blessings this week

this week has been a complete whirlwind!
but it was still a good week.
i am blessed because i am able to...

...go thrifting
that frame is now a chalkboard message board :)

...make my own coffee syrup
no more paying $5 for a latte!

...start yet another blanket.
i w.i.l.l. complete this one!

... have wet toes
which mean that it is warm outside, snow is melting,
and i am enjoying the warmth while it lasts.

... be reminded of many good times
with this mug that my bestie made me for christmas
so many memorable quotes
i laugh every time i use it.

happy almost weekend!
