After a weekend of sporadic internet connection, it feels wonderful being able to finally post again. Being a few days without good internet definitely made me grateful for the many blessings that I have, one being this blog. I am so grateful that I have a space that is my own where I can share my love for the good things in this life, like lipstick and books, and everything in between.
Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in Canada, which always makes me stop to think about what it is I am grateful for. I try to think about the smaller things that I forget about, like being able to watch Netflix when I want to, or being able to put my thoughts down on paper so that I can remember how I felt years from now, or the times that I am forced to take a break. Of course there are the big things, like our family, our home, Christopher’s job, and my schooling. I am always grateful for the big things (though I’m not always good at showing it), but I have found that remembering the small things will always make me a more grateful person. Like I said in my Instagram post yesterday, having “an attitude of gratitude” makes all the difference!
I hope that you have had a lovely Thanksgiving! We are back to regular posting this week, and I have a lot of things to talk about!
