I wanted to take a moment to tell you something.
I'm glad you exist.
Without you and me as a team, this blog probably wouldn't be here. You, my friend, are who I write to each day. You, my lovey, are so very special to me. You responses to my posts and the conversations we have fill me. I am grateful for you.
You know what else I'm grateful for?
Wine. Last night I went to my book club's annual wine-tasting/end of the year event. They welcomed me back with open arms since I haven't been around much because of school. The ladies filled me in on all the books I should make time for and the ones I can pass on. They gave me love from one book lover to another. I tried some amazing wines last night and left the little event happy, loved, and yup...a little tipsy. Thankful for moments of me time with the kind of people I love to be around. Also, pretty grateful that my hubby picked me up so I wouldn't have to drive - ha!
I enjoyed this week. I avoided drama and let the circus be theirs not mine. "Not my circus. Not my monkeys," as Glennon said this week on Instagram yesterday. I'm finished with this semester of class and so very thankful that I get a little break until January or so. I'm planning on filling it with lots of reading, lots of time with Penelope, baking with the kids, and alone time with the hubby when the kids are asleep (wink!). I'm grateful for the little things that make my world big and wonderful.
I was thinking about something this week. It's almost time for everyone to pick their Little Word of the Year. What will yours be? I'm stuck between a few because Brave Enough was so powerful for me this year. I made a leap of faith this year and tried to really put my truth out there and be brave enough to do so. The response and love I've received because of this has made me so full. So full of strength, love...just everything. I'm so very grateful that I found my personal brand of brave this year.
So, tell me. What was your word this year? What books should I read during break that I missed these last six months? Anything you need from me? I'm here for ya, babe:)
