I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Thankful Thursday #9

Today I'm kind of struggling with a Thankful Thursday post. I mean of course I have gratitude in my heart for the obvious-family,friends,a home. That kind of thing doesn't go away. But when you're in a funk it's easy to forget that kind of  good stuff. I'm not sure why I'm feeling like I do. The sun is shining and it's a gorgeous day. I'm just feeling a tad over overwhelmed and I'm mulling over some decisions that need to be made. And as much as I love that Emma is so involved it's hard to do everything she wants to do as there are 3 other children in this family that deserve just as much attention.

Last night I just kind of sat there on the front porch with a cup of tea and was feeling sorry for myself. Which is so lame but I couldn't shake these feelings of pity on my shoulders. So my husband-who had to run an errand- made me go with him. Just the 2 of us.Lately we've been getting some more time together and for that I'm grateful.Even if we are sitting in the car and no words are spoken or maybe we are at the store picking out chips. It's the just the 2 of us for a brief time. I think we spend so much time co-parenting that it's easy to forget that first we were a couple.

Taken up on Mt.Washington a few weeks into dating.

So today I'm grateful for alone time with the one I love. It's rare and it's precious. It's so needed.

Love the way you're so transparent. Hope you lose the funk soon. I love rare moments alone with my husband too, always moments to treasure.

I'm sorry to hear about the funk, those things stink. I hope you can shake it soon.
Time alone with the hubby is wonderful, I hope that helps.
I'll be praying for you.
