Giving Thanks

We made this Thanksgiving Tree and for the past few days, we've been talking about things we're all thankful for. 'A' and I started listing our things and found that our lists overlapped completely, so she decided that she was thankful for all of the same things I'm thankful for. This year, that's okay. The day will come when she will be enough of her own person, with independent thoughts and hopes and dreams, and she will have her own things to be thankful for. I know she won't always want to think like me, and I look forward to meeting the person she becomes. I'm thankful for our lives together, for the future that waits for us, and for the closeness that we have today.

About Me

My name is Jillian. I started this blog as a way to experiment with my camera and it's a become a nice little spot where I enjoy spending time. I'm a mother to 6 and 4 year old daughters, wife to a cool computer guy, and mama to a cuddly cat. We enjoy eating local, organic food; managing several food allergies; homeschooling with love; spending time in nature; and we love to take time each day to be creative.
