Morning Reflections. over Coffee.

"Life was about spending time together, about having the time to walk together holding hands, talking quietly as the sun goes down. It wasn't glamorous, but it was, in many ways, the best that life has to offer. Wasn't that how the old saying went? Who, on their deathbed, ever said they wished they had worked harder? Or spent less time enjoying a quiet afternoon? Or spent less time with their family?"
( True Believer by Nicholas Sparks )

This morning, as I wake up to 9 degrees and snow falling... on a sleepy Monday morning, I am thankful for my past weekend.  Thankful that we got to spend time with dear friends, got to relax, to wake up to a snow covered landscape, to sit and drink coffee in the warmth and comfort of our cozy home. I'm thankful for a husband who, yesterday, enjoyed laying on the couch, cuddling, watching movies and napping as much as I did! Thankful for friends who are as crazy as us, after relaxing all day as well, headed out to late night bowling with us... which even though I feel pretty darn sleepy this morning, it was so fun! Thanks Cartons ;)

Basically, I'm just thankful for life and thankful for those in my life who share my view of walking slow and enjoying the roses.  Thankful for an amazing husband to spend this oh so glamorous life with, walking together, holding hands, and talking quietly as the sun goes down...or comes up.

Have a great week everyone! Happy Monday! ♥
