Merry Merry Quite Contrary how does the story go?

so the other day i was watching America’s Next Top Model (yes, i watch this train-wreck of a show…and i’m not afraid to admit it…so maybe i am a little so don’t judge too much, mmmkay?) and one of the judges told a girl to “put some gratitude in your attitude”.

gah, gold nuggets like this is one reason why i watch that show.  the 2nd is to analyze the photos & posing.  the 3rd is Nigel Barker…he’s soooooo dreamy.  but i digress.

gratitude.  being grateful. showing an appreciation for the little things in life.


now, i like to think that i’m a pretty positive person.  i like to think that i have a sunny disposition, even though i do love a little time in my judgement tree (let’s be honest, it’s kind of fun).  and i think about the things i am grateful for all the time.  but do i ever say them?  out loud?  do i put those positive vibes out into the universe??


welp, kiddos.  if i didn’t before, i am definitely planning on doing that now.  do you smell a mini challenge coming on?  cuz i sure do!

for the next 30 days, i’m going to post something that i’m grateful for…the big things, the little things, and everything in-between.


to kick this little challenge off, i’d like to say that i’m thankful for The Blondes (if you’re unfamiliar with the nickname, The Blondes are my mom, my aunt, and my grandmother).

this past week has been a doozy…and i will say one thing, The Blondes are the best at coming together & making. things. better.

my mom has been such a trooper throughout her surgeries, maintaining a positive outlook even through the pain of recovery.  Neena has been the rock, keeping everything in order & moving along.  and you know AJ is going to fix whatever mini-crisis arises, or come in like a whirling dervish with lunch or even a new outdoor grill.  and the whole time they maintain such grace and a sense of humor.

yes, thank goodness for The Blondes.


and because a picture of Mr. Bix makes everything better…
