Joys 2/29-3/6

My favorite things…

This week I’m celebrating, the Bubby. This little girl wakes me up with kisses everyday and makes me feel like the luckiest human on earth each time I walk through the door. When I got her her harness was 5 times smaller and I wish I could say the pitch of her bark was higher but its not, she still squeaks when she’s excited! The treasure of loving her through these almost 12 years has brought joy to my soul and I look forward to many more.


This week I am grateful for so many things but here is one for each day…

I am grateful for laughter at an event with silly friends on a night I needed to laugh.
I am grateful for Shana’s partnership in our many endeavors.
I am grateful for making a new friend at work an possibly a new hair stylist…very important!
I am grateful for no traffic on a long late night ride.
I am grateful for time chatting with my mom on Saturday morning with the sun shining through her window in her new home.
I am grateful for my family’s laughter, silliness and love of toilet humor!
I am grateful for the quiet walk with the kids in a familiar hood.
