grateful: week 32

inspired by my reading of the happiness project by gretchen rubin, i am instituting monday "gratitude" posts (read here for more detail), where i will list "3 things i'm grateful for" from the previous week.

the 3 things i'm grateful for this week are:

1) we as a family got to sneak in time at home and in northern michigan over the holiday weekend.

2) after owning the piece of property for over a decade, my parents (finally!) broke ground on our soon-to-be new cottage in northern michigan last week. 

3) a most wonderful 5 days with the family for thanksgiving!

{thanksgiving night tradition: watching holiday inn as a family}
 {up north, michigan - dinner at vivio's - sister & fiance}
 {pizza + wine yum!}
 {trip into petoskey - sister & fiance in front of their wedding venue!}
{champagne toast at the house site}

this week's blog love:
  • lana of lanalou style had the prettiest pictures from a gift fair.  lots of handmade christmas inspiration!
  • dustjacket attic's sweet escape post had me wishing for ... a sweet escape!
  • jamie of from me to you had the coolest farm photo shoot this week.  i don't think we're in kansas anymore...
here's to another grateful week.
