30 days of thanks.

give thanks.
{and lots of it}

this month i did the 30 days of thanksgiving challenge. 
{remember this? did you join in on it?}
taking a picture {or two} of something each day that i was thankful for, 
made me feel so very blessed. 
it was a fun 'challenge', that turned out to be anything but a challenge,
because i realized i am surrounded by things i am thankful for.
the challenging part, was picking just one thing for that day. 
{that explains why i have more than 30 pictures above, ops!}
i'm thankful for:
movement, our humble abode, my missionary/brother, marriage
learning, being able to vote, a handsome husband
rainstorms, friendship, earth's colors, mowgli,
fresh flowers, all things fall, my primary kiddos
surprise mail {a box of chocolate}, puppy play time, school's campus,
homemade dinners, date nights, being a girl, little william,
being in love, us, holiday packages from midge,
decorating, family outings, our thanksgiving feast,
the season of fall, polka dots + stars and top knots + red lipstick.

i'm afraid to say, i think i could add a dozen more things to the list.
so happy i did this challenge; can't wait to do it again next november. 
cheers to a month of giving thanks!
