Happy Friday!!

Giving Thanks...

It is not Thanksgiving yet,
but I'm going to rattle off a few things
 I'm thankful for a little early...

-my conversation with my grandmother this week-

-the realization i have it pretty well made at my job with a surrogate family-

-realizing i can't bear the weight of the world on my shoulders,
and knowing it's ok to accept the help of others-

-selling my first photo on etsy, and it not being a family member,
i swear i thought it was spam mail at first telling me i had inherited $ in Nigeria-

-the first cold front in Florida,
sorry everyone else in Winterland, that means 50 degrees F here-

-my hair is getting really long... yes!!-

-watching Teri @ Girl Meets Paris and Kori @ Blonde Episodes
do so well at the writing challenge, you continue to inspire me
thank you Teri for the Blog Award too!-

-a new pretty Emerald dress...
my boyfriend said i looked like a creature of the sea...
i think it was a good thing-

-pulling out the holiday decorations,
i don't care if it's not even thanksgiving yet,
i'm too excited to wait-

-wonderful blog friends new and loyal (not old),
who's comments brought me much needed cheer this week-

Have a great weekend my friends!

    What a lovely list of things to be grateful for!

    I have "Can't Say No Syndrome" I’m finally realizing myself that I can't bear the weight of the world and like you, being okay with accepting help. I have a few years on you and I'm glad you're learning this valuable lesson at a young age!
