    @optimistgardener I am accepting all the warm hugs you’re sending! 🤗 Many thanks. Love your list, especially #s 1, 4, and 5. I can relate— those things are all so good!

    @paytonpedro Your list sounds pretty dreamy. Pure comfort! I absolutely love your gratitude spin on your house.☺️
  • I started typing this on Tuesday but apparently didn't finish it. Sorry for the late post but I feel like I still want/need to put this out into the universe.

    I love @keikilove for always starting the 10 things tuesday thread, and for emanating love and gratitude through your words. From what I know about your Mom, I see that so clearly in you and it's beautiful <3 
    @optimistgardener ohh #10, this time of year makes me so sad as my garden winds down. I planted my cold-tolerant veggies a few weeks ago but I'm going to miss my tomatoes. 

    1) MH, who inexplicably still loves and supports me through my most miserable moments
    2) Our home, and my garden, the place I've spent almost all my time these last 19 months
    3) Modern medicine, specifically ART. Without it, we wouldn't have a chance of growing our family
    4) Decaf anything, which allows me to still enjoy coffee and tea without sending me into a spiral 
    5) My job. I don't think I say this one nearly enough but I truly love what I do (even if I hate the commute)
    6) Amazon. I know it's evil but I can't help it. 
    7) Blue skies and sunshine... this is such a beautiful time of year in Ontario, so many colours. 
    8) My rice cooker. I'm Japanese, rice is a staple in most of our meals. 
    9) My late grandparents. I didn't realize it at the time, but they were visionaries and have done so much for our family and our community. 
    10) My new Cricut. Any other crafters out there? This is such a game changer.
