Thankful Thursday: Octoberful {2012}

Oh my Thankful Friends...

My blogs have taken a back seat to a busy summer & fall. 
But Thankfulness has not been pushed aside
no matter how much I procrastinate posting!

In this month full of pumpkin spice, crunching leaves, and foggy mornings--my heart has felt full 
and my spirits lifted 
by the many large & little things for which I am trying to be

Shall we?
I'm Thankful For:

October 11th
-new painted desks on which my boys' to can color to their giggling hearts content
-a weekend full of inspiration & reminders 
-an awesome husband who honors his priesthood duties
-phone calls with family that remind me of my blessings
-recliner naps in the sun
-frustrating projects being OVER & DONE
-treating myself to something sweet
-how I'm feeling about myself--wearing a size smaller
-new friends to distract me from the Mr.'s absence
-slobbery snuggles w/the two littlest
-book reading with the oldest
