Monthly Reflections | October

What I'm currently up to in life and on the blog. #currently #takingstock #monthlyreflections

It's the end of yet another month and it seems that no matter how hard I try to dig my heels in, the days just keep flying by.  I'm doing a few things differently these days, including getting outside to enjoy some fresh air and the beauty that surrounds me.  Tomorrow isn't guaranteed, so I'm living each day like it's my last.

Simple Gratitude | 05

Happy Monday!  It's such a lovely thing to count my blessings of the week past when everyone else is dreading the day and the week ahead.  Gratitude is such an uplifting thing, isn't it?

S'more Pops

Last weekend, I was hanging out with my niece while my sister was at work.  It was a super rainy and dreary day.  The kid and I were watching some tv and talking about making some s'mores, but we couldn't go outside in the pouring rain, so we came up with a solution.

Simple Gratitude | 04

It has been such a very long time since I've written a Simple Gratitude post.  I do keep a gratitude journal for daily tracking, but I have slipped on using it for a while.  In all honesty, some events of the past few months have made me bitter and focus on the negative things, but today, I'm turning over a new leaf and getting back into the swing of keeping my eyes on the blessings in my life.
