Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, March 18, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Making a delicious Chocolate Zucchini cake in my crock pot...

My son's very cool softie - made all by himself in his technology class at school...

Piggy plugs...

More model shots of our family's fashion queen...

Link love: Amazing stories like this that emerge out of such sorrow in Japan and Cindy Ruakere's free download of our NZ National Anthem (she's the lady who wrote and sings our NZ Masterchef theme music!).

Finding hubby having a nap in a pillow cave...

Notes like this...
