Today was the fastest photo shoot ever. We made it about 100 feet from the front door of the flower shop before the hypothermia set in. “I’m just gonna stand right here… Good? Yeah? Okay, let’s do this.” 
It’s going to drop into the 20’s tonight, but we’re experiencing some fierce wind that’s supposed to make it feel like about 11 degrees. My friends, that is cold for this deep-fried southern girl!

As the temperature drops and our thermostat creeps up, my heart is warm and filled with gratitude tonight. While this year has been one of the most challenging for C and me financially, we are immensely blessed.

A few random, stream-of-conciousness things that spring to mind: We have a safe, warm home and the best baby Doodle pup in the southeast (who doubles as a pretty great space heater). We’re not out spending on extras and entertainment like we used to, but our bills are manageable. We have nice and reliable cars with seat heaters to keep our buns toasty in this icy weather. We can turn up the central heat without worrying that we won’t be able to cover the electric at the end of the month, and our kitchen is stocked with [mostly] healthy food — and hot tea and chocolate. We have our health {and on most days, our sanity}. We’ve been given an amazing opportunity to help run a successful business with our family, and we’re loving every minute of it.

At the same time, I just so happen to be doing this 30 for 30 challenge. Talk about perspective! I may not be able to shop with reckless abandon as much as I used to, but in the grand scheme of things, who gives a hoot? I clearly have more than I’ll ever need.

Life is good. Like really, really good. And I’m so thankful.

Apparently, getting cozy makes me all sentimental ;-)

    >It's so easy to get grumpy in the winter when things go wrong (blizzards, traffic, long lines) but I love that you are focusing on the positive! Cute blog!

    >I hope you acclimate to the weather soon! I live in the Northeast so the teens is a pretty normal winter thing. You definitely look very cozy which is the first step :)

    >I. feel. your. pain…I have barely set foot out of the house for the past two days. My thin Florida blood just can't handle it. I am hovering inside practically sewn into my snuggie with a mug of hot cocoa super glued to my hand. Warm wishes!!!

    >Great post! I agree with everything you said/typed – the cold weather and the thankful-ness. I think the 30 for 30 thing is awesome. I'm considering participating next time Kendi organizes something within the blogging world … but I'm just a little nervous about it. Working shipment at the Gap is so tempting. Not being able to shop might be torture!

  • WobiSobi 12/14/2010 at 3:08 am

    >I just love you.

  • The Elegant Bohemian 12/14/2010 at 2:53 am

    >What a great perspective on things! I find that whenever I feel a funk creeping on, if I'll just start thinking of things I'm thankful for, the funk passes right on by. Your outfit is adorable. Love how you've worked your scarf! ~Serene
