the pretty Faiza over at It's Gonna Be A Lovely Day never fails to make me smile. She is simply one of those genuine souls. She guest posted for our friend Meghan over at The Perfect Compilation Tape and challenged us to practice gratitude by making a list of 5 things that we are thankful for today.

1.) being an auntie and my auntie.

2.) unconditional love that includes puppy kisses & cuddles from my maverick.

3.) my excitement for this : my favorite book in the series.

4.) all the lovely letters/emails i got from across the world when i needed kindness the most. (i can not thank you enough xo)

5.) the best for last... my best, my darling.

What are you thankful for today? Practice Gratitude and link up on her post here.

(speaking of my #1, i'm taking my nieces walking and then playing with sidewalk chalk)

I can't wait to be a part of this. It will be my post tomorrow!

Faiza said...

LOVE THIS POST! Hearing about other people's gratitude makes me so happy!

Thank you so much for playing along. Sometimes I feel as what I do is a little isolating and I am so happy and validated to see others making lists.

Eclipse was my fave in the series as well!

Not to be cheesey, but I'm grateful for Postcrossing's assigning you to me! Thank you for the beautiful card. : )

Keep up the smiles, and tomorrow's the day for ... Eclipse! Woot!

Erin said...

Sort of like a 3BT, but even better! I'll make a list tomorrow.

So glad that all is well again. Thank goodness for that!

Brown Girl said...

I heart Maverick, he's such a sweetie pie!! I just want to hug and kiss him!!

Marisa said...

i am grateful for you bestie!!

Without gratitude, we will not yet come to understand ourselves. Have gratitude and we will find the real person in us. It feels great whenever we feel grateful, thankful over anything ... big or small, significant or insignificant ... it doesn't matter.

I just stumbled onto your blog and just wanted to say 'Hi!'

Ria said...

I loved pavement chalks as a child! I feel the sudden urge to hunt for some and get creative in Cameri ;)

Gracie said...

Oh wow oh wow! Such a wonderful thing to do. I have to practice this daily. I know it will make me feel so much better. x

Belen said...

I know this has nothing to do with the post itself, but your quote about your mission for you blog on the right column: LOVE. It's probably why I've found some amazing friends like you through the blog world, because I'm sharing more than I ever have to most people in person. ♥

Meghan said...

I love your list, lady! Your niece is a DOLL and so are you! And I couldn't agree more - Miss Faiza is truly a genuine soul. Love you two!

Cassie said...

Micaela said...

Faiza, such a great idea love! and just so very you.

Shelly, they are the loves of my life. yes, to texas (though you already got my email so you know) can't wait to catch up with you!

Carrie, that is THE SWEETEST thing ever. It really made my day! isn't it amazing how we were able to connect just because fate paired my address up with you in PostCrossing? i love it! and i'm glad you liked my card. Can't wait to hear from you.

Erin, it's so great that you do 3BT's all the time. We should always remember the little (and big) things that make life beautiful. i love that you make it a constant thing to do. I ALWAYS love reading your lists! we must skype soon.

Brown Girl, you can dogsit-- maverick would love your babies! :) and she's a girl though the bandana Max put on her makes her look like a boy ha and she has a boy name.

M, you know my life would be incomplete without you! love you Bestie.

Meghan, i've missed you while i've been away (and you've been away too- so happy for your trip!) Faiza is everything you said. Love you two!

Ria, YES! :)

Claire, it's so funny to see how even my 3 year old niece is like the women in my family... stubborn! ha

Belen, thanks seestur! i know it's been forever-- WE need to catch up. i did quit my job. ha it wasn't worth my misery (even though i miss the discount!!!) the thing on my side bar is a quote from the book series, "letters to my younger self."

Wenny, nice to meet you! i couldn't have said it better than you did. xo
