good friends & good days

yesterday was a good day.
i sat in my big comfy chair sipping coffee, listening to a little van morrison on pandora
& feeling grateful for several things.

i've been somewhat buried in some work things lately
so it felt great to get back to the gym.
then onto cowboy boot shopping with a friend that i love spending time with.

two friends blessed me yesterday is ways that probably in the grand scheme of life aren't monumental
were monumental to me.
a sweet friend that would drive across town to hand me free tickets for this weekends UGA game
(it's AXO parent weekend with savannah!!)
a sweet friend who sent me a book that i can't wait to read
& i look forward to sharing with you soon~

both of them touched my heart
& reminded me that the Lord sees all that we do
& often times blesses us through the tangible gifts of another.

came home & opened my mailbox to  find
the antrhopologie christmas catalog
garnet hill holiday catalog
mini boden holiday catalog
pottery barn holiday catalog
& a refund check from our insurance company!

had a great catch up conversation with my Hawaii bestie
enjoyed having the windows open to a glorious breezy day
& spent some time editing photos of a super cute baby girl.

i pulled up our own photos from halloween & thought how happy i am for caroline.
she's really found a sweet sweet niche of precious little girls.
she went to camp with several
is in a bible study with them
dances with them
& feels like she has a great group of friends at school.
not a click, but a group of girls who she loves spending time with.

she came home from school the other day
& said, mama, i'm so happy that i'm friends with these girls
& i think they like me.

with great magazines, good friends,
generous people that inspire me to be a giver
hazelnut coffee at 3 o'clock
& homemade pizza for dinner
it was definitely a good day.

(not sure why i look like i'm walking a balance beam here)

for those of you interested in creating a photobook for one of your holiday gifts,

Hole in My Gospel is a great book, it will definitely inspire you!

I love my catalogs so much too that when we moved, I made sure to give all my catalogs my new address (hubby thought I was a little nuts).

What a great day! I am almost giddy when I open the mail box and I have catalogs to go thru.

Caroline's costume is cute, and looks like her and her friends have a great time together! I love to see all the different costumes!

Girlie, you look terrific; I love the jacket and the scarf (and the shoes look adorable and super comfy)!

Take care!
