Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for:

1.  Thoughtful friends.  Not only did I get this great book bag, there were books inside.  Happy early birthday to me!

2. 100 weddings.  Gary and I have met so many great people and have learned so much!  GC Photography will be coming to end (likely) July 2016.  We're looking forward to what adventures may come our way :)

3.  The love between these three.  Look at their morning cuddles on the couch...they just love being together (most of the time!)

4.  Nya doing so well at the dentist.  She had to get a filling and it's not a pediatric dentist so I wondered how she would do. She was fantastic.  She actually laid on top of me while having it done, just in case, but next time she'll be just fine doing it on her own.  She's showing you the red bracelet she got as a prize.

5. Swimming lessons.  All three kids are in it this week.  How did Nya get so old?! She loves feeling like such a big girl.  Gary also takes them to the outdoor pool every single day because he's awesome.

6.  American Ninja Warrior.  Such a fun show and keeps these kids active with their aspirations of being on the show one day ;) 

7.  Resourceful friends.  I love the variety of friends that I have.  I can approach them with questions on anything from parenting to fashion to recommended resources.   Thank you, friends.  You know who you are!!

8. You.  Seriously. Thank you for reading.

9. Prayer. Sometimes, that's all there's left to do.

10. Gary being home for the summer.  I am so incredibly thankful to have a parenting partner (and best friend) at home with me.  Our summer may not be that exciting but it's been good for our hearts and minds.

Apparently I need to take a few more photos of my kiddos this week.  Taking 3,000 pictures this weekend burned me out a bit ;)

What are YOU thankful for today?



  1. We have been loving swimming lessons too! LOVE your book bag! That is way too cool.

    1. Thanks, I love it too! It's from Chapters :)

  2. A glass of wine with friends :)

    1. 1. Yahoo--a comment form Leah!
      2. How did that not make MY list? It will have to next week which means....let's do it!

  3. Great book bag gift! I will miss your wedding photography, but at least you have weaned us off of your photography gradually! Great that Nya did so well at the dentist. I am thankful for children who are arriving home (starting this evening) for the wedding in our family this weekend.

    1. I LOVE family weddings and just really any happy occasion where family can be together!! Have so much fun!

  4. Good job Nya! I had to get a filling last night. I hate having that drill in my mouth!
