Golden Hour or Happy Hour?

When things get hectic and overwhelming I like to turn to affirmations and a list of things I'm thankful for. I do not know exactly how this works. I feel like it is a simple concept though. It is so easy to get caught up on the day to day, that we compleatly forget how lucky we really are! I have been struggling with this, the past week. So this week I am trying to slow it down and take all the good in. #GoodVibesOnly, am I right? Here are some of the things I am thankful for right now. 
1. A golden retriever pup who needs to get a puppy cut twice a year or else he looks overly obese, and my family all has the same voice for him and we no shame have conversations back and forth through him. 

2. Amazing Des Moines restaurants and people to go with to munch. (My favorite is magnolia wine kitchen) 

3.An amazing village of people who I have to talk to at any given moment, and keep me busy during a 4 hour wait when I miss my flight. Seriously this was the best thing ever, and kind of made it extremely enjoyable.

4.Coffee. That one explains itself

5. My sister who sends me about 6 dog memes a day. 

6. This blog! I love this thing. It is so fun to constantly have to turn to, or get something out. 

Have a thankful week and keep rocking it out!



  1. Great post, we all need to be thankful for the little blessings in our life

  2. Yep, it's the little things. Also, your dog sounds super adorable. And as for the outfit shots, I really love the floral dress is really cute on you.

  3. It's always nice to stop for a moment to appreciate what it is we have! Especially the little things!
