I’m thankful that my husband and I were able to go out to a local park (where I’ll be taking photos soon) and spend some time together checking out the trees that change colors. There aren’t many trees here (none naturally in the desert), and even fewer that change color, so it was fun to go to a place in town where there are tall trees that have some fall color!

What are you thankful for today?

  8. Today I’m thankful for our amazing community. I’m a volunteer for the tourism and leisure committee and we put on community events throughout the year.

  11. I’m thankful that today is payday…and I’m going to be able to get groceries tomorrow. I’m also thankful for sales at regular stores and bent and dent type stores.

    Brandy, your photo is lovely. Please tell me where you got your eyeglass frames. I have been looking for some like those and am having trouble finding any. Well, the only ones I found so far are purple. I prefer a more neutral color!
    Thanks in advance : )

    1. I have had this pair for about 6 years (I had updated lenses put in the same frames). They are discontinued and I was just looking at new frames today.

  14. Thanks Brandy. I really just want a similar frame to the ones I’ve had for several years. It’s frustratingly difficult to find small, classic (non-trendy!) frames.
