I taught a lesson in church a couple weeks ago about prayer. As I was preparing it the realization came that I'm quick to ask for help or peace whenever needed, but it's not often that I just pour out my heart in thanksgiving for all my blessings. So I'm making an extra effort this week to think about and express gratitude for the many, many things I have to be thankful for.
(Just to name a few: my incredible family, inspiring and thoughtful friends, the tiny miracle growing inside of me, a creative mind, and a world filled with beauty.)

update: The talented Melissa Esplin is teaching some last-minute calligraphy classes this weekend in Phoenix. Her lettering is beautiful and I've got this print she made me to prove it. Calligraphy has always been something I've wanted to learn, so I'm really excited to be going. If you want to join us at a special Saturday class, just put SATURDAY in the notes to seller.
