KALEIDOSCOPE PROJECT: WEEK TWO.

Oh, these little things. The little bits of crazy that define the day before Thanksgiving. The kitchen is a little chaotic, full of life and delicious smells wafting from the oven and dishes on the coutertop. Family is on its way, coming to gather for this holiday, and spend a few days together. The house has gone from a state of slight chaos to some resemblance of clean and neat, though I'm not confident that the shiny floors and my straightened room will last all that long. The thing is, that is perfectly okay with me.

But I'm thankful, thankful for the craziness and chaos because it means that I have a family, have things to make a mess with, and have a full life. The very fact that there is this sort of craziness calls for some thankfulness. It is, in essence, the purpose of my kaleidoscope project. It is about being thankful for the littlest of things, the overlooked, the unnoticed. It seems especially fitting for this week. 

pretty chaos // i like our kitchen.
the table // soon to be filled 
And, to finish off this week's kaleidoscope project, just a few of the entirely too many things that I'm thankful for:




What are you thankful for today? Happy Thanksgiving to you, friends. xo.
