brain exercise {day 321}

20130626-104903.jpg

I am one of those really nerdy people who loves to learn. Pretty much anything. I love school supplies, challenging classes, stretching myself to learn something hard. I know, like I said, nerd. I’m okay with that. So today I’m grateful for a good “teacher” who helped me learn all the behind the scenes floral design stuff, like figuring out how many and what flowers to order and creating an invoice. I know that probably seems super lame, but I enjoyed a few hours of being challenged.

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned lately?

I know I’ve been saying it a lot recently, but I am feeling grateful again that I get to do stuff like this (^). for. my. job. It is an amazing gift to be able to be a part of such a special day in peoples’ lives and to be a part of making really beautiful things out of already beautiful things. Being surrounded by flowers? Awesome!

What’s your dream job?

flexibility {day 308} (late)

today I am grateful for a job (and sweet boss) that allows me to put the most important things first. I love my job, but I was thankful to be able to leave early to get my sick hubs to the doctor. It feels good to be able to keep the most important things first. 🙂

little things {day 295}

tonight I am grateful for:
the dream job. I cannot believe that I get to arrange flowers. for a job. even when things are not coming together as easily as I’d like, I know this job is a blessing.

for dinner and friends and ice cream and signs that make us laugh and wonder.

for a hubby and puppy who always greet me at the door when I get home,
and for ceramics that are in one piece and actually look kind of cool. 🙂

I love this quite from Mumford. the next line is “make you more like the man you were meant to be.” I am grateful for a husband who loves me so well that I think I am more and more like the person I was meant to be. I couldn’t do it without his encouragement and support. blessed.
