.... hello Monday .... hello gratitude ....

Hello Monday.... Hello Gratitude.
Hello to being very grateful my husband has returned from his business trip to Pinehurst....
absence truly does make the heart grow fonder.

Hello to a great Saturday shopping with my girl...
and having such fun picking up some grown up pieces.

Hello gratitude???
Yes, this is my oldest son...
and I will be the first to say.... seeing this was not a mother's dream....
but...
since it is what it is...
I am very grateful he was able to work hard to make his dream come true..
I am very grateful he rides with a good head on his shoulders...
My heart is happy... that his heart is happy...
and he is living on his own... supporting himself...
becoming a strong man of integrity.

Hello to finishing this necklace...
that was a year in collecting.
Hello gratitude for seeing this piece to completion.

Hello to a room redo in full swing...
The guest room is going through a serious white out...
Hello to being grateful to Ellis seeing this through.

Hello to the continual need to balance...
getting things accomplished....
while remembering to savor the beauty and people in my life.

Hello to being very excited for dinner in the garden  tomorrow....

with one of my favorite bloggers and her husband...
she lives a Rich Life.... and is traveling through Southern California...
Hello gratitude for new friendships.

as always 

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
