thankful (fifteen)

"we are all cups, constantly and quietly being filled.
the trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful out"
(ray bradbury)

on this fifteenth day of the month, i am thankful for:
+++ awesome fun mail from the pattersons in wisconsin, you rock! xo
+++ my assistant being kind of enough to do me a favor and pick something up for me so that i could actually eat some lunch today
+++ a staff person that has been a tremendous asset to my team, and knowing that he will do great in his new position with a different part of our agency (boo hoo)
+++ being able to be there when a friend got the call that she needed to leave immediately in order to be able to go to the hospital to say her goodbye to her dad
+++ catching up over a late dinner and drinks with a good friend
+++ laughter
+++ my sister coming tomorrow to stay with me for two days. awesome.
+++ not going in to the office tomorrow, i didn't say not working tomorrow, just not going into the office. small victories.
+++ knowing that i get to hang out with malena in the morning, especially since i didn't get to see her at all today
+++ chocolate chex mix
+++ getting our next kiwi crate project in the mail which equals a fun new project to work on
+++ genuine kindness

for the "grateful" giveaway, marcie-roo is the winner;) i will send out the cards to you in the mail tomorrow so that you have them in plenty of time for thanksgiving. enjoy!

happy friday everyone, the weekend is here. ours will be full of lots of celebrations and fun. i hope that yours is equally as good. xo.


  1. Your sister is also happy she is visiting for a couple days :)

  2. Yay!! Excited to get them and send them out!! So glad you worked from home today. I hope you got to relax a little bit while at home. :)

  3. I am curious to find out what blog platform you're utilizing? I'm experiencing some small security
    problems with my latest blog and I'd like to find something more secure. Do you have any recommendations?
