So much has changed since this post one year ago! Children really do grow up much too quickly. I am so thankful for my beautiful, funny, healthy, happy boy! And I am thankful for his lovely singing (see the far right photo)! I am thankful for my sweet, kind, compassionate and patient husband. I am also thankful for my family, wonderful friends, their children and all of the blessings in our lives.

I am thankful that I didn’t let fear keep me from chasing my dreams. I am thankful that you all stop by every day to read and comment on my musings. I am thankful for my new photography clients who have trusted me to capture their families. I am thankful for my event planning clients who let me get creative every single day to fulfill their vision for their parties and weddings!

I am thankful for my current health as I head off to run a 5K in Washington D.C. this morning with a dear friend from high school. This is my first race since a year before I got pregnant.

Today, I am thankful that I am in a far better place as a mama than I was last year at this time. I am thankful that parenting has forced me taught me to truly live in the moment. I am thankful that I get to spend LOTS of time with my family and sweet boy in the coming weeks as we get ready to celebrate Christmas.

Life is full of challenges and beauty! Today, I choose to focus on the beauty! Will you join me? Happy Thanksgiving!
