thankful (one) + a card giveaway

hello, november.

you will bring a lot of good things. birthdays. parties. thanksgiving. time with family and friends. i am ready for you.

this november i am going to really take the time to slow down and be thankful each day for all of the good things in my life. as i saw on a blog today, a quote by amy tangerine..."today i am very grateful for all that i have and for all that i don't."

today i am thankful for:
+++ baked potatoes with my favorite toppings
+++ mike n ikes
+++ funny text messages
+++ awesome date night with one of my most favorite girls
+++ great food, cold reisling
+++ malena asking me to lay down with her until she falls asleep
+++ my favorite fleece pants and sweatshirt

i think that it is time for another card giveaway. can you guess the theme? yep, being thankful. you know the deal. 5 handmade cards, 5 envelopes, 5 stamps.

leave a comment on this post (or click over to the blog and leave a comment) by 5pm on saturday. i will use the random number wizard to pull the lucky winner.

happy friday all, the weekend is almost here. finally. it has taken a really long time to get here.

enjoy it.
