Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! I hope your holidays are warm, loving, peaceful, spirited, and cozy.

I would like to take this time to thank all of you for reading – this blog began as a pipe dream, and while it’s not where I envisioned it to be just yet, each one of you is making a difference in my dream, and I could not be more grateful!

May your Christmas be merry and bright ❤

Happy Thanksgiving!

There is so much to be thankful for – I won’t bore you with the list, but its plentiful! Take time today (and every day!) to count your blessings – no matter how rocky the road may be at any given moment, you are still here, still alive, and still making strides to improvement (right!?)

There is so much to be grateful for, and it can be painfully easy to overlook all of that, but make a conscious effort to recognize your blessings and be thankful for them – there is ALWAYS someone with less, ALWAYS someone with worse problems, and ALWAYS hope that things can get better – and they will!

I am grateful for a lot of things, but I am especially grateful for my dog right now, and her sweet, unconditional love. We didn’t know just how in love we were gonna fall with her when we got her, but she’s brought nothing but purpose, love, happiness, and content snuggles with her, and I am grateful to Rhode Home Rescue and my friends who fostered her for introducing us to our sweet girl!

May you all have a fabulous day!

Merry Christmas!

Dear readers, merry merry Christmas!

I hope your day is wonderful, blessed, full of love and celebration with your family and friends, and also a day when you take a second to realize how lucky we are!

The grind is over, we can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor (and Santa’s!), and enjoy spending time with our loved ones.

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!

Christmas Eve

It’s still a magical time, though it was a little more magical as a child (you know, by child I mean someone who has no responsibilities and doesn’t get caught up in the hustle and bustle of holidays!)

We’re going out to eat for dinner tonight with family, and then just hanging in, enjoying our first Christmas Eve as a married couple, and our last in this house (we are moving in January!)

Saw this poem once and I really liked it. I actually can’t wait to have children to share it (and many, many other things!) with!

What do you do for Christmas Eve? We usually do dinner and then hit some friends houses, but everyone is scattering this year!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving my dear readers! You have made it onto the list of things I am thankful for… this community, the commentary and support… helps a girl feel like she’s not alone in this battle, and there is strength in numbers!

I hope you all enjoy the day with those you hold nearest and dearest to your hearts, and cherish the time spent together, being thankful for a bounty of food, a warm environment to celebrate, and the health with which to do so.

Life is a battle, but there is always plenty of things to be thankful for!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

May your day be nothing but delicious and lovely!
