I know I just posted a love-list last week...but following my promise to Find the Joy, here is a non-exhaustive list of just a few things I am grateful for today [because it is, of course, Valentine's Day!]
For welcoming the warmth of green tea back into my life after a 12 week hiatus. Oh how I missed it.
For the little one growing day-by-day...I might be struggling with a lot, but never once am I not grateful for this tiny presence.
For a Valentine's Evening at work with the girls - it's sure to be a fabulous night of laughter and love, and I just can't wait.
For waking up at 8am and knowing I have hours to simply do as I please before work.
For puppy cuddles on these mornings. I would be simply lost without these two.
For snuggles and good-bye kisses in the dark on the mornings Nathan leaves me to go to work.
For my rapidly growing hair! :) [so ready for long summer locks again]
For my body telling me to make smarter food choices in this second trimester - and for me listening to it [hello smoothies, fruits and veggies!]
For the kindness of my friends and co-workers.
For a great pregnancy conversation with a guest yesterday in the fitting room at work.
For finding a bathing suit that will suffice, and buying two!
...Because we're going on vacation in two and a half weeks!!
See Ellie...there's a lot of joy to be found, if you simply open your eyes and look <3
