Today is the day...
...and always, we count on (...Ann Voskamp style!)
#1585 - Fall is finally HERE! Officially and everything! Planning on slowly taking out Autumn Decor and decking the halls this week (and lighting my yummy fall candles too!)
#1591 - Knowing glances across a room (or just across a conversation) between my girlie and I... and between my Honey and I... usually followed by laughter!
#1592 - A walk and one on one time to talk with a new friend!
#1593 - A lunch date and photo session...
#1594 - Thankful for a friend who is a pro and was willing to take a few headshots for me!
#1595 - Getting Happy "We're Expecting" news from friends... so precious!
#1596 - Our girlie rec'v enough grants to cover the cost of her classes this year... so all we need to come up with is book money! (Relieved to finally confirm this!)
#1604 - A new recipe for homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer... buying the ingredients today (which are all 'real' btw!) and mixing it up!
#1606 - Praying for our city... my Honey and I volunteered to pray in a booth at the fair. We spent 6 hours on Saturday sharing hope and love and encouragement... praying for people for healings, for family issues, for direction... it was such a blessing! (And we get to go back in a couple of days and do it again!)
#1607 - Random wandering at the Fair... the smells and sights of a small town fair (minus a lot of photo's as my phone died - which was a gift as well - to stay completely present in it all!)
Which leads us into #1608 - Having one of my girlies' friends offer me her old iPhone... (I've been praying for one to have before Allume and while it's not a 5... or even a 4... it looks like I will have one and can sign up for one of the classes at the conference for iphone photography! So fun!)
#1609 - Watching my Honey at the Styx concert. He was SO loving it! I am just a bit younger - and was not so into that band but did recognize a good number of songs - but for my guitar player hubby - he was playing right along with them on every single riff!
#1610 - My girlie and her friend, planning out their first day! Excited and nervous and happy to have each other!
#1610 - While making all sorts of grown up plans, my girlie still asks my opinion and cares what I think... I have to be mindful to not use this to my own advantage... but I'm continuing to let go and encourage.
#1611 - First day of college = no front step photo. (Thankful I didn't think of it until she was gone!)
(NOT from this morning!)
#1613 - Parents who live right next door... and that we are able to help them out with the little things when they need it! (Moving things around... clearing things out... fixing things... etc!)
#1614 - Fun Pens and a Glittery Binder (getting ready for Allume!)
#1616 - A quiet Sunday morning with a lovely stack of books, and a warm cup of healing goodness from my Honey!
(Organic Honey, Cinnamon, and purified boiling water! So good!)
#1618 - Any minute... my girlie will be home from class and (hopefully) she will have all sorts of words to share. Counting the gift that she is still home... and still shares!
...and counting on!
What about you? What are you thankful for today? What sort of gifts are you counting?
