is student of the week! We're so proud. She got a poster to fill out and color that shared the tidbits of who she is and the things she l♥ves. We even got the opportunity to add some sparkling glitter to the poster! This is her first time... I recall doing the same for my oldest for first and second grade.

We pasted a photo on her poster that we took this past July during our San Diego vacation. I thought it would be fun to share it here. Olivia didn't want to ride the "boat" by herself so I joined her, and from the looks of it she had a great time!

Cheers! ♥

How to Be Alone

I ♥ed this poem. I am not very good at being alone. In my case of course, I am married with kids but being home and working from home does come with a dash of "alone" at times. When there's no work I find myself unable to make myself useful... but I'm learning.

Pottery Painting

I love painting with the girls at the As You Wish pottery painting shops. This time instead of watching them paint I decided to paint a little something for a friend. It looks yummy!
