I always love these posts. We have so much to be thankful for! I should go back to gift-listing. :)

You have inspired me to get back into my gift-listing... it has been mostly neglected lately... thanks for reminding me to be thankful in the amazing times as well as the difficult ones.
p.s. I totally pull pieces off plants in the park nearby to adorn my coffee table! :)

Sometimes I am melodramatic... Bear with me. My favorite thing is finding hope in hard places. If you enjoyed something (or not) I would love to hear from you! You can make me very happy by leaving a comment :)
