This week I don't feel like I have a lot of words, or maybe I just don't feel like using them so in few words and pictures...

This week I am grateful for:

A hero.


Sweetness.


Rainy days and little helpers.


My husband and our little family.


Relaxing at the end of the day with Dag.


Sweet girls and their imaginary worlds.


Family, a phone call with my sister, and birthday gatherings.


Family, and my mom, and my girls, their love for their Gaga (and Baba not pictured.) And a date with my man.


So thankful for so much, but this week mostly family, and safety, and our town.

{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}

This week I am grateful for:

A lovely week with my friends and family.  I am feeling so grateful for the friends in my life this week.  I have found as an adult with a business and a family sometimes maintaining friendships can be hard for me; and I am happy to be reminded of how important friendship is.

Feeling loved and appreciated.  It was my birthday this week, I don't usually do much for myself or draw to much attention to my day, but my family and dear friends were very thoughtful and sweet, and with Facebook so many people reached out and sent me well wishes, it was quiet wonderful. 

For these two loves doing so many heartfelt things for me.

These two are the sweetest!

For my mom helping the girls with their big secret surprise, a beautiful cake.

For my dad coming over on my birthday, and making me feel so special.

Love my Dad <3
For beautiful days spent with my girls.

For time in the garden.

For thoughtful friends. 

For people accepting each other for who they are and where they are at.

For little things, like finding special stones in the garden.  And watching bees and butterflies with the girls.

For slowing down, and being later to work than I wanted, so I could read the girls a book they wanted to hear.

For music. And for my new happy song.  We have been dancing and clapping to it all week.

For art and creativity running free at home, it feels so good.

For all the local customers who keep us going during these less touristy months.

Painting a rainbow on Pippi's window.  Not only do I enjoy painting our shop windows, but I feel so happy when I look at it.

Another day of rain and enjoying my time in it with the girls.

Mud pies.

Sunshiny bike ride days.


Swimming with the girls.

Communicating.

Intense hugs.


New spring leggings.

Make believe.

A new washing mashing (ours was nothing but trouble, after only 18 months, trying to have it fixed and then it shredding my clothes...I was done.)   Canclini Appliance locally was wonderful, I highly recommend them.

A day of work in the yard with my husband.

Getting ready for spring.

Morning cuddles.

Play, play, play.


For things feeling right.

For turning 34 this week and loving and appreciating my life more as I age.

For being blessed with wonderful parents, siblings, and my lovely little family too.

{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}

This week I am grateful for:

A long lovely week off with my family.

My beautiful little girl's fifth birthday.   I can not believe she is 5!


Rain!

Garden daydreams and planning.

Spring cleaning and getting organized at home, (I was feeling overwhelmed with all the stuff.)

The girls feeling better after both getting ear infections.

A wonderful Disneyland trip, it is so fun to go with my girls and enjoy the magic with them, but I also LOVE to see my husband as carefree as a kid. (His family went every year when he was growing up and he still looks forward to it just as much as when he was little.)



For both of my girls and their desire to be spend time with me.  (I admit I do feel overwhelmed by feeling so needed at times, but I also love it, and want to soak it all in while they are still small).



For soul soothing music.

For reminders to just be.

For connections with new friends and old.

For this little town (I think I might say this one a lot, but it is so good to have a tight knit community that shares with each other in joy and heartache.) 

And again for the rain, our grass has turned green and I am less scared to plant my garden now that we have had a few more inches.  (Keep it coming!)

For new socks at the shop.  I will be doing a "New at Pippi's" post this week so check back!
