My colorful, creative, loving, caring and sparkling girl Isabella. She brings so much joy into my days.
Amazing, fun and supportive, life-long friends...friends since grade school - priceless for sure.
Being interviewed for a local magazine called 30 West - yay!
Achieving one of my goals of having my artwork for sale in a "real" shop, the Waxwing in Shorewood.
A new sweet little niece Cora born this August.
Attending the Bloom True Artist Retreat by Flora Bowley this September (another item I had on my list of dreams and goals for this year).
Of course I have tons more to be thankful for, like my eye sight, the beautiful sky, my cozy house, my creative community of friends, etc. but these are just a few that stood out from 2012.
I found this great quote yesterday while reading the book Daring Greatly by Brene Brown and I'll leave you with this:
"It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful"
by Brother David Steindl-Rast.
What are some of the things you are grateful for from the past year? I'd love to hear them--it always makes my heart full to hear what others are thankful for.
Thanks for stopping by - I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
