(30 Days of Thanksgiving} Midwives

I’ll keep this short so that I don’t slip into preachy mode (too much lol), but I am thankful for midwives. My midwives gave me the opportunity to have the experience I wanted on my schedule and not following the deadlines of a hospital. (In my opinion,...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} A Day Off

Today I am thankful for a job that allows me to take a little time off when I need it. Getting the reviews ready for the gift guide giveaway was challenging… especially when so many items came in much later than anticipated… and it feels really good to...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Knitting

Today I am thankful for my ability to knit. I first taught myself to knit around the age of 15. I followed along with a video I checked out from the library. That first venture into knitting ended in one lopsided scarf and and the back for a sweater vest full of...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Veterans

Today I am thankful to all veterans for their service in protecting our country, our lives, and our rights. My own husband and dad were war veterans… and I think it goes without saying that I am very thankful that they came home. For the veterans and their...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Counting

Today I am thankful for my ability to count. I don’t necessarily use it some days… There were supposed to be 30 days of giving thanks, but I sort of missed a few days. Like four. So, today I will make up for it with four lists of four favorite things that...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Readers

Today I am thankful for my loyal readers. Blogging has been a great way to release a stressful day or share something I’m excited about. I know that I have not always been a consistent blogger and my mind wanders all over the topics, but I appreciate that so...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Home

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Family

If you’ve been around here awhile, you know that I struggle with some of the members of my family. If you also come from a family with a long history of mental illness, you probably understand… sometimes it’s best for your own sanity to just walk...

{30 Days of Thanksgiving} Health

In honor of the month of Thanksgiving, I have decided to write about one thing I’m thankful for each day of this month. I encourage other bloggers to join in with me and for readers to comment below with their own reasons to give thanks. As I’m sitting...

On Top of the World

Can’t get this song out of my head today! The song is On Top of the World by Imagine Dragons. It’s almost as ear-worm worthy as their song Demons. What song have you most recently had on repeat in your...

Xander’s Third Birthday

This past weekend we had a few family members over for a simple cake and ice cream gathering. I was aiming for one of those informal, no-fuss type of gatherings. I can’t do no fuss… Originally, it was going to be Friday evening on Xander’s actual...

Our Day of Big Savings!

Yesterday was one of those days that made me understand the exhilaration felt by extreme couponers. We have a shopping strategy that centers around finding the best deals… and having all our city’s major stores within a couple blocks of each other makes it...
