still thankful for...

a very amazing and awesome career

all adjectives except for awesome and amazing (this is the last time I will use them. Ever!)

technology - it makes it easy to talk to josh while he's on the other side of the world (Ok, i looked it up, the opposite of the world if you stay in the northern hemisphere is a city in northern china called Sonid Youqi. The exact opposite of the world from where I live is the southern part of the Indian Ocean, midpoint between the very southern tip of australia and africa, so maybe he's only three quarters or so of half way around the world from me, but either way he is far.)

my talents - I'm diving into creative outlets to keep my mind off of things. It's worked fairly well so far

my big sparkly ring, that josh asked if I wanted to replace with a 2 carat diamond which i turned down (WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?!) my excuse was that it wouldn't have the sentimental value that my diamond does. bah. regret.

summer, because this morning I woke up to this:

disclaimer: sorry for being so whiny today

fluffy bathrobes,


time spent with my lover bear

In an effort to get back into blogging (since few to none read this, if only for myself, it makes a great journal, ya?) I'm going to post EVERY DAY this month telling you what I am grateful for. I take too much for granted as it is. So anywho....

Today I am grateful for my handsome husband and all the hard work he does to provide me with more than I need.

I call these stocks "marriage" haw haw. But seriously, he is the cutest.

love like lightning!

I took this picture during what seemed like hurricane Irene last night.

We had no power and lightning was striking all around us - less than 20 feet away from our house.

It was scary. But exciting. And fun to have a little campout with my love in our living room while we watched the lightning storm.

Also, as much as I wish we had a glasstop stove, our propane stove saved us from dying of hunger last night. The only time I have ever appreciated it - and not cursed it.
