Gratitude for my Girl Crush

Just this morning my heart took a turn to gratitude. With Thanksgiving being so close and Christmas literally around the corner I have made a vow to force myself out of our hectic pace and make the time to enjoy all of the goodness that is uniquely mine.

A warm home on a cold, rainy day.

Kids that want to splash in the rain and hold my hand while they're running.

A bath tub full of dirty water and a clean dog begrudgingly being "beautified" by a giggling seven year old holding a comb and a hair dryer.

This IS the good stuff. I absolutely know it and have allowed myself to overlook it a little too often lately.

And then there's my Girl Crush, Emily.

I use her lunch box note cards to brighten peanut butter crackers and apples.

Her JDC|monthly grocery lists, weekly calendars and note cards help keep me beautifully organized and inspired.

The Princess and I made glitter letters this weekend from her November project.

I love her a whole heckuva lot and she has really outdone herself this time.

The Thankful Tree she featured today will be in my home by the weekend. Mark my words.  It has a perfect home on the console table behind the sofa.

I absolutely love this idea and love her for sharing it. Many thanks to you, Emily!

You know what? I think we will make a Thankful Tree! What a wonderful idea! I'll be gathering and drying some sticks today, and sitting down with each child, one at a time, to create the "leaves". :) THANK YOU EMILY!
