Gratitude - Day 12 & 13

These last couple of days, I am truly grateful for:

Paula Blundell- She generously brought me along on one of her professional organizing jobs and I had the BEST time! There is something so totally rewarding about organizing someone elses chaos. And getting paid for it?! Amazing! We make a great team, P!

Sleep. Going to bed early, spending a little extra time snuggling during our lazy mornings. Sleep has felt so good lately!

Resourceful friends. It seems whenever we have a dilemma that needs fixing or a project looking for guidance, we have a wealth of amazing, smart, talented, and skilled friends to draw from. Especially with planning our wedding- little things that can end up costing SO MUCH seem to all be covered by our talented friend base. We love ALL of you so much!!

Sunny and warm Sundays. Finn and I are looking forward to a hot coffee (me) and a walk over to swing on the swings (Finn). Spring fever is starting to hit us hard!

New pals! We have met a few really awesome people through somewhat unconventional means (like Instagram-) But there are seriously some amazing people out there!! Carli and family - you guys are so rad! I feel like we have known each other forever and I love being inspired by every single blog post and picture. Your family is so wonderful and we are grateful everyday to have found you! Michelle, Dustan and your sweet little daughters- we are SO stoked on the birth of your newest little dumpling, Evie (and by the same midwives that delivered Finn! eeeep!) Your family is so in sync with ours and I really look forward to summertime bike rides, park plays, and picnics with our munchkins!

Old pals! Stephanie, Becky, Holly, Sarah (and my Mom!) We went wedding dress shopping yesterday. Though the day was far from being an episode of 'Say Yes to the Dress', we did make much progress in discovering what I DO NOT want, and that in it self is very valuable. Thank you ladies for taking time out of your busy schedules to watch me get unexcited about dress after dress- your love, support and valuable feedback made the day a really positive one and I am so eternally grateful to have each of you in my life. xo
organizing machine!
