Who Threw Up On The Floor?

Some days of my life start with wondering which of my many animals decided to throw up all over the floor?

Not that it matters which one. But if I knew, than I could give them the evil eye for doing it. The mean mom stare one!

The good news is; today also included a happy treat. I picked up a darling little hutch. It’s so sweet. I adore the smaller size of it.


The little handle. Love it!!!!


The best part of today, was spending some mother daughter time with my oldest daughter Gabriella. She drove with me to go pick up the hutch. I love my girl. Finding time to just visit and laugh with your adult child is precious. I promise…….

“Ack”. I just realized as I was typing this my dogs ate the bacon off the counter. “Sigh”.

October 31: 365 Days

Can you believe it!! It’s been a year since I started my year of gratitude posts. Other than a few days (Romania or being sick I posted gratitude daily for a year)
What I’ve learned this year.
I can find gratitude in simple things.
I am really blessed
Romania is beautiful and heartbreaking
I have amazing friends
My family is precious.
Mexico is warm and lovely
God shows up in the small things and the big ones
I can do it.
I miss running. But still love working out
I battle depression, negative thoughts and sadness more than I hoped. But I can fight it
I love my animals
The scale is not an indicator of happiness
My husband really loves me
My faith in God sustains me
Gratitude is a great way to start and end a day
Thanks to any of you who have been along with me for some, all or any of this journey.

October 30: Art Class

I’m taking my first art class. This is a big leap forward for me. I’m usually the one people are bummed to get partnered with in pictionary.
I felt guided to take this class, push my creativity. I don’t have to be amazing, or even good. I just have to let go and try
Grateful for the challenge
