Gratitude, part 2

November is the perfect month to celebrate gratitude.  Which is exactly what Shutter Sisters is doing this month via their One Word Project.  They have teamed up with Memolio and an organization called Epic Change for their Tweetsgiving. You can find more information about that exciting collaboration here.

I have decided to celebrate gratitude along with them this month.

I am grateful for a lot today.

  • I am grateful that the Shutter Sisters chose my namaste photo as their One Word Project photo of the day.
  • I am grateful for Memolio who will be sponsoring a blog contest here soon. (yes a contest. with prizes. on this blog. yay! details are forthcoming…)
  • And and I am forever grateful for good friends….and coffee.

Yesterday I had coffee with 2 of my favorite ladies.

And this baby.

Meet Danny. Isn’t he just the happiest, cutest, I want to pinch your cheeks baby EVER?

And this baby’s mom is a totally amazing woman.

Just trust me on this one. Sharon is truly amazing. And she’s an even more amazing mom.

You might also remember these guys from not too long ago.

They were there too. Keeping busy as you can see.

Lexi is another fantastically amazing woman. And her son Alexander is super cute. And super smart!

He is only 3 (almost 4, but who’s counting?) and he LOVES puzzles. And he’s good at them. REALLY good. Even ones with 100 pieces. Go Alexander!!

And he’s so proud when he finishes one!

Lexi, Sharon and I have been friends for over 15 years. Yep, 15.  Time has sent us in many different directions. We’ve each had our share of joys, successes, sorrows. And no matter where the wind blows us we have always been there for each other. In person. On the phone. Via email. Flickr. Twitter. We’ve stayed in touch. We’ve laughed. We’ve cried. We’ve been silly. And the common thread that binds us?


Starbucks Coffee.

Somehow all roads always lead us back to our regular coffee dates. Where we can talk and talk and talk. About anyone. And anything.  Our date last night was a long time coming. It had been over 3 years since our last Starbucks gathering. Alexander was the size of baby Danny at our last meeting!  But this date was just like the others. It felt so right. And so relaxed. And so needed. I am so glad to have these amazing ladies (and their amazing children) in my life.

That is why I am grateful today.

What are you grateful for?
