This Thanksgiving I am making an extra special effort to practice gratitude. I have been so fortunate over the past few years to finally be able to pursue something I love doing.
My new life (without the day job) almost seems too good to be true and I don't take it for granted for one minute. This year I especially have much to be thankful for, including but not limited to:
my supportive parents, sister and bro-in-law, and their adorable baby Tilly;
good friends who have either gotten me started on the creative path or pushed me further along by mentoring and providing me with invaluable opportunities;
my cozy apartment and a kind landlord;
good health and the presence of mind to follow my heart;
Pinterest and all the inspirational blogs out there that provide free eye candy, 24 / 7;
and last but not least, all my lovely customers without whom none of this would be possible! You know who you are and I appreciate each and every one of you for allowing me to do what I love. I hope I have brought a few smiles to your lives as well.
What are you grateful for?
Now for a bit of a tease... coming next time... my special Christmas collection!
