What I'm Reminiscing About....
Last year....at this time...how sad I was...how unhappy at work..how stressed...how sick....
and now, every day, I can't feel and share enough gratitude.....
sometimes you really have to go through tough times to appreciate the good ones that come along
So grateful....so blessed...so happy to be here now
What I'm Loving...
My Christmas Spirit this year....I started watching the Hallmark Christmas Movies on November 1st.
I lit my holiday candles every day and I am not stopping
I am holding on to every last ounce of spirit through New Year's
I mean...wouldn't you love this view from your desk?
and I am LOVING that my girls are playing together....it is so cute to watch them enjoying each other...
