I wanted to start a new column on my blog that focused on the positive things in life. Because all to often, we fixate on the negative and forget to simply enjoy what’s in front of us. As I was mulling over this last week, Michael suggested that I start journaling more – which I decided to take a step further as well. Every once in awhile, I’m going to share a few thoughts about what I’m currently grateful for. The advantages of this are two fold : I will be able to practice my photography, while taking time out of my day to think about what’s important! A simple exercise.
01. Last Sunday, I had one of those evenings where my mind was racing and furiously thinking about what’s next and how I can continue to improve my passion for creativity. I was anxious and the whole thought process was exhausting, but whenever I wander down that path – Michael is the one who can consistently bring me back to reality. So the following day, he came home from work with a bouquet of flowers ( pictured above ) that he picked out himself at a local flower shop. Moments like that are what it’s all about.
02. Michael ( look who scores twice!! ) has also been super helpful around the house lately. In an effort to save a little money as we decorate our house, he has been gracious enough to build a few key furniture pieces. First up was the fauxdenza, which gave our living and dining rooms the connecting space we needed. He is very meticulous at what he does, which I’m ALWAYS appreciative of.
So there you have it, a few things that I am thankful for this week. PLUS, this post serves as a tiny sneak peak of our upstairs living space, although I know this isn’t much insight at all. More soon! We’re still pulling together a lot of knick knacks to finish off the space.
