beautiful moments

(Click the photo above enlarge)
I love the fall in California. It is OUR season, where we actually see and even smell the transitions happening: leaves turning and falling, days becoming shorter, harvest and crush in wine country ...just to name a few.
Autumn also means so much to me personally as it is the time that my husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary and then my favorite holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I always tend to focus more on being thankful around this time of year. I reflect on all that I have and count my blessings everyday.

Today, I am thankful for family, friends and Veterans.
I am thankful for the roof over my head and my warm, comfy bed.
I am thankful for the fact that I am employed and able to go to school.
I am thankful for all of those who have encouraged me.
I continue to be thankful and to count blessings, everyday.

Happy Friday!

I loved watching as my sweet girl used not only the brush, but her hands to paint beautiful shades of yellow and green.
I loved watching her expressions as she felt the cool paint between her fingers. She was so very into it! She did not want to put down the paint brush! I am looking forward to more moments filled with discovery as this sweet baby of mine, transforms before my eyes into a little girl....sniff, sniff! Along with the transforming...comes the "NO, NO, NO!".

When does that phase end again?

Still waiting, and enjoying!
