a menagerie of love, thanks & happiness

Happy Monday dears & welcome to today's big love fest.  It's Thanksgiving week...just the thought puts a smile on my face.   Today, I'm taking the chance to share all the things I'm thankful for, most important of which is my family.  I hope you get to spend this weekend surrounded by your loved ones and lots of laughter.  

It's nice to stop and appreciate all the blessings in my life, especially this week but always really.  Such a wonderful reminder that even though things are a bit stressful at the moment (preparing to move across the world!)  there's still so much fun and happiness to be had all around me.  Sometimes, it's just the little things...

And finally, a quick update:  As I mentioned, I'm returning to America!  There are no words to describe how excited I am, but that also means a lot of work ahead.  Luckily, I have an amazing group of guest bloggers who will be popping in over the next month or so.  I'm so grateful to these lovely ladies for sharing their creativity here.   I know you'll love them as much as I do.  So, be on the look-out for a few guest posts here & there.  They start this week!

What's making you happy lately?
What are you grateful for this year?
