It’s something I have to remind myself to do.
Go out on that limb.
Take that leap.
Make that phone call.
Send that email.
Because the only way you can really fail is if you never try.
This next year I will muster up the courage to do more things that scare me.
To venture out of my element.
To take myself completely by surprise.
I am going to dare to be brave.
1. Did you watch the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead? I’m sad about one thing and happy about another.
2. Disney’s Frozen (Or as my oldest likes to call it, Iceberg), go watch it. Even if you don’t have young girls. Even if you don’t have any kids at all. Just go watch it. Fair warning: Let It Go will get stuck in your head.
3. I like the Idina Menzel version more than the Demi Lovato version.
4. Totally want Anna’s magenta cape and Elsa’s blue/silvery dress.
5. Christmas is in THREE WEEKS! I am super close to being finished with shopping for it.
6. Since I have no illustration skills whatsoever, I like to play around with Photoshop.
7. Signed copies of Karen Walrond’s The Beauty of Different are on sale for the entire month of December. She is such an inspiration to me. If you’ve never watched her Ted Talk you should. #lookforthelight
8. Who needs a U.N.I.T. tee? I do!
9. Totally love this Alice in Wonderland ornament.
10. Tessanne FTW.
Have a brilliant week!
Bonjour mes amis!
Since this Thursday is American Thanksgiving* I thought I’d share with you all some things I’m thankful for.
I’m thankful for a roof over my head, food to eat, and clothes on my back.
I’m thankful for a kind, supportive, and loving husband.
I’m thankful for two smart, ridiculously adorable, and helpful daughters.
I’m thankful for this tiny sliver of the internet where I get to (over)share the happenings in my life and my attempts at creativity.
I’m thankful for my readers. All five (or is it six?) of you.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!**
Much love, bacon, and sprinkles,

*You may be asking yourself, why did she refer to it as American Thanksgiving? Why not just call it Thanksgiving? Well, my dears, Canadians also celebrate Thanksgiving but they celebrate it in October. Hence, that’s why I call it American Thanksgiving.
**I’ll see ya’ll back here next week! Be sure to eat (and eat and eat and eat) delicious food and enjoy the company of your families and friends.
