pretty pretty peonies

The day of my last post I had one of those days where extremes of delight and heartbreak were had.  It was snowy and beautiful outside. I was reminded of how wonderful and exciting life is and reminded of the things that aren't beautiful and exciting about life at the same time.  It was one of those weird days.  I came home to these super pretty peonies!! Isn't it incredible what something natural and pretty can do to your spirit?! I am always surprised at how mysterious the world is. I love it. And my husband for surprising me with perfect timing.

I'm feeling a little under the weather today. I feel that yearly cold coming and I have to admit I'm a total baby when it comes to being sick.  I don't like taking medicine so I just have to tough it out with tea and enough orange juice to make me jaundice.  Although I feel achy and lousy I know that I could be so much worse and have been thinking about the things that I am thankful for (I know I missed the boat for this post during Thanksgiving time) so in no particular order I present to you a few things that I am thankful for.

I am thankful for:

- family
- friends (near and far)
- for my husband- Christopher who always supports my ambitions and crazy pursuits
- my mom who is an incredible lady and always an inspiration to me (she deserves her own post)
- little bunnies because they are just TOO cute (especially ours)
- peonies-carnations-and wild flowers because they always bring a smile to my face
- photography because it fills me so and keeps memories alive
- the love of something greater than all the beautiful things that exist or that I could conceive
- Coca Cola classic for being so tasty (although it is my total weakness and vice)
- little things like my scanner scanning polaroids without newton rings all of a sudden(!!), having a cornerstore right next door to our building, the way snow decorates naked trees, how B&H is so super fast delivering items to me and finding blogs and photos online that make your heart swell.

What are you thankful for these days?
