snapshots + being thankful everyday

cozy, warm blanket  //  new essie polish from my sister
building a star wars model with my brother  //  cutest R2D2 ever (hehe!)
new years eve spinach & feta puffs  //  working on a puzzle (still not finished)
a new calendar for 2013  //  a healthy snack
a new work out video  //  my new leaf & turquoise necklace, from my mom
always so thankful for my doggie  //  neighborhood horses on a beautiful winter walk
encouraging scripture in my new devotional  //  colorful sweater & scarf

I have always loved the idea of doing a photo-a-day project. I have tried once before & failed...
But, now that I have Instagram I thought it would be much easier! I wanted to pick a theme for my photos,
 so that they would all go together, yet I wanted something that would allow me to have lots of options for
 different photos from day-to-day life! So... I decided that my theme would be "thankfulness"!!
I think it is so important to be able to find things to be thankful for, every day!!
Honestly, God has blessed me more than I deserve & most days it's not to hard to be thankful... 
Yet that doesn't mean that I always I express my gratitude to Him like I should.
So... doing a project like this will help me to stay focused on the positive in my life, daily! 
And most of all, it will help remind me to give thanks to GOD every day, because every good gift is from Him! 
(James 1:17)

Some of these snapshots are a part of my "Thankful 365" series! 
As the year goes on I will talk more about this project.

I hope you have something to be thankful for today!


  1. These are great, Sarah!
    And, that is a great theme for a photo-a-day project.

    Seeing the part about building with legos with your brother made me smile. My brother really enjoys legos too. I'm always amazed with how creative he can be with them.

    Happy Tuesday to you!

  2. So cute! Great idea!

  3. What a great idea for a 365 project! Hope you keep it up!
