I don’t know if it totally would be classified as “cheating” but yes, below equals three thankful posts in one post. Gasp right? Ok I don’t neccesarily know if anyone really has noticed or cares, but yes I feel a tad bit guility so hence the title of this post.  Here goes nothing, my first thankful pictures would be these  holey do-dads, self named by me because I am not sure what their name really is. These holey do-dads look almost coral-like, and I just loved their dimension and texture.

I found these yesterday when I grabbed my camera to soak in the last moments of sunlight and a 55 degree day. I can’t even describe how excited I was to arrive at the park I had planned to watch the sunset. Seriously, it was like a kid in a candy store, asking myself “gina..are we there yet?”  Ok, I know this sounds like some relationship drama but, I hadn’t had alone time with my camera since Seattle. We missed each other. 🙂  New rule for myself is at least one day a week just hang out with my camera and me for a couple of hours and see what catches my eye. It is so refreshing and I think super important for my work as well. This first picture just makes me feel happy. I love the way the sun is just glazing these plants/weeds whatever they are. In my eyes they are beautiful. sunnyday0064sunnyday00521Next, I am thankful for this little potted plant. To give you a little backround, this december will mark a year in our first home. Late in the summer we finally had a little time to work on the yard and add some plants and flower beds. I picked these up when we were at the gardening store, cause I just love them. I love these flowers in wedding bouquets and even though you are not supposed to pot them I did, I just wanted to see them at my front door everyday. Well I am definitely not a green thumb and kinda just let these guys go…..and I really like how they turned out. I think that this color set would be amazing for a vintage like bouquet but more importantly I still give a lil’ peek at my pot when I am entering my house. So here-here, I am thankful for my non-green thumb that made this pot beautiful in my eyes. sunnyday0002untiddddtled-1

Lastly, I am thankful for my awareness of self (hence the self portrait below). I really feel I am getting into my groove with figuring out me and trying to view myself through God’s eyes. I am taking pride in staying true to myself and it feels great. I definitely think there will be many trials ahead, but I can look back at the ones I have already faced and know that they have made me who I am today. It’s all about the journey and I am here for the ride.


Now go enjoy your BEAUTIFUL weekend. The hubby and I plan on jamming out the holiday music and decorating the house.
