November 2022 Highlights

November, a month to reflect on the things we are thankful for. I decided to try and do what I am thankful for each day, in the form of photos. I figured I could use the challenge of paying attention to the great things in life. Even when times are hard and my body feels to be working against me, there is always something not to be taken for granted. Life is too short to stay focused on the hard parts.

We have 5 pets in our home, 3 cats and 2 dogs. 2 of my pets tend to be protective of me and offer me comfort in times of need (they just seem to know). Pictured here is Synyster [we call him Syny] cuddling me when I was having a painful and emotional time. He tends to be the most in-tune with me. I am grateful for my pets.

Thankful for my village and helping me bring ideas to life 🙏 🙌 ❤️. Not pictured is my sister’s boyfriend who helped us transport all the wood, so grateful! Plus being able to borrow all the tools from people definitely saved on costs!

Organizing always makes me feel accomplished and a little less stressed.
This is after going from 6 toy bins to 3, a full trashbag of garbage/junk, and finding 5,894 dirty socks stuffed into random places. 😳 😵 ☆I am also reminded why I dislike paying full price for things, just for them to be colored on, cut, broken etc.
