November has been quite a month! Since taking part in the capturing our blessings project, I've officially broken my monthly posting record. It's been challenging to remember to take a picture each day, but totally worth it. Capturing a photo a day has made me notice many things that aren't typically on my daily radar: colors, weather, lighting, angles--and in this way, I have enjoyed the creativity behind the project. At the same time, I've noticed that my eye is drawn to food, nature, facial expressions, places around my home, and the blur of movement. In this way, I have learned more about what beauty is to me.
Over the 30 days, I attached words or phrases to each photo. When I look back on these words now--each daily blessing--I can't help but feel overwhelmed. I am blessed. And for that, I'm very very thankful.
I am thankful to be...
sharing a sunday
I am thankful for...
my home team
snow, sweats, slippers
christmas music + dancing
Now I say bring on the holidays, more snow, classic songs, warm (or ugly) sweaters, traditions, the scent of fresh pine, and a chance to celebrate God's gift to us. For this season, I am truly thankful.

I don't want a lot for Christmas /There's just one thing I need/
I don't care about the presents/Underneath the Christmas tree/
I just want you for my own/More than you could ever know/Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is...

via text message yesterday afternoon:
Steve: Might get a new phone. What about an iPhone?
Rachel: Xmas present?
Steve: Yeah, just don't know if I need an iPhone.
1 hour later, after forwarding him an email:
Rachel: Hey, did you get this email?
Steve: No, but cool! [Sent from my iPhone]
