Oh hello there November! Today I thought I’d kick off the month of thanks by sharing some of the things that have been inspiring me or making me feel grateful more than ever 🙂
First up, this family of mine! We’re all a little crazy and we sometimes drive each other crazy, but I wouldn’t trade them for the world and I’m working on doing a better job of showing my gratefullness for them and hopefully maybe driving them a little less crazy 😉
This was a cute little DIY I found on Pinterest recently, it think it would also be easy to just cover an entire mason jar or multiple with leaves too!
Some fall outfit inspo! I love the casual and cozy of these outfits, plus I think they are pieces we probably all have in our closets currently so they’re easy to throw together.
Finally, some quotes recently that have really spoken to me! I hope they reach each of you if you need a little boost as well 🙂
Tomorrow we celebrate one of my very favorite days, my husband’s birthday! Ron is the very best person I know. I don’t mean that lightly, he isn’t one of the best he IS the best!
Ron is such a people person and everyone who knows him loves him! He makes friends with anyone he meets. He has even become the favorite child in my family, seriously even over the dog! And honestly it is a treasure to see my family love him so much 🙂
Ron is so kind. He will help anyone he can in any way that they ask. He is always positive, looking at the bright side of any situation. He forgives easily and doesn’t hold grudges.
Ron is always so supportive. He hugs me, loves me, encourages me, makes me laugh, wipes away my tears, tells me I’m beautiful, and lets me know he appreciates me always.
My husband truly makes me a better person every single day!
Phew, we had a busy yet very fulfilling weekend! I’ll wind it down for you here 😉
On Friday my best friend’s sister got married, Callie is also a really good friend of mine! So after a day of work we got to celebrate in the best way! First my hubby and I went out for drinks and apps after work to hold us over for the wedding/reception, some of his coworkers tagged along.
Of course everything was beautiful and we had SO MUCH FUN at the wedding and reception!
Since we were gone at work all day Friday and then most of the night too at the wedding, I asked my parents to come stay at our house to look after our dogs. Then of course since the whole fam was together we decided we might as well hit up a Tigers game as well! We usually go to a game in May for Mother’s Day but the Tigers were away this year and had the Mother’s day game on a Tuesday…it worked out though that we could go for Father’s Day weekend instead!
We love getting to Detroit early to do a little exploring and then grab some food before the game. We celebrated my dad and had such a fun time! Last year I wrote this post for his birthday and of course this Father’s Day I still feel the same 🙂
Sunday we took it easy and soaked up the last bit of weekend!
It was the 24 Hours of Le Mans race this weekend and it was intense at the end! While the ending was disappointing for us I had to laugh at this progression of Ron…the race was close and my husband may or may not have been slightly stressed lol!
We wrapped up the weekend with dinner out on our deck and then dessert featuring fresh lovely smelling strawberries that I picked up at our local farmer’s market that afternoon, I also made some homemade whipped cream to top them! YUM!
