Thankful…(A Little Note)

Thankful for this little munchkin today, that I get to be her mommy and every day be amazed at her growth and personality, be her audience as she sings and dances with such heartfelt/closed-eyes emotion, laugh out loud at the funniest things she says in the most serious way, wonder how she can bring out happiness and warmth in everyone around her, let her be lovable and cuddly and excited even when I may not be. Because you see, there was a time when I wasn’t so sure she would ever come. And when I think back to that time, it makes me even more thankful that she finally did.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your gifts too!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

    Wishing you and your family a happy Thanksgiving!
