mush for the weekend.

Just some things I'm thankful for this week (and pretty much all the time)...

holding my baby :: while he sleeps. Even if it means being stuck and unable to turn down the music or eat breakfast. 

your comments :: seriously, i love learning more about you through tidbit stories and your sense of humor. You make me laugh; everyone needs to do that. And then to open the computer and find such compliments: "it's really nice to come back to blog world finding something like this." I know the feeling, and it's an honor to contribute to it. (Thanks, LatteLisa!) Not that I'm incomplete without compliments, but it was a happy welcome to internet land, as I sat under a snoozing R.

to be able to write a letter like this :: rereading that letter after several months reminded me that S + I really have been on a lot of adventures, not even counting the fact we met in Patagonia. The summits. The glaciers. The blizzard  beneath the ice field--our four arms and legs pegged to the tent walls bracing against the gales and wishing the tent against breaking. I'm tempted to take this around the world, to Mediterranean backstrokes and cliff diving marriage proposals, driving in the back of that car from Bovec to Vienna with Ali and Ismet--a subwoofer lodged between us--and stopping every half hour to fill the radiator with water while losing our way and our back fender. I don't need to go everywhere we've been with this list. But sometimes it's good to remember. And that this is only the beginning.

mushiness :: thanks y'all, for bearing with it. 

What are you thankful for right now?

Thankful to have an internship/job type of thing even though it's as stressful as heck! And also for ipod games.

Aww, you are a total sweetheart with a heart of gold, your letter totally made me turn to mush :)

I am thankful that right now my health is "up", I am thankful that I had a few wonderful days with my family, and I am thankful to be spending my nieces 9th birthday roller blading and playing laser tag today.

Have a beautiful weekend.

I haven't had a baby, yet - But I can imagine holding your baby would be one of the most amazing feelings...

Jen said...

Oh man - sleeping babies? Pretty sure there's nothing better, especially if they're in your arms. Can't wait to (hopefully) hold one of my own someday!

Am thankful for my brand new niece born this week, little Piper Grace. New life, yay!

Amazing! Those are all great things to be thankful for – so important to take the time to recognize too.

I am most definitely thankful to my family first and foremost and then comes all the people in my life now and for all the ones who will inevitably be in my life in the future. Everyone leaves an imprint and I'm most thankful for being able to experience that. It's a beautiful thing.

Keep inspiring us!!
