Day 7-9 with #30DaysofThanks

Day 7:  I am thankful for the color purple.  Now this may seem silly to a lot of people but the color purple makes me smile, it is calming to me and somedays that is extremely important.

Continuing on my journey of 30 Days of Thankfulness! Day 2:  I am thankful for Hubs!  I woke up on Sunday morning to a very dark house, and a very dark neighborhood.  The power was out, which is usually just an inconvenience but since it was first thing in the morning it was far more.  Coffee pots run on electricity, so does the stove so without electricity there is no way to heat up water for coffee in our house even though we have a pour-over coffee maker and a stovetop espresso pot.  This is Continue reading
