365 grateful {week 1}

This year I decided I am going to really focus on a more thankful heart (i need it) and to document one thing a day that I am grateful for. I already take one photo a day and document a lot of our lives, but this time I wanted more of a focus of things I am thankful for.

I thought this was an original idea to do 365 Grateful. I was wrong ;) I used the hashtag #365Grateful and quickly realized it wasn’t the only one who thought of this. Which is kind of wonderful, if ya think about it!

It has already proven to be a really good challenge for me!


Day 1: For the little reminders that even on the roughest, most terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad-day (parenting) days…They are here: blessings and breathing. For that I am beyond thankful, even on the bad days. 399982_10151222827171989_1787098207_n

Day 2: For time to play pirates with them. 249860_10151219810606989_1399339288_n

Day 3: For priceless moments like this one with Grandma Anisa.74366_10151224650856989_2043778841_nDay 4: For this little loud one.


Day 5: For a spontaneous homemade lunch with a dear friend.64903_10151226767956989_1899895055_n

Day 6: For insurance for an idiotic mistake I made yesterday :)

30 Day Photo Fun {Week 1}

I’m doing a photo challenge with a few friends and decided to post one blog at the end of each week, with that weeks photos. Enjoy :)

June 01:: Self Portrait 

Me; frizzy hair, makeup less, freckles and all.

(I was a little discouraged to find self-portrait as the first day, however, not only did it challenge me in photography as I rarely do self-portraits, it also challenged me on a personal level which is good I guess ;)

June 02:: Your Favourite Shoes

Roxy sandals/flipflops have been a summer favourite since I was 16. Every spring I get a new pair because I usually wear them out each year. So, favourite shoes currently, these.

June 03:: Hands

Chase’s hand inside an imprint my brother did a few years back.

June 04:: Clouds

June 4th there was not a cloud in the sky until the sun was beginning to set. I texted my friend (who lives in OK) earlier in the day and she too had a cloudless day! Not that we were complaining! How funny :)

June 05:: Breakfast

Mmm. Leftover chicken with hash browns, green chili and eggs.

This week was fun! Excited for the next week. It’s not too late to join in if you want! You can play catch up or just start tomorrow. Here is the list if you’re interested; {30 Day} Photo Fun.
