snuggles, old friend and laughter {day 342}


I woke up to this pup laying his head on my shoulder. He is my second favorite snuggler to wake up to. 🙂
I also got to see an old friend tonight and spent a few hours reminiscing, chatting and laughing a lot.
I’m grateful for good beginnings and ends to this day.

silly {day 263} (late)


this weekend we had to drive up to Rhinelander for the sweet hub’s grandma’s funeral. it was a long and hard and exhausting weekend. but my hubby and I stopped on our way out of town to take a picture with the hodag, a Rhinelander legend. I am grateful for a hubs who makes the best of crappy situations and likes to laugh.

silly & new {day 246}

Today the thing I’m most grateful for is this sweet text from Harlow and her mama. I love to see Harlow’s silly spirit shining through.

I’m also grateful for a hubby who sends me pictures of my veggies sprouting and who invites me to kill zombies with him and his friends. 🙂

*If you’re interested, this is the page where you can donate to help Harlow’s family with the already rising costs for Harlow’s medical treatments. If you aren’t able to donate, please consider sharing the link with your social circles. Thank you!*

today I am grateful for music that made my hour+ commute each way the most enjoyable in awhile. in case you’ve missed it, I’m seriously loving the new Mumford album.

for friends eating sardines (you were a great sport!)



and for cheese balls, shaving cream, and sweet high school friend’s faces.

and last, but not least, for coming home to a super silly husband who always makes me laugh.
