  1. I have always extra liked your Thank You notes, Christie. I could not help but notice the tights. Fun! A friend of mine has a planter hanging on her wall. You are now only the second person I have seen with a similar planter. Nice! I am always thankful for the abundance of “good” in my life. Thank you for being part of the “good.”🙂

    I’ve been feeling a bit stressed and overwhelmed lately. This post made me stop and think of all the good in my life and I have MUCH to be thankful for. Thanks for the reminder!

    • You’re welcome Cindy. There certainly is plenty to stress over. Remembering that there is joy and beauty even in the most difficult of times keeps me going. Here’s to a happy, gratitude filled November!

  3. Hi Christie – another great positive post. Loved your birthday balloons and flowers (happy belated birthday) and having great in-laws is wonderful isn’t it? Also smiled at your “lovely” orange halloween tights and the granddaughter hug is priceless xx
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I’ve shared on my SM 🙂

  4. These posts are among my faves. And check me out, spelled that word fave the right way!!
    How sweet to receive flowers in your hotel room!! I am certain Larry’s family’s love for you is just an indication of how easy you are to love.

    Did you great that succulent garden in a class of some sort or did you guys just make them together for your birthday celebration? What a fun project.

    Your orange tights are such fun. I enjoy wearing patterned and textured tights but have nothing that compares with your Halloween hosiery.

    That Piper is pretty cute. Clearly crazy about YOU!! And I think you are pretty special, too.

  5. Your thank you notes always make me stop and think about everything I too have to be thankful for. Thank you for continuing to write them and prompting that gratitude thinking in my own life.

  6. Hi Christie
    Love, love your succulents! And it is a masterpiece! I think it’s great you take the time to think about what you have been thankful for
    1. I’m smiling today because my co-worker decorated my cubicle in purple in honor of my daughter’s last collegiate soccer game
    2. Hmm. I booked a great Airbnb and my husband was pretty happy with that. I think that made him smile!
    Thanks for the great post!

  7. What am I smiling about right now? Those Halloween tights of course! I really love your thank you notes. They’re a little reminder in busy days to stop and appreciate the little things that mean so much. #MLSTL

  8. Hi Christie,
    I’m thankful for your “Thank-you notes” as they always bring a smile to my face. The picture with your granddaughter is priceless.
    I’m thankful and excited…my son’s wedding “Save the Date” just arrived, with a fabulous picture of him and Melissa. Very thankful he found her; she’s a perfect match!
    Have a great week…

    • I’m grateful for you Nancy–your friendship and support. That is wonderful that your son found his perfect match and that you love her too. I have such a wonderful relationship with my own mother-in-law. I wish that for everyone!
