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’…
- I am thankful for my family. They are wonderfully supportive and encourage me to pursue all that life has to offer.
- 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.
- 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?

“She’s beautiful. She’s amazing. She takes my breath away,
Sometimes I look at her and I do, I just lose my breath”-Jesse James.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.xx
