Gratitude Lately

Lately I've been grateful for
quiet Saturday mornings spent with 
husband, dog, coffee and books. 

For G-chatting with dear friends
and the seeds of a possible future venture together.

For relaxing days spent in forts. 

For surprise visits from lifelong friends. 

There's not much better than 
the laughter that comes from stories of days past. 
Also, this picture is from 2007. 

And Jax feels gratitude 
because I'm working on my sewing skills.

New toys! 

Cheers to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough. 

Dear Anthony,

After celebrating your birthday for 10 years,
I still can't believe the jackpot I hit when I married you. 

I love how kind & thoughtful you are to others.

I love what a great team we make. 

I love traveling with you and experiences new places. 

I love hanging with you and our nieces and nephews. 
You're going to make such a great dad some day.

I love that I can get history lessons at anytime of day.  
(yes, I did ask for a Hesbola explanation at 7am not too long ago). 

I love that we have a similar silly sense humor. 

I love your gusto. 
Being a working artist is no easy feat
and you're killing it. 

Marriage isn't easy and I'm thankful you're quick to forgive
and willing to work hard for this marriage.  

I feel so proud to call you my partner in crime, 
fellow fort-dweller, wife, and best friend. 
Cheers to the next 10 years!
