Counting my Blessings…


As Thanksgiving is almost here, I can’t help but be reminded to be thankful for all the blessings in my life. My children mostly, who fill my heart with so much love. Our new adopted dog, Bob and cat, Sam. My business that continues to slowly flourish and fill me with a deep sense of pride and happiness. My faith, strength and trust and for the charming little cottage that we call home.

thankful and blessed

For the continued support, encouragement, friendships and inspiration from all of the wonderful people who inspire me and follow along with me every day. For this, I send you big giant hug and a thank you from the bottom of my heart.

For these things I am grateful.


I’ve been pretty sick over the past couple of weeks and haven’t felt up to decorating much, so kept things very simple. I added wheat bundles all over the house along with my little pumpkins and lots of candles. Sometimes though, simple is so much more.

I’d love to hear how you all decorate for Fall and Thanksgiving.

Here is a charming free printable from the Graphics Fairy. If you haven’t ever visited her site, it is an absolute must. She has so many wonderful free printables.

Well thanks so much for stopping by!

Wishing you all continued blessings. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families and if for some reason you aren’t able to spend Thanksgiving with the ones you love, take the time to yourself, to remind yourself how important and special you are! Count the blessings that you have and be good to yourself.

    Hello Tammy,
    I loved what you said about simple being so much more…Your Thanksgiving decor is simplistically pretty. In Canada we celebrated our Thanksgiving in October. I used pumpkin mini’s and Alstroemeria’s as part of my decor. I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you feel better:)
