{Gratitude}

Feeling extra grateful for all of the blessings in my life. 

It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind and not stop to appreciate the little things, by I am trying my best to do so.

From the kindness of a stranger to the little things my husband does around the house, these moments are appreciated and I hope I express that enough. 

We need to be grateful for what we have instead of envying what others may have.

I’m practicing daily gratitude. Stopping to really see all that I am surrounded by and appreciate my life for what it is right now.

Take time to notice the little things. They add up and can change your perspective in knowing that what you have is enough♡

{Flower Stand}

We did it. After talking about wanting my own flower stand ever since I drooled over the pages of the Cut Flower Garden, it was so nice to finally accomplish that dream.

I planted a few different cut flowers to see how they would grow, along with our usual sunflowers, but we couldnt cut as many as were growing. It seemed like the perfect time to get a stand out and let everyone else enjoy them as we have.

So thankful for a handy husband who takes my dreams and runs with them. He made me the perfect flower stand to showcase these beauties. 

 

Forever grateful♡

{Vacation}

I’ve been MIA the past few weeks getting everything together for our annual U.P. Vacation.

We had a week long trip in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula surrounded by family and friends.

《It was absolutely wonderful》

.
We had fun sightseeing in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, checked out the freighters at the Soo Locks and dipped our toes into Lake Superior in the quaint village of Grand Marais.

I am already looking forward to next year’s trip. To spend time in nature and be surrounded by natural beauty makes my heart happy.

Do you have an annual vacation that you look forward to every year?
