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.

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!

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).

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.

for keeping a smile on my face all day!

my "natural face" is me looking like i'm mad or upset. so i literally have to smile in order to look happy. which sucks, because i don't ever look how i actually feel.

so grateful that my tattoo is finally finished.
(sorry mom & dad!!)
