grateful for the first cupcake i've had in SIX MONTHS!
(well, i had two. and they weren't the first cupcakes i've had. but they were the first REAL cupcakes i've had. regular flour and refined sugar and all. and although i'm paying for it with a sore hip and a breakout, it was DELICIOUS!)

this is the warmest blanket ever.
i made it for tony for his birthday.

so now it's a SUPER warm blanket!

and it's been FREEZING here this week!

slow flow yoga.

i've been needing this.

i haven't done slow flow yoga in probably two weeks. i guess i felt like i just couldn't slow down enough to do it. but thankfully i did it today. it was harder than it normally is...probably because i needed it so bad.

i need to work on my flexibility!

i am grateful for my marriage.

although some times it is trying
and things get rough
we love each other a ridiculous amount
and i couldn't ask for anything more.

Thursday, November 26, 2009


today i am grateful for all of this amazing food!
(it was delicious!)

i know that it is thanksgiving and you are supposed to say what you are thankful/grateful for.
but i think it is something that everyone should incorporate into their lives on a daily basis.

it's just like valentines day...
why would you show someone love on one day just because it's a "holiday"?
show love everyday!

and show gratitude everyday as well!

i hope everyone had an amazing day!

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Friday, November 13, 2009

sometimes it's really hard to take a photo of something i am grateful for.

not because i cant come up with anything.

but because i'm so involved in the moment that i dont even think about taking my camera out.
(that's pretty much how it's been all week).

but today i met my mom in grand rapids for a day of shopping. and i am so grateful for her. for everything she has ever done for me. for always being there for me and trying to understand me (even tho sometimes i know it's hard).

I LOVE YOU MOM!

it's been a long day but i have a few things to be grateful for today!
i decided to pick this.
it's nice to get compliments. and just recognized for something you do.

bryan photographed our wedding and my trash the dress photos. (in fact my TTD photos are still up on his site!) he's awesome to work with, and super talented. so him asking for my help for a project he's working on is awesome!

check out the project here.
