November First

Ahhhhhhh! It is November First and someone {okay fine, Sarah} has the flu. Please pray with me that she wakes up feeling better!

On that note, with today being the first day of November, I am going to try mentioning something I am thankful for in every post until Thanksgiving Day. This holiday season is going to be a challenge for me. I love the holidays and I am very well aware that holidays are different in different countries. I want to be thankful for each and every detail no matter how I feel! I remember seeing a picture last year that said, “what if you woke up with only the things you thanked the Lord for yesterday?” Thought-provoking, isn’t it?!  I am sure Sarah will join in later when her mind has cleared a little!


“Have barely moved from here all day. Consequently, there will be no September or October recap today…”

“Well of course, I have to start with my Thanksgiving baby since I spent the entire day Thanksgiving 2008 in pain and agony! This smile can make any rough day better and I am so thankful the Lord gave her to me, four years ago Thanksgiving Day (+ 4 hours)!”

“Sometimes you just have to stop fighting the inevitable and just start the almost-four-year-old in bed with you instead of rearranging during the night. And yes, we are sleeping on our way-cool-pull-out-sofa.”

“Full time employee by day, wedding planner by night, and fiancé somewhere in the mix. It’s a busy life!”

“I love how sometimes you don’t notice something about about a picture until after you’ve taken it. I didn’t realize I was capturing my own reflection, I simply thought a picture looking through a magnifying glass would be neat.”

“I know I will sleep better alone…but with Dada gone, I am a little tempted to get both girls and snuggle with them in this big bed!”

“I ended up with this picture tonight {was planning on a different picture, but I didn’t bring my camera home…oh well!} This is where I stayed all morning anyways, I haven’t been feeling the greatest and I love my bed. I didn’t stay here all day though,  I also cleaned the house and chatted with Marie!”
