Lovin' it...

Winter Days I'm thankful for cold, cozy days with pretty fall leaves that are...falling, and falling fast! I'm pretty sure this tree in my front yard doesn't have any leaves on it anymore.
Over the past few weeks I've really enjoyed the walks I've taken Roxy on. It's been pretty cold, but there are those days (especially after it's snowed) where the weather seems insulating, almost warm and inviting in it's own way. I've tried to not have the mentality of 'Damn, it's going to be cold outside, I don't want to do it!' and instead I just bundle up, making sure I'll stay warm.
My Body I'm also thankful for hands that are creative and am so thankful for a healthy body that allows me to do SO many incredible things. I take it for granted a lot of times, but like my 'Aha!' moment with nursing, I frequently get 'Aha!' moments with my body. I know some day I will grow old and my body won't be as well, so I hope I can continue to focus on all the good it does me right now, such as making scarves for Christmas!
Roxanne I can honestly say I never thought I would be able to love an animal this much. I always thought it was silly when people said they loved their dogs or had bumper stickers that said 'My heart belongs to {insert dog breed here}' but honestly? I've considered getting one myself! I love this little lady so much and, barring any health issues, I'm glad I'll be able to have her around for another 16 or so years!!

Are you thankful for anything? 
If so, leave a comment or link up with some other bloggers!


  1. love this, I have a back problem (Spondylolisthesis) and I often try to remind people how thankful I am FOR my body.  Yes, it may have issues but it gets me up and going and for that I am blessed.

    And your puppy is absolutely adorable. What breed? It's on the tip of my tongue but I can't place it.... I just love their markings. Aussie? Healer? Ugh! Driving me nuts I can't remember!

    Anyways, thanks for linking up this week! XO

  2. Aw Steffani I just love this one! Now I want to go back and revamp mine. =P

    And she's a blue heeler, you were right!

  4. I love yours how it is! I did mine after I saw yours and was inspired!

  5. I am thankful for my family!  There's so much going on right now with my family and Dave's family, and I am glad to be a part of their lives.
