I'm thankful for...




I know we don't have Thanksgiving here in Aus but I think it's always great to be thankful for what you have. So here's my thankful list...

Having Christ in my life
 Having a wonderful, beautiful family
My absolute best friend and amazing hubby Jason
My gorgeous friends
Lovely, lovely lovely blog friends/pen pals (who I consider real friends too)
Owning a home
The ability to see, hear, taste, touch, smell and use those to wonder at all the beauty around
Hugs!
Being blessed beyond anything that I could imagine
Being so loved by my Creator, my family and friends and husband


And a less serious list

Books, books, books!
Stationery stores
Etsy and other fantastic online shops
Candle light, fairy lights, star light - soft light
Wonderfully written book characters
Mail and packages (to send and receive yay)

There would be so much more on this list but this is just a brief overview. I hope you all have a wonderful and fantastic weekend!

P.S I bought a 7ft green Christmas tree last night. I can't wait to put it up!!

Great list and very similar to mine!

I can't wait to see your tree - how massive are 7ft trees! So many decorations are needed to fill it out.
