Giving Thanks

After a weekend of sporadic internet connection, it feels wonderful being able to finally post again. Being a few days without good internet definitely made me grateful for the many blessings that I have, one being this blog. I am so grateful that I have a space that is my own where I can share my love for the good things in this life, like lipstick and books, and everything in between.

I try to think about the smaller things that I forget about, like being able to watch Netflix when I want to, or being able to put my thoughts down on paper so that I can remember how I felt years from now, or the times that I am forced to take a break. Of course there are the big things, like our family, our home, Christopher’s job, and my schooling. I am always grateful for the big things (though I’m not always good at showing it), but I have found that remembering the small things will always make me a more grateful person. Like I said in my Instagram post yesterday, having “an attitude of gratitude” makes all the difference!

I hope that you have had a lovely Thanksgiving! We are back to regular posting this week, and I have a lot of things to talk about!
