31 Thoughts of the Day

  1. I found my passion in life...paper crafting! :)
  2. I have a great family who loves me dearly.
  3. I traveled to my dream destination and made it a reality.
  4. I am working on my new career goal and lifetime happiness.
  5. I have a husband who is my best friend and who loves me unconditionally.
  6. I have met some great friends via the Internet - who would've thought?!
  7. I meet new people everyday, just through a computer screen and I love that!
  8. I love that my telephone at work says 10 -May-10 - never thought about all those 10's this year!
  9. I love that I have found a few hobbies when at one point in my life I had none.
  10. I love the path that life leads you on and traveling on it along the way.
  11. I am grateful for the life God has given me and believe that He will never lead me in the wrong direction or give me something I cannot handle with His help.
  12. I am okay with not having a card or project to post today! :)
  13. I am grateful for the Internet - did I say that already?! I really love the Internet!
  14. I am grateful for Thai food immersion into the States.
  15. I can't wait to see what my future holds, but I'll take my time along the way.
  16. I think Apple makes the greatest gadgets and I'm happy to have lived during the time of the iPhone, iPad, and their new spin on computer technology.
  17. I love that I like simple music and the radio doesn't bother me, even if they play the same song over and over.
  18. I really like the Black Eyed Peas and think they are currently the best musical group now!
  19. I am grateful that my sister chose the college she did, found a Realtor and purchased a condo, so I could go to a summer camp and meet my now husband!
  20. Even though my dog, Ozzy, likes Mac better, I still love him! :)
  21. I love working with Mac in photography and I dream that one day we can do that every day!
  22. I enjoy having those "if we win the lottery" conversations with Mac when the Powerball or Mega Millions gets really big.
  23. I really like finding great deals, but also do not mind on an 'investment' on any nice piece every now and then.
  24. I love Post-it notes and use them every day.
  25. I really need to get motivated and get in that gym...wake up in the morning!
  26. Speaking of mornings, I hate them and much rather go to bed when most are waking up.
  27. I never imagined blogging as something I'd like to do, but it's been my favorite thing for the past two years.
  28. I really want to change my blog and I'm glad I'm working on that!
  29. I love shopping for clothes, accessories, and of course paper crafts.
  30. I'm super grateful for the design teams and vendors who have supported my passion.
  31. I cannot believe I shed a few tears while writing this from my heart today! :)

Happy Birthday Dear Ashley!!! I read your list before going to work today and loved it. But my head is in too big a cloud of drywall dust and paint fumes to have put 2 & 2 together!

Really? You are only 31? That's awesome. I'd love to get 9 years back. Not that I'd do anything different but it would be fun to do my 30's over again. Enjoy yours and make the very most of it. WAIT! You already are!!!!

Alice Wertz said...
