30 Days of Gratitude: 15-22

Well, Week 1 and Week 2 are complete! And, now at Week 3, I feel sad that this challenge is coming close to the end.
DAY 15: FAMILY. I love my family. Last Thanksgiving, we were celebrating an upcoming expansion of my cousin getting remarried. It was a great time and we are so happy to have so many wonderful additional great people a part of our family.
DAY 16: INSPIRATION. Some days, when it gets super chilly, all I can think about is planning a vacation to some place tropical. Changing my background on my work computer tends to at least let me escape for a moment to that tropical spot on the beach, somewhere far away from my daily work.
DAY 17: WEATHER. I cannot complain for the most part on the weather. Mother Nature has turned Virginia into her canvas and has painted so many beautiful picturesque landscapes to be desired.
DAY 18: CHANGE. I always seem to never have change with me. It often goes here for a rainy day weekend fund so we can take a random trip. If I am doing laundry and I find change, it goes here. If we have change leftover from a purchase, even if it is just a few pennies and nickles, it goes here. Last time it was used, we had $40 saved up for a day trip to the Natural Bridge. That was a great investment.
DAY 19: LAUGHTER. I celebrated my birthday this weekend with so many wonderful people. I am truly blessed to have so many great friends. I was happy to spend it with all of them. Sadly, you cannot get everyone to fit in a picture, much less a photo booth!
DAY 20: FOOD. What an amazing birthday cake! My Tiramisu slice was pure heaven. Have you seen anything more delicious? It was so strong of a cake, that everyone did partake on a bite of it. I kind of want some more.
DAY 21: HOME. Home is where your heart belongs. This is my home - well, where I live. Home is wherever your heart is - it is not a building or what lies within it. It is where you are happiest with the people you care most about.
DAY 22: COLOR. If anyone know me well enough, they know I love owls. These cutie pies were gifted to me on my birthday. I am so excited to put these wall decals up when we move! They will make the perfect item for my office. If you want one of your own, just hit up Pier1!
