This week I'm thankful for...
Small things, unlikely treasures, keepsakes, souvenirs.
The sun seems to show-off most when it's setting in the fall. It's nice to have a moment to pause and watch it go off.
Time to play on new surfaces

This country is special.
Before Scott and I left for a surf shop party the other night, I was putting away a necklace in the jewelry box he gave me when he proposed. When he asked what I kept in there, I showed him how I saved all the little metal keys that came as the tags on some of our wedding gifts. He admired one in the fading daylight and said "It says 'Pottery Barn' on it" and we laughed. I love sentimental things, even if they are retail gimmicks.
I'm thankful for my friends and their quirks. Here, Basia demonstrates both her beautiful long hair and her total inattention to tangles.
I thought the waves were going to be bad yesterday, but they weren't.
Our kitchen is missing. We're having 20 people over for "Friendgiving" in t-minus eight days. I'm trying to use this experience as an opportunity to grow into a more mellow and go-with-the-flow kind of person. Mostly, I just keep telling myself "It will all get done. It will all get done" and then leaving the house.
It's nice to put your feet up after a day that has been both long and short.
I don't really like graffiti, but the positive, eventually erasable kind isn't so bad.
What are you thankful for this week?
p.s. if you buy an ad on my blog from now until next Friday I will donate 100% of the proceeds to the American Red Cross disaster relief in the Philippines. Same with Oh Dear Drea. Contact me here!
