thankful for...



...all of the above, and so much more. ♥

I used a free template found here, and took the high resolution version to a local print shop to have it made for our family as a Thanksgiving gift. It prints as a 12x12 image and I thought it was a fun look back at our year. I planned to take a picture of the finished product to show you, but I chickened out and I'm scared to take it out of the plastic! :-)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, friends! XOXO

So beautiful! Your collection of photos are just perfect and totally inspire me! I am learning how to use my camera out of auto right now and it gets frustrating sometimes but seeing these remind me why I want to learn the art of photography! Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

This is so neat =) Sorry that I haven't been around to comment, alot of changes have taken place in our family and for the better thankfully =) I will be deleting this blog www.peacefulislandmother.com however since time is too demanding as far as homeschooling, etc. I will be creating a homeschooling blog however and will be looking to you for a possible button and would love to pay you this time for it. I had to scratch so many projects to devote to other things but I definitely will need my homeschooling blog. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Talk to you soon:
