TILT Thanksgiving Edition

For my second edition of TILT I'd like to list a few things I'm thankful for:

My Boyfriend * At the risk of sounding cheesy, he's everything i want, need and more.Never before have i been so sure of a relationship, i get giddy with thoughts of the future :)

My Little Family* I'm an only child so it's just me, my parents,my kooky grandma and our crazy cats in our lil house.I love how close we are and how I can talk to my parents (and the cats of course!) about anything.

Little Things* random giggles, pretty pictures, happy thoughts, giving & receiving compliments, silly jokes from the old men @ work, watching my cats zoom from one end of the house to the other & learning something new every day


My family and I are spending this thanksgiving with our neighbors/ good friends. I can't wait for my moms delicious stuffing ( which i have just now been informed I will be preparing).... soo i can't wait for MY stuffing hehe :)

I hope you all have a super happy thanksgiving w/ full bellies and big smiles!

If you haven't seen it, i recommend it. If you have, I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts!!?? We were a lil confused b/c there is quite a bit going on with flashbacks and whatnot, i think reading the book will clear everything right up. Apparently the author is a poet and writes beautifully; this is getting added to my wishlist right about... now! :)

Love Reality


Let Optimism Prevail

"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step."

-Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.

*These words are very encouraging at this particular point in my life. I am constantly thinking about my future and what the right steps are to take along the way. This quote has reminded me to just go with what I feel is right.

I hope it gives YOU some positive encouragement as well! :)

The Secret

A few day's ago while perusing the bookshelves at target I decided to pick up a copy of
"The Secret".


I've wanted to check it out for awhile and I figured with all this cold gloomy weather upon us its a perfect time for a dose of some positive thinking.

Have you read it yet? If so what did ya think?

Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty they merely move it from their faces to their hearts.
