snuggles {day 357}

today I hurt my back somehow trying to hold moj down while I cut his hair (which apparently really needs to be a 2 person job). but then he cuddled me non-stop while I was lying on the couch icing and heating my poor back.

so today I am grateful for a sweet pup who loves us enough to comfort us when we are hurting.

I had an amazing time at camp but I am SO thankful to be home and snuggling with my sweet hubs and pup. I am also grateful for my welcome home gift which I am excited to read and am told is meant to encourage me to “stay on the couch (reading) and never leave.” love my hubby.

and for a day that ended safely back at home like this

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. 🙂

also for falling asleep to the sound of rain and a cool breeze.

what are you grateful for today, brave friends?

so much cuteness {day 264} (late)

20130430-074225.jpg

my mom and dad are awesome and were willing to watch moj for us while we were out of town this weekend, even though they have 3 dogs of their own. so yesterday (because I fell asleep before writing this…oops), after drew’s procedure (not fun), we went to pick up our pup. next thing I know, moj and sweet hubs are both snoring away next to me on the couch. it was the sweetest thing.

what are YOU grateful for today?
