I have so many things I am thankful for, I would list them all but I think that would take a long long time, so I will just list the things I have been thinking about lately.

My mom made Axel this BEAUTIFUL quilt! She told me she wanted to make him one, but I had no idea it would be so detailed and amazing! Isn't it so beautiful? He loves it too, he sleeps in his bed now like a charm thanks to the quilt. :) Seriously this picture doesn't do it justice. There is so much detail in it and it is all done so well. She is amazing!

My mom is so great, I need to give her props for this weekend. Not only did she put on a full spread for thanksgiving, she spent her vacation helping my sister move, and then throwing together a breakfast for my brother and his family. She is so self sacrificing. I am really grateful for her and her support, she really is the glue that holds our family together. I know this will be a much treasured quilt for many many years and hopefully generations to come. Thanks mom!

My dear friend Diana came into town and just so happened made Axel a blanket too! It is so adorable! And she seriously did such an awesome job! Thanks D!

I am so grateful for my group of "girlfriends". I love it how we can live far away from each other and not see each other for months or years and when we get together its like no time has passed at all! I used to get a lot of anxiety whenever these said reunions would happen, but then one day I realized that it didn't matter that my hair wasn't as cute or my clothes weren't as fashionable as all my super model friends, what mattered was that these girls are my friends, and loved me when I was in high school in my most awkward of phases and they still love me now.

I am so thankful for my little family. I have such a great husband who just adores my son, and a son who just adore his papa. These boys make my life complete, not to get all sappy on you or anything but, Kory seriously is such an awesome husband. He works so hard, and puts up with all my emotional drama, and he lets me stay home with my baby boy. Right there makes me the luckiest women in the world. My baby is the sweetest, handsomest little guy EVER! I love being his mama, and that he loves being my boy.

I have two of the most awesome dogs! They are so loyal and loving. No matter what they are always so glad to see me. They are so good around Axel, it's as if they know how special he is to us.

Lastly, I am grateful for the moments I get to myself to cultivate my talents and enjoy and reflect on all my many many blessings. I am a pretty lucky girl.
