Thankful Thursday

As a special series in November, I am going to do Thankful Thursday, to let you all know what I am thankful for.

Each week I will reflect on 3 things I am thankful for.

1. I am thankful for all those things we take for granted, that many in the world don’t have. I was reminded of this last weekend when my husband ran a race for AYA, a charity that helps build schools and other opportunities in Africa. I’ve got a modest roof over my heat with heat, a/c, hot and cold water whenever I want them. We eat what we like when we want. And drive anywhere we want to go. I am thankful for what we consider basics, but others consider luxuries.

2. I am thankful Adelaide sleeps through the night and is also a pretty good napper. She has sleep through the night since almost 4 months (with a hiccup at 6 months, but right back to it at 7). She is now almost 16 months and sleeps about 12 hours at night and naps about 2 hours during the day. I’m not bragging, I am grateful and thankful everyday for this everyday, because mommy needs and loves her sleep.

3. I am thankful that I am able to be a stay at home mom, partly because my husband is awesome and provides for us all, but I will do my thankful for him post next week. I am thankful I get to spend all these moments with her. Watching her grow everyday is amazing, I cherish every look, discovery and kiss I get.

What are you thankful for?

Mail Call: Oh! The Post!

I recently won the Adventures of Mommyhood “Fall in love with Handmade” giveaway, hosted by wonderful blogger, Amanda.

One of the prizes was my pick from Laura’s store, Oh! The Post!. Her “love for all things postage has morphed into a unique jewelry line featuring one-of-a-kind pieces using vintage, used & recycled postage stamps”.

~

I really had a hard time deciding, I loved so many of the designs. In the end, I decided not to pick for myself because I saw something that made me think of my mom.
I chose the “yellow rose necklace”, yellow is my mom’s favorite color and yellow roses are her favorite rose, so it was an easy choice.

~

The necklace arrived quickly and packaged in a lovely little bag, with a personal note and a little about the piece.
