August 1

Gratitudes: 1. The sunset this morning, the wind blowing the warm air. Taking a moment to breathe it all in.

2. My children. They challenge and delight me and leave me a better person for it all at the end of the day.

3. A day spent on the water, paddle boarding, seeing beavers and osprey.

4. My bed and now nice it feels to sleep if we could only get a little more!

5. The smell of the hollyhocks while I sit on the porch. Big towering flowers with a soft scent.
