It really does make a difference in my outlook when I realize how much splendor surrounds me on a daily basis. There are so many things to be thankful for…all the little things that make me smile.
My mission is based on a book by Ann Voskamp titled One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. I plan to complete this journey by December 3o, 2015. Should you also feel inspired to remind yourself of all the things you have been blessed with (things that make you smile every day), please join me.
And so my 1000 Gifts journey continues...
