I am grateful for a family that cares well for each other, works to stay connected, and loves to laugh.
also, since I didn’t get this post done last night I can now say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!!!

from breakfast and (awesome) presents in bed,
to awesome texts and phone calls and messages from amazing friends and family,
to homemade cards and an afternoon spent like this:

I felt so blessed and loved today.

today I am grateful for sore muscles that remind me that the things that matter are worth standing up for. also grateful for rest, for snuggles with my sweet little family, and then for Sunday dinner with my family. I love getting together, sharing good food, and just being together.

what’s your favorite thing that your family regularly does together?

which turned back to rain in time for us to go to justin and keeley’s for the first night of our new tradition…family sunday dinners. I’m grateful that keeley thought this up and that we get to regularly spend time with the people we love! good, blessed day of rest.
