Do you ever find yourself putting something off because it isn’t perfect? I find myself avoiding this blog because I don’t have the perfect post idea or a great photo to add. I am not currently at a place in my life where I have the time or energy to create the perfectly lit, in focus, beautifully styled photos and I feel bad for even thinking that is what it takes to update this thing. I spent 11 years updating a Livejournal and I hardly ever shared pictures so what’s the difference?
Anyway, this is totally not the point of this post! I wanted to write a late note about being Thankful. The holidays are always a weird mix of rushrushrush at work for deadlines and slowing way down at home. As Fall turns into Winter, my non-work life calms down. The sun setting at 5PM probably has a lot to do with it. So here are a few things I’m extra thankful for right now:
My husband bringing home food when he knows I’m exhausted 🍂 Coffee runs on the weekend 🍂 Ryder’s first time decorating the Christmas tree (above) 🍂 Movie night 🍂 Holding hands 🍂 Leather jackets 🍂 Goodbye kisses 🍂 Belly laughs with my husband in the middle of the night 🍂 Driving around looking at Christmas decorations 🍂 Decorating our mantle 🍂 Packages at our doorstep 🍂 Quiet playgrounds 🍂 Stars Hollow candle (you guyssss) 🍂 NEW GILMORE GIRLS 🍂 Watching Ryder have a blast at swim class each week 🍂 Nightly cuddles with Alphonse 🍂 My mom’s chicken fried steak 🍂 Reuniting with so many old friends 🍂 Dead of Night coming back online 🍂 Combat boots 🍂 Deep plum lipstick 🍂 Finding the perfect Christmas gift for my best friend 🍂 Target (duh) 🍂 Falling in love with Spin class
What are some things you are thankful for this year?
