An Attitude of Gratitude!

Today, I have the urge to show the love... Even though I feel the love everyday of my life; it's better to get it out than to keep it all in.  When I think of everything I'm grateful for in my life, I easily get tears welling up in my eyes. For a girl raised by basically all boys, tears are not something that come easy for me.  You could give me a solid punch in the face and I would probably not even come close to shedding a single tear, (please don't though). =]  But when it comes to my amazing friends, my fabulous family, my husband, my dog, my life... My salty gratitude drops flow easily, with no fair warning. 

So a huge, giant, enormous MAHALO to all of you in my life that make each day so special!!! :-)

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."
--William Arthur Ward
These gorgeous "wave"earring were given to me... Handmade by my gorgeous, extremely artistic, and multi-talented friend, Genelle.  I got them in the mail... and have worn them most days since.  They are more than earrings though, they are a constant reminder of the friendships I cherish, no matter how far away I may live, or how little my friends and I get to talk. 
Thank you GENELLE! :)

Seriously, Tommy and I could not have been more fortunate than to get stationed in Maui... with the added bonus of getting to meet a great group of friends here.  So grateful for all my favorite people who keep me laughing til' it hurts. :) This was on my b-day when I walked in and got pelted with balloons. =]

Family is a no brainer I guess... but I really have to say, I feel I've got one of the best in the whole wide world. :) I honestly don't even know who took this picture, because most the family is in it.  The bonus to my already great ohana? 90% of us love to cook.  Take the 25 of us that get together at Grandma's on holidays and you've got yourself a drool worthy smorgasboard!  (Not too mention all the comedians!)

And my guys of course!  Without these handsome dudes, most my life would be a major dud. =)

Tommy's birthday is this weekend and he has MANY surprises in store.  I CAN'T WAIT!!!


  1. Aww Danielle this is just the sweetest gesture ever... my tears were starting to well up as I was reading it! I'm a sap when it comes to family and friends just like you, hehe. ;) I could never tell you enough just how grateful I am to have you as a friend in my life, no matter the distance or oceans between us. What perfect symbolism in that picture. Honestly, my own creativity would be extremely limited without the people I love the most as my inspiration. People like you mean more than words can say!
    And as always, keep up the RAD photography!! :)


I would love to hear from YOU! :) Please leave me a message so I know you stopped by... Mahalo!
