Ok ok, as most of you know I am obsessed with a few things- houses/ decor and reality television shows. If you put the two together what do you get….Tori Spelling’s house. Now I understand that she comes off sometimes as an overindulged LA princess but boy is she one heck of a decorator!! I adore this house!

ladies and gentlemen..

Introducing my Boyf. I love love love this picture of him.. I think he is the perfect balance between Superman and dial-a-geek!

This man plays video games that play themselves, fixes my dad’s computer, eats sushi with me 1200 times a week, sends me nice emails, plans for our future, holds my hand, is under the illusion that I have blonde ‘moments’ (more like decades), loves my family, downloads television shows, feeds me when I’m cranky, listens when I’m being unreasonable, books my car in for wheel alignments and above all, he makes me laugh.

I could go on and on and on and on, but for today, HE is what Im thankful for.
What are you thankful for?
Happy Monday

3 Things Im Thankful For.

I realised this week that I whinge too much. I don’t always appreciate what I have like I should, I take life and love for granted. But lets face it, we all do.

So, to change this, I have added a new regular post (inspired by a beautiful email sent to me from the Boyf) ‘3 things Im thankful for’…

  1. I am thankful for my family. They are wonderfully supportive and encourage me to pursue all that life has to offer.
  2. I am thankful for those sticky velcro things that allow me to put up art and my framed travel photos on the wall with having to use a hammer. I am thankful that I have travel photos.
  3. I am thankful for my body type. Although I think it will be something that I battle with forever (as all women do), deep down, I love my curves and my womanliness.

What are you thankful for?

Sometimes I look at her and I do, I just lose my breath”

This made my heart melt. Hopefully each and everyone of us are lucky enough to have someone in our lives who feels this way about us.
Happy Wednesday.
