But it’s so commercial, so American, so expensive, so stressful, so lame, so overdone you might say? People, it’s just for one day. Grinches don’t like Christmas, Cinderella might not like Mother’s Day but you know what?

Here’s my wisdom for you wrapped up in a big red bow:  If we continue to concentrate on the things that other people do to annoy, irritate or aggravate us, and if we highlight and chew over it long enough, it magnifies a problem and leads to more Continue reading

Thanksgiving.

19 Nov

I give thanks for having a beloved who never fails to surprise and delight me in the way he shows his love. Last birthday he gave me this cute “100 ways why I love you” card. It is just the kind of heart warming gift every Princess loves to treasure.

What one thing do you give thanks for in your relationship?
