Yesterday was a day of blessings!...


Gifts galore! I was going to take pictures, but that would take more time than I have today.

First, my friend Traci called me up and told me she was bringing over Christmas Cheer...I'm sorry, but there is nothing happier than someone bringing over Christmas Cheer...I don't even care what that "cheer" might be. That is completely dreamy. And it WAS...yummy Double Chocolate Shake Lip Balm being held by the softest bear ornament.


Second, my friend Alison sent me a care package from CA...filled with TRADER JOES gingerbread and pumpkin baking mixes (trader joes is the only thing missing from Colorado...if you are reading this and have any influence in this wonderful store, PLEASE tell them that us Colorodoans are wilting from their absense), soft soft soft socks, and a gift card to Yankee Candle where I will get the yummiest candle ever invented...the PUMPKIN PIE candle.

I got lights up on our house without falling off the ladder, got collages done, calls made, bills paid, dinner on the table (okay, it was just chicken nuggets, but that counts right?), and watched the Real Housewives of Orange County (yes, I've been sucked in).

All in all, it was a good day. A many blessings kind of day. And I am so thankful. It's 9am now and I am going to PROOF a session, listen to my favorite Amy Grant Christmas Album from 1983, and drink my chocolate-mint flavored coffee, while my lips smell like a chocolate shake. Yay for that. Off I go!

i just wanted to say that i TOTALLY understand about missing trader joes. it's a hole in my life that can't be filled. i'm still not sure why illinois had them, but colorado doesn't. weird.

also, big props on the original amy grant christmas album. LOVE IT. i have to listen to it many many times every christmastime.

i'm so happy you had such a wonderfully blessing filled day! see you at study tomorrow???
