Thankful // Little Things

Friday, October 26, 2012

 I've kept myself so busy with an incredibly long to-do list and list of goals to accomplish while Cam's gone that it feels like I haven't sat down yet since he left! But it's actually been a really great week, full of so many "little" blessings, like this amazing sunset from last night, girls night and a sporadic dance party, being hired for a couple photo sessions, getting to talk to my love on the phone each night...
 Today's sunshine, turquoise East China Sea, and 80 degrees 
Driving Cam's car. And laughing hysterically at all the shocked faces from the gate guards when I go on base, marines, and basically everyone, when they see 5'4 me jump out in a girly dress.
Buying mikkan {Okinawan tangerines} on the side of the road
 Being emailed a photo of my handsome husband !
A pretty, new journal and writing snail mail.
 Nightstand flowers.

I hope you all had a wonderful week. Happy weekend!


  1. Love your Friday posts, there is indeed so much to be thankful for. That sunset is amazing.
    I hope your weekend is really special, despite not having your beloved to share it with. I am working 12hr days both days so no time to do special things with Clive :(
