Happy Thanksgiving!

a1Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you are all finding yourselves surrounded by good food and loved ones. On this day of reflection and thanks, I would like to share with you 25 things I am thankful for this year (some more serious than others):

  1. Celebrating five years of marriage with a husband who I can’t imagine my life without.
  2. The continued health and well being of my family.
  3. My fluffy children and their cheeky little faces.
  4. New experiences shared with old friends.
  5. New experiences leading to new friends.
  6. Photo editing apps for my iPhone.
  7. The discovery of new skills.
  8. RememberingĀ that no matter how much you know there will always be something new to learn.
  9. The day brightening power of flower crowns.
  10. The worst dining experience ever that ended with Andy & I laughing helpless as thing continued to go comedically wrong.
  11. Being the healthiest I’ve been in probably five years.
  12. The toe warming power of fluffy socks.
  13. Sparkle nail polish.
  14. The healing power of baking.
  15. Mistakes that lead to exponentially better outcomes.
  16. The joy of stomping in autumn leaf piles.
  17. Time spent with my favorite people.
  18. Being able to share my crazy journey, in this space, with you guys.
  19. My acupuncturist and all of the crazy woo woo stuff she has shown me that actually works. Even if she’s probably a wizard and scares me a little.
  20. My friends letting me be an honorary “Aunt” and spoil their children.
  21. Face time with friends who live far far away.
  22. This mystique of being in my 30’s and having people believe that I actually have shit together.
  23. The calming power of a good mug of tea.
  24. The sweetness of a quiet evening in, lounging on the couch with all my boys.
  25. Finding the adventure in the day to day.

What are you most thankful for this year?

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
