I'm so thankful that my family was able to come down for my mom's birthday this past weekend. I love seeing them and seldom get the chance to spend time with them because we live so far away. My cousin Heather and I have always been extremely close and I cherish the time we spend together (even when she has taken Benadryl and looks like a goober (see picture!). It was great to see her and have her stay with us. And, I really appreciated that Husband got to know her a little better. I was also so happy that Caitlin (my sort-of sister) came down and we could spend some quality time together! I think it was really good for us to have that experience together!
I'm grateful for the cold front that came through Sunday night and allowed me to wear my new scarf that I got last weekend! It's the one on the left (from Urban Outfitters) and it's so cute!! I looove scarf season and it's teetering on that time of year! This weekend, there is going to be a low of 48 where I'll be and I can't wait to pull out a different scarf to sport over the weekend!
I get to go to the farmer's market after work today and I'm pumped! It has been a while since I've had the opportunity to make it to the Thursday market and I always feel like fresh produce can turn my week around. I'm glad I get to go and see what they have in season right now! Next week, our meals will be full of colorful goodies!
So it sounds totally cheesy but I'm thankful that I got some great blog shout-outs by one of my new favorite authors, her musician hubby, and her publisher! It's exciting to know that my blog is read and appreciated by others whose work I appreciate! I'm glad I can help spread the work about writers/artists that I enjoy because I know how much it means when others enjoy my own work! Thanks for the shoutouts, Shelle and Lee! Hope it gets you some good publicity ;)
Loving and learning a little more each day.
