Another Trip Around the Sun

Posted on Friday, July 1st, 2011

{The Birthday Card from my Parents on my birthday gift from the hubs….WOOD FLOORS!!! SQUEAL!}

Somehow, I blinked and made another trip around the sun.  I actually have debated what I wanted to post, as it’s been a pretty full year. One thought was to post “lessons learned” this year…of which I learned quite a few about people, friendship, hard work, and what (and who) is truly important in my life. Another thought was to look back at all of the things that have gone on this year (the move, baby’s first birthday, princess starting dance lessons)….and I finally settled on a much more simplistic post. A blogging friend recently had a birthday, and I loved that Anna from In Honor Of Design posted the things she was most grateful for….so I am following her trend. Thanks Anna for the inspiration! I am so grateful for this life and the millions of beautiful moments in it….so here are just a few I am grateful for today.

Today I am grateful :

…that my husband is such a thoughtful person and my best friend. He makes me laugh and always thinks of the kids and I first….

…for two beautiful children who fill my day with lots of laughs, hugs, a few wrinkles, and lots of noise….and I mean lots of noise!! (Because I know if I didn’t hear the noise…the silence would be deafening.)…

…for my amazing parents who have always encouraged me to think outside the box and to be myself, as offbeat as I may have been at times! {see the birthday card photo!}…

…for some ridiculously fantastic friends – who listen, love, understand, and help me to grow every day

…that I am able to live my dream. I love design, I love color, I love graphics, and I love working with people. To have the opportunity to do that on a daily basis is more than I could have ever asked for….

…for every moment and every breath….and although I don’t really enjoy the thought of getting another year older, I look forward to the amazing things this year has to hold.

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! xo
