Gratitude Friday

I have so much to be thankful for.
This week here are some things where the volume is really loud in my heart.
  • The many drawings that are made just for me this week.
  • Finding small surprises and treasures at the the best-est walking stick, ever! crazy big pine cones, and a gum smile on the tree:)
  • Enjoying the chaos at work and the growth in myself...thankful for a conversation with my husband as I work through my humanity.
  • The burst of pink outside my window on one beautiful tree and daffodils along the sidewalks.
  • Hearing about "stone soup" Wednesdays at Maxx's school...and who got the stone and got to make a wish this week...what a sweet weekly celebration.
  • Enjoying a new work relationship with a very talented and beautiful woman who wears the title of assistant...when really she is a Co-.
  • Maxx just added: he is thankful for oatmeal at school with honey, cinnamon, and butter...mmm
Now for an amazing weekend.
What are you grateful for?

Gratitude Friday

This is an idea taken from a friend and a blog I love to follow.
I have so much to be thankful for.
This week here are some things where the volume is really loud in my heart.

  • The beautiful days here in Portland and the signs of Spring.
  • A sweet new babysitter, who is just getting to know us.
  • Kurt's new job...which has re-opened a door to something he loves to do.
  • Maxx's songs when he does not know anyone is listening.

My Spring Come Back!

Oh my... how long has it been?
I am going to take some of the other Mama's ideas that I have seen in blog land and post some thoughts and or pictures at least 2 times per week. I can do this!!!
My blog come back!!!

A little update...moved across country again...

this time to the magical Portland, Oregon. We really really really really really really really really really love it here!

Personally I feel at home for once. More comfortable with me and who I am. I am okay with where I am at... and am soooo excited about my future. My senses have been so heightened since we have moved here...

Examples are:
  1. Meeting someone I work with, who met their spouse at the very same place I met Kurt...and we both got married on the same day same year. We have lots of things in common...I must know her from another life. I feel very comfortable talking to her, like a sister.
  2. I see a friend all over town from behind and walk up to see their face... it is not them, in fact they live in another find out that they are looking to move her.
  3. Some of my favorite blogs I have followed for a couple of years...these mothers live in Portland, other parts of the Pacific Northwest.
  4. Some of my favorite artists like Nikki McClure are here in the Pacific Northwest.
  5. Lots of things in common with lots of beautiful people here.
