grateful.


Happy Tuesday, loves!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is upon us... it's a shame that we, as Americans, collectively reminisce on this single day each year about our blessings, when we're such a privileged, fortunate society.

This year, in 2010, I'm reminded of the bountiful blessings and rewards that shower my life everyday. I'm thankful for a best friend in a boyfriend, whom I love more everyday. He spoils me rotten and serves as a constant reminder of what love should be. I'm grateful for a niche of the most incredibly loving and understanding friends and family anyone could desire. I have a loving little doglet who brightens my everyday. I'm grateful for a faith in my Lord that drives me and brings hope and comfort and challenge to my life. I am blessed to have a career--not merely a job--surrounded by brilliant and inspiring co-workers in a beautiful and uplifting environment. I'm grateful for my creativity, and love of learning. I have a running vehicle, warm and cozy home, beauty in the world around me and a mind full of dreams that I am supremely confident will not only be achieved--but will pale in comparison to what actually unfolds in my life. I'm grateful to live in this beautiful, free country, courtesy of the selfless men and women who fight on our behalf everyday. I'm thankful for the trials and challenges I can learn from.

I am blessed. You are blessed. Take time to recognize this... not just this week, but every week.

So without much more chatter, what are you thankful for?


Have a wonderful, loving, blessed Thanksgiving!!

    and to answer your question, I'm obsessed. LOVE THEM. a little painful today to break in, but totally worth it. They're beautiful in the picture on the TB site but unblievably gorgeous in person!
