    Wow! So much to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing (I love the pictures) and reminding me to count my blessings. I’ve been going through a rough patch, but I still know I have much good in my life. 🥰

    • You’re right Cindy, there is always something to be thankful for, even in the rough times…perhaps especially in the rough times. Still, I hope things smooth out for you soon. I am grateful that I have you as a sister. XOXO

  2. Hi Christie – Wren is such a pretty name – and I loved seeing you with all your family together and starting early with celebrating such a momentous occasion. Great photos and a nice reminder of how blessed we are to be able to enjoy so many little things in life. I did my 3 monthly wrap up post this week and felt similar gratitude for all that I have in my life.

    • The party was such a fantastic surprise, Leanne. I am deeply grateful for my family and so enjoy having them all together in one room. I’ll be over to visit your monthly wrap-up post soon. I always enjoy that. Here’s to another great month.

    I am thankful for the cooler weather, the beautiful fall colors, my health, and being able to finish the hikes. I am thankful for the encouragement and support of friends and loved ones. I am thankful for cleaner air. I am thankful for this post. I have had a rough few days and the timing is so helpful to shift my focus. There is SO much to be thankful for.

    • Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to share your thoughts, Stacie. I am so impressed by you and your determination to complete the hiking challenge every year, come what may. I found myself making excuses and ended up at nine. They were nine lovely hikes, though, many of which I probably wouldn’t have done without the challenge, so I am thankful to EMI Health for that and to my coworkers for cheering me on. I love the fall and am also grateful for the cooler temps and cleaner air. If my gratitude post helped in some small way during a challenging time, I am grateful for that. Thank you for sharing. Happy fall!

  4. Hi Christie, happy birthday to you, what a lovely surprise from your family! I love these positive notes for the month. We don’t do the whole pumpkin spice things here in October but it always makes me smile to read about how popular it is over your way. I love clouds too and this last month I captured a random heart shaped cloud as i was out walking in the paddock, just a bit of joy! I’m grateful for Springtime and looking forward to warmer weather. Enjoy your October x

    • Thank you Deb. It really was so wonderful having the children and grandchildren all together celebrating with me. I love when heart shapes show up in nature. As you said, it brings that little bit of added joy. Happy spring to you!
