My favorite things

This week I was reminded of something that fills me with joy, air. That special first day of the season where the weather is warm and the breeze is fresh. On Thursday I opened every window in the house. The sun filling my living room, I lounged on my couch in silence closed my eyes and allowed the soft breeze to caress me. The birds were each singing their unique songs, I think as grateful as I was for the warmth. I felt such calm simply allowing myself to be in the moment and find joy in what is a gift to us all.


A week in Gratitude
I am so grateful and excited for the art  class I am taking.
I am grateful for a quick set of laughs with my boys and still making my train!
I am grateful for a lovely night getting to know new people.
I am grateful for some quality time with a good friend, chatting until our eyes were closing.
I am grateful for my friend Bill’s successful night featuring 2 of his wonderful plays, one of which has always been one of my faves!
I am grateful to have gotten our taxes in and still having time to have a relaxing evening home with my husband.
I am grateful for a wonderful day out with one of my best friends enjoying art and making an awesome “out of the box” dinner! It doesn’t mean what it used to, so healthy and soo good 🙂
