Sorry, no photo today.  I have been trying all afternoon to figure out how to take a picture of my gratitude today and I just can’t figure it out.  Today I am grateful for silence.  My husband took the boys to his parents house for the week-end.  I have two whole days to work in silence with no interruptions.   As most of you know, this is the busiest time of year for my work.  I do plan to work most of the time that they are away, but am still looking forward to some quiet time.

I have  been working long hours getting ready for the Holiday card season.  I am almost done.  Today I am grateful for the awesome new cards that we are going to carry this year.  Hopefully this doesn’t sound shallow that I am grateful for this, but it gave me the push that I have needed to get into the spirit.  My heart has not been in the business  this year and I need to get back there.  I am grateful for these awesome new cards.  They will be added to the website next week :) to www.doodlebugdezigns.com (Please excuse the horrible photos.  I didn’t realize how bad the colors were until I added them here.)

These are double sided cards with printing on both sides.

I couldn’t  be happier that it has rained all day today.  Seems like it’s been months since we had a day like this.

Today I am grateful for a great hike in the woods with the boys. (YES- there was lots of bribery involved with this picture)

Today I am grateful for a quiet afternoon.  We enjoyed lemonade together on the porch.

Snow!  Yes- we are grateful for snow today.

We are over the heat.  Today was the first day of Fall.  It’s still 90 degrees.   It’s humid.  It hasn’t rained for weeks.  The pool has closed for the season.  We need the Fall weather.  So, we decided to make the snow.  Kids had a blast and we were grateful for  a good way to occupy our afternoon.

Protein!  That’s right, I am thankful for protein success.  With two picky kids, I am forever looking for  a way to sneak protein into dinner.  These are my newly famous protein pancakes with cottage cheese and lots of egg sugar crystals.    Call me a bad parent, it’s ok- I have resorted to disguising it where ever I can.

Today I am grateful for old friends.  These kids all went to preschool together.  We only see them once or twice a year, but it was so great to see them last week.

What a day!  Today a  friend of mine invited me to fallow her along on a newborn shoot.  She did warn me that it could take several hours.  I defiantly had no idea what a newborn shoot entails.  The baby was exactly two weeks old.  He was a champ.  She took photos for 4 hours.  Lots of prop changes, feeding the baby and changing backdrops.  The whole thing was a great workout.  Today I am extremely grateful for this opportunity.  I took some neat photos too and had a blast.  I loved seeing the entire process from start to finish.  It’s pretty safe to say that I will never be a newborn photographer.  Yikes!  Thanks Kimberly!
