Weekly Reflections // Week 8

November 24th - 30th.

Favorite Photo.

Top Thankful or Happy Moments.

Seeing as this past week it was Thanksgiving in the US, I thought I'd list what I am thankful for in general instead of just this week. In no particular order...
I am thankful to have a roof over my head, and a beautiful 'roof' too. 
I am thankful to be living in a safe neighbor hood without the harassment and torture we've had for the last couple years.

I am thankful for my amazing other half and how hard he works to keep said roof over our head.
I am thankful for Baker who keeps me company, gives me reason to get up and go outside and makes me smile.
I am thankful to have some of the best parents in the world, to have them still together and to live so close again.
I am thankful for my true friends. New and old, who take the time out of their busy lives to be in my life.
I am thankful for all of my blog followers who interact with me, appreciate my posts and give me their friendship - even if only via social media!

And the little things? Northumberland and all it's beauty, chocolate, my rocking chair, pajamas, Netflix, sweeties, my books, Walt Disney, cake, our Xbox One and so much more.

This weeks word is - Someday.
Something I, along with I imagine quite a few others, say too often in relation to dreams, aspirations and the like, is 'someday'. Instead of seizing the day and living every moment to it's fullest, like we so often preach, I find myself all too often dropping the comment, 'Oh maybe someday...'. The difference between someday and today is life. Money, time, commitments get in the way but when someday eventually comes around (if at all), it's a great day.

  1. Hi Danielle,
    as I discovered your blog just recently but so enjoy reading it and looking at your pictures, I just wanted to wave my hand and say hello from the north of Germany. :-) Your blog makes me really plan a trip to the northern parts of England with my man, driving around by car and enjoying the beautiful scenery there. I'm really a fan of your nature and out and about posts. Furthermore I wanted to say that I wish you all the best for you being a professional photographer, I'm totally sure you could make a living out of that. And you are the first person being able to open my eyes on Disney :-), I absolutely like your passion about it as it is so cute. Thanks for your inspiration and I really wish all the best to you and your family. Have a wonderful Sunday, Love and greetz from Berit

    1. Hi there!!
      I don't even know how to start replying to this because you just made me speechless.
      Thank you so very much for making my day, such lovely things to say- I really appreciate it :)

      Best wishes to you and your family also.

  2. Love that photo of Baker, proper Autumn-like :)

    I did a thankful post on Thursday and I think I'm mostly thankful for a roof over my head too :)

    Most attractive and least attractive traits...quite simply honesty and dishonesty I'd say.

    Great post, need to go check out Baker's gift guide so Stella doesn't copy! X

    1. Thank you!

      Yes, definitely honesty and dishonesty!! I don't think anyone could not agree that.
      Loved Stella's wishlist!


  3. I love reading these posts every week as although they follow the same theme, they are always unique from one another. As always, it is an honour to have been featured in this post, so thank-you SO much.

    Sending you big hugs xo

  4. I'm definitely thankful for you taking the time to mention my little blog!

  5. So much to be thankful for! I'm thankful for meeting people like you & for having my blog post shared. :) You are so sweet.

    1. Lots!
      I've said it once, I'll say it a thousand times - you are SO kind!
