Whenever I'm having a bit of a hard time I like to make gratitude lists. So, here goes:

-So thankful for a God who is loving and gracious.
-For a husband who runs out to get me mango sorbet when I've had a long day.
-A daughter that makes me feel like a queen (and not just because she calls me "Your Majesty" with no sarcasm), but because she is so loving and sweet and I get so excited every time I get to see her. I am in love with this girl. Three has been such a fun year. It is a joy to be her mother. Truly.
-For time with family. I've had the best moments with my family over the last couple of weeks and I'm so thankful for that. Yesterday I went to Piedmont Park with Matilda to meet up with Jake and Rachel and Willis and I just felt so blessed to have siblings that are my friends. People I want to hang out with. I love them so much.
-For parents that offer love, support, and advice. That take time out of their busy lives to be there for us at the drop of a hat. So thankful.
-For the best friends in the world.
-For popsicle weather, al fresco weather, park weather. Every day.
-For your comments that truly inspire and encourage me. Love hearing from you.
