Thankful Thursday #9

It's been a couple months since I shared a Thankful Thursday post and so, I figured today would be a good time to bring it back. I have so much to be thankful for on a daily basis and below is a short list of a few extra fun things I've been thankful for lately.

Emily Ley's new book: "A Simplified Life"

I have a feeling that you're going to be hearing a lot about this book, the more that I read it. I shed a tear during the first paragraph of the introduction just because it is so relatable to where I'm at right now. 

Emily Ley's first book, "Grace Not Perfection" was a game changer for me and I think this second book of hers is going to be no different!

All The Peppermint Scents & My New Oil Burner

With Christmas coming up, I've been burning peppermint scented oils and wax in my house day and night. I don't know about you but, peppermint is a scent that makes me think "it's Christmas time!"

Essential Oil Infused Winterberry Spice Candle

Okay, the only exception to peppermint in my house this time of year is this new Winterberry Spice candle I found this week. 

I also like the scent of pine this time of year too but, I haven't found a good scent of pine. I have one scent in mind when I think of pine and everywhere I've checked hasn't matched it. Peppermint and Winterberry will have to be it this year!

My Time with my Sister's Family

My sister, her husband and my baby nephew were in town for two weeks! They are down in Texas this week visiting Jarrod's side of the family but, they will be back for one day next week for us to say goodbye before they travel back to Guam for another year. 

It's been so hard to live without my sister in the same time zone but, I have been so thankful for all of the time I had to spend with her family while they were in town.

My Ever-Growing Toddler

Being thankful for Piper kind of goes without saying every single day of my life but, I have to share a picture of her from this week. She is starting to look more and more like a little girl and less like a my baby every day. 

I came downstairs the other day and she was standing on the couch {hah} and said, "Mama, I turning 3 soon". I pretty much cried and laughed at the same time. It was one of those moments that make you think "where does the time go?"

  1. Damn! Yet another blog with a cute looking baby. I am guessing that is your nephew if I am not wrong. His eyes are so cute.
