I want to tell you that I love your 'grumpy day' thankful post. That is such a beautiful truth, and I appreciate the honest way you wrote it. Thanks for keepin' it real, girlfriend! ;) I have those days too...

I second what Melanie said! I can always count on you to keep it real :) I hope you're feeling less overwhelmed and more rested. I'm impressed that you got all of your Christmas down - we're still going strong over here, although there's a competition going on between the tree and the toys, and I think the toys are going to win :)

You little man's chubby cheeks remind me of my son when he was that little. Enjoy them! One day you'll wonder where they went and how your baby officially became a boy!

Your pictures, your art, they make your thankful list stunning every week.

My faves:

• naturally 1844
• 1850 – I think that’s astounding – makes me smile
• 1860 – wow – really – excellent
• 1867 – it’s a miracle isn’t it?

May God Bless and keep you and yours this day
