a happy list
one // Having an absolutely amazing blended family. I love and appreciate my family. How we are always there for each other and include each other in as many things as possible.
two // Celebrating my birthday. My coworkers were so wonderful and decorated my desk, baked me an apple pie, and bought me sweet gifts. Not to mention, my secret pal dropped off an adorable birthday gift basket while I was on my break! Then, when I got home John surprised me with a Cricut!
three // Signing up for my first 5k for 2018. Because of “early bird” deals, I could not help but register more than six months in advance for the Bubble Run 5k. I only had to pay a $20 registration fee! I did the Bubble Run 5k earlier this year and had such a fun time.
four // My cousin and his girlfriend getting ready to have their baby! They were admitted to the hospital the day before my birthday on the eighth and we are all eagerly awaiting his arrival.
five // Getting a new roof on our home. While this was not our first choice to spend such a large sum of money on, it was a must. A few weekends ago our roof began to leak! Since then, every time it would rain (which has been every day) we would stress out. We are definitely thankful to have a new roof over our heads with a thirty year warranty.
six // New purchases. Recently I have bought a few goodies to treat myself. One of my favorites is the Make Yourself at Home book by Moorea Seal!
