10 Things I'm Thankful For

Recently, my husband had to have surgery for a severed tendon in his wrist. Thank God it went well but I’m not going to lie, it’s been a little rough on both of us. He’s so limited in what he can do and he really needs to take it easy so it can heal. I’m just so thankful that he’s okay and it wasn’t worse.

Life can throw you unexpected curve balls but it’s up to us if we swing or give up. I’m trying my best to stay positive and what better way than to post another 10 Things I’m Grateful For?!?!?

1. I’m SO grateful for the wonderful doctors that operated on my husband.

2. That his surgery went well and his recovery is optimistic.

3. That our insurance covers all of the appointments/physical therapy, amen!

4. For our families, their support and help during this trying time.

5. That my job/boss is understanding that we all have lives outside of work.

6. For my extended YouTube/blog/FB friends praying for us and their kind words that bring a smile to my face.

7. That the weather has been so nice lately!

8. VACATION! We went to Myrtle Beach for 5 days and it’s just what the doctor ordered, no pun intended!
9. My house. My home. Nothing better than coming home.

10. Coffee. Sometimes it’s the only thing getting me through the day…and I’m off to go make some!

What have you been grateful for? I know during trials it
can be difficult to stay positive but I challenge you to come
up with 5 things you’re grateful for and see if you don’t feel
at least a little lighter, a little brighter during the day!

And if you just need a little more help putting a smile on your
face check out some of the blogs on Stone Cottage Adventures!

Planner Junkie 101

And so it's begun....guys really? Another addiction?! 

I've always loved scrapbooking but haven't had much time since getting married. Between working full time, being a wife and dog mom my crafting hobbies have pretty much fallen by the waste side. 

Sad story. 

But recently I have found some amazing YouTube channels and FaceBook pages dedicated to planners/lists and organizing. This girl right here looooves her planners and lists. 

I mean, my lists have lists! I'm serious!

So here are just a few pretties and projects you may have seen on Instagram if you follow me!

Finding a planner I love has been easy, finding one that works for me has been nearly impossible. I buy planners and forget about them after a week. 

I recently start bullet journaling. If you want a post/video about how to bullet journal comment down below!

I'm using this journal gifted to me by my sister in law and really like it. I love mixing my planner organization with a form of scrapbooking with the decorations. A perfect mix for me!

Do you do donething similar? Let me know so I can further my addiction! And if you want more craft, recipe, diy inspiration check out 

Thank you all for spending some time with me and supporting my new obsession!
