Yesterday, in America, was Thanksgiving. As always my daughter's home was filled with family and laughter and love.  4 year old Austin said a wonderful grace before our feast and both he and little sister Ansley fought naptime vigilantly... and won.  I'm so grateful for my family and times like these... for the love I have surrounding me.

I'm also grateful for you, my lovely blog friends... and for your lovely words and inspiration...
and for beautiful works of art like these...

I won these in Marie's giveaway at Lost Bird Studio.  Aren't they exquisite? I absolutely love them! Thank you so much!


  1. I'm so glad for your happy thanksgiving! It is my favorite holiday ... Austin and Ansley sound just adorable!
