thankful by megan

thanksgiving is approaching…and i am so very excited. i can’t believe the holiday season is upon us. it’s my favorite time of the year. everything just seems…right. people are kinder. love just seems to radiate. atleast, that’s how i find the holidays to be!

with thanksgiving so near, i’ve been thinking of what i am thankful for. but there is so much i don’t even know where to begin. so, here’s a brief list

  • God and my faith…where would I be without God?
  • family & friends & my church
  • finally enjoying life: friends, food, family, school, happy times, sad times, laughter, learning, making mistakes…hitting bumps in the road and relying on God’s strength to get me through!
  • new orleans
  • being me…and just me. simple as that.

of course, there are many more things i am thankful for…but those few stand out right now!

look at this thankful turkey craft i found…

how much fun would it be to make him? i would love to have a thanksgiving craft party with each and every one of you! because, i am so thankful for you! my readers…the very small amount of you πŸ™‚ y’all have been with me since the blogging days of health, fashion, happiness! and i am so thankful to have y’all as friends!

enjoy your monday!


early excitement by megan

so, it is finally cold down here. don’t laugh, but it is in the 60’s…and that is cold weather for us southerners! we have been waiting patiently for a cold day for a while now…

anyway, i’m sitting here working on my student teaching portfolio all bundled up in black leggings, one of my favorite patagonia fleeces, and ugg boots ..and listening to christmas music. i am so ready for christmas. and all of the things that come along with it in my wonderful city…

ah, i know its a little early to get excited for christmas…especially since my favorite holiday, thanksgiving, is next week! i need to focus on that…and all the goodness that comes with it πŸ™‚ and, i am thinking of making these martha stewart place cards…

{here’s the how to}

but i may need to go with an easier one…like this other martha craft

{how to}

maybe i will make both?

happy tuesday, friends!
