I am always grateful for the chance to look back and find the good.  I began this meme many years ago now after a really hard month, where I needed to find some good.  Join me the last Tuesday of every month for 10 Things to Smile About This Month.

  1. All awesome things to smile about! Being a mom is the best - thanks for the opportunity to reflect on my blessings this month. :)

    And what's wrong with those trees? They look funny.

  4. Beautiful sunrise! Great costumes for the kiddos. Can't wait to see the fun photo shoot with Alex. Love love love the before and after of the dresser. You're motivating me to do something with my old dresser that has paint peeling off it.
