i started off this morning feeling a bit grumpy.
even after yoga. (that never happens)
there is something about jason mraz's voice/lyrics that always make me feel better.
and i will be forever grateful to him for his music and his attitude.

finally took the time to cook myself a great meal.
steamed broccoli, quinoa pasta with sauce, and fried tofu. yum!

it was at my pre-birthday celebration.
and these amazing people (along with some others) made it amazing.

the blue room. i think this is my favorite room in the house.
it's cozy and the wall color always makes me happy.
and on days like today (where i'm feeling icky and not wanting to leave the house)
the blue room is perfect!

Friday, October 9, 2009

so far the only thing i'm grateful for today is my haircut.

i have had a hell of a day and don't feel like looking out for anything else to be grateful for.
and because i do realize this blog is solely for being grateful,
i will keep the rest of the bullshit someplace else.

photo project

so for the past month or so i've been toying with the idea of a photo project. i couldn't come up with anything. i was feeling uninspired but i knew that i wanted to start shooting again. then i came across this post in a blog i read. there are links to her site so i wont re-post. but i think it's a fabulous idea and thank you for it hailey...i am taking it! it just ties in beautifully with the rest of my life i am always thinking of things i am grateful for.

not positive when i'll be starting it but it will be soon. hopefully sooner than later!

now all i have to do is remember to bring a camera with me everywhere i go. because really, the days i work i can imagine it will be hard for me to shoot since i work such long hours. but, i do want to do this!
