much love monday.

alright, lovelies, here's the scoop: as i said last week, i have now been doing grateful mondays for an entire year (my reasoning behind the exercise).  i am still very inspired by the happiness project, by being grateful, and by using monday as a way to reflect on the previous week and to start anew. 

so, where do i go from here?! i retitled my monday posts, as you can see, and i am now breaking them into 3 sections: (1) what i am most grateful for today, (2) picture(s) to recap the previous week, and (3) some link love.  it's where "grateful" posts were evolving to anyway, but now i have declared it openly (v. important, i know)!  without further ado...

today i am grateful for:

ah!  i'm breaking my new rules already (that's ok though, right?!): i am extremely grateful for both a long weekend with my family at our cottage, and for all the thoughtful comments i've been receiving on the blog recently.  i've noticed an uptick not only in the number of comments per post, but in the relationships i've been able to create with some of you.  i thank you to all who comment (and read) what i have to say each day, and i am grateful for it.  much love to you all!

pictures worth a thousand words:
