Thankful Challenge Day 9 | 2016

Today I’m thankful for the amusement of my Facebook feed from seeing both sides of the spectrum. I’m also thankful for the peace and happiness I choose to create for myself when everyone else isn’t so zen. It’s been one of the best life lessons I’ve ever learned.

Next to doing our usual cuddling in the bed watching Gilmore Girls with David, my thankful came in the middle of a humdrum day listening to a podcast that Natalie Hanson was part of. Natalie is the wife of Taylor Hanson, who makes up a third of my favorite band – you guessed it – […]

Halloween has now officially come and gone.
