six smiles.

Thanksgiving was a bit early this year, and I felt like we were given a little “bonus” week to prepare for holiday festivities.  I think this year I will actually have some time to really enjoy the moment because I got so much done over the last 2 weeks.  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Enjoy!

As the month of December rolls along, let’s try to be thankful for the everyday “stuff” that we have.  Let’s try to decrease the list of “stuff” we want.  I think we will feel really good about ourselves if we do this together.  Cheers to December 2012!  Smiles this week as follows:

I spied a cardinal sitting in the branches along my porch, but he would not let me get too close.
