November gratitude: week 3

Listening now….

I am grateful for songs like this that bring tears to my eyes and have so much meaning of gratitude in them.

“I don’t care if the house is packed
Or the strings of light are broken
I don’t care if the gifts are wrapped
Or there’s nothing here to open
Love is not a toy, and no paper will conceal it
Love is simply joy that I’m home
I don’t care if the carpet’s stained we’ve got food upon our table
I don’t care if it’s gonna rain, our little room is warm and stable
Love is who we are, and no season can contain it
Love would never fall for that”

 

We usually don’t listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, but this year I caved!

Monday has come again and I  enjoyed a Sunday night snuggled up with a glass of wine and my computer on my lap to blog our 3rd week of November gratitude!I sat in the cozy living room with mama watching the Christmas lights around me twinkle and smelling the pine scented candles mom had lit. Tidings of comfort and joy… Puppies snoring behind me, too. I enjoyed every bit our last moment of peace and serenity before another busy week…

 

Week 3 gratitude:

 

angel I am grateful for the change of the seasons and the opportunity to embrace all that they have to offer. This weekend, that meant a holiday farmer’s market (in 65 degrees and sunny) and decorating for the holiday.

Just kidding, it’s about being thankful…

And eating.Lots of eating!

angelI am grateful for the ability to express myself through my sense of style and through blogging.

And for a patient mama who can take pictures of me for my blog. Good thing she’s a blogger too so she gets it!

Here’s what I wore to the Holiday market! #OOTD

I am like a walking ad for H&M. The pants, shirt, and duster are all from there!

(Not planned)

I wanted these shoes all summer. I finally found them for $7 on sale at Target at the end of the season!

 

A not so typical 65 and sunny day in late November on the mountain top…

Someone else wanted to pose too….

 

angelI am grateful for our first big snowfall, my cozy home, and family traditions for Christmas. 

(By the way- this was Saturday night into Sunday- right after our 65 and sunny day!)

We decorated on Saturday with the warm weather and felt lucky to wake up to snow and be able to enjoy our Christmas decorations with the snow falling outside.
