This Week I am...

~Giving Thanks~
To my family, my friends, my sweet pets and my very special blogging friends.
Not quite a year ago I started this little blog and had no idea what it would bring to my life.
The friendships, the support, the encouragement and the inspiration.
So, when I sit with my family and friends at our Thanksgiving table on Thursday I will raise my glass and silently toast each of you that have become a very important part of my day.
I was thinking about the holidays today {when I made two separate trips to the grocery store}.
I do love this time of year- I love the sounds, the scents, the planning, the music, the shopping-really just about every part of the season is so special.
I hopped over to one of my favorite blogs- Heart of Light. Rachel put the holidays into perspective for me. I feel as though her words could have spilled right out of my mouth {only she expressed her thoughts so much more eloquently than I would have}.
If you haven't visited Rachel's blog- go now! Really! It will surely become a regular for you-I just adore this girl.
