There is so much to be thankful for this week. Family, friends, love, shelter, warm blankets, laughter, art, beautiful mornings, smiles, healthy children, freedoms...I could go on for days. After the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and the pain around the globe, I don't want to take anything for granted. 

I am so thankful that I have been able to grab little snippets of life throughout this last year on my iPhone with Instagram. Once the year is over, I hope to make some digital photo books. That way my family can easily look back over all the sweet moments and blessings we have had this year. Can't wait to put them all together. I may need a few volumes though. :) 
Here are some favorites lately...

 Getting ready to use some new watercolor pencils that I found on clearance. Sweet!

Yes! The boots have come out. Fall, I love you!

 Strolling along the aisles of Michaels with my FREE Starbucks coffee. They gave it to me for free because I had a long wait. Noooo problem!

 Our adorable entourage after feeding them some good bread.

 Election Night 2012 - My little man doing his part. :)

  I never want the "hand-in hand" to end! Ever!

 Master carving by the Hubs!

My little Christmas painting on the shelves at Urban Barn. :)

 Let the Christmas movies begin...snuggling with my daughter 
watching the Grinch.

I hope your week has had a beautiful beginning!
