With Thanksgiving just a few days away I have much to be thankful for.  First off I had yummy food to eat all week including the juicy grapefruit pictured above...sometimes the simple things in life are the best!

On Thursday, I finally found out that someone did in fact choose my artwork at the fundraiser last month.  I was thrilled to hear that someone liked the picture enough to want to hang it in their home or office!

I am thankful that the weather was warm enough last week for me to sit outside with the dogs a bit and capture some bird images...I just never tire of seeing them flit from tree to tree.  The weather has taken a dramatic turn and is now very windy and cold, so I'm grateful for those sun filled warm days we had.

And I was happy that I felt like doing some post processing and playing around with one of the images of a bluebird.  I'm always grateful for the bluebirds, they were one of my mother's favorite birds and always remind me of her.

But more than anything, I am grateful that my husband returned from a trip to Russia safe and sound.  His job is very demanding and he often goes to far flung places with just a few hours notice, so it makes life interesting and sometimes a little stressful.  When he left last weekend we weren't sure he would be home in time for Thanksgiving, but as luck would have it he was able to come home last night, which was earlier than expected, and for that I am so very thankful!

I'm pretty sure that in the photo above taken early last week, Quinn was wishing that Mr. Tide would come home soon...he is thankful to have him home too!

I hope you each have a very Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I do know that it's the little things we can be grateful for, but I will say that your accomplishment at the fundraiser and your husband coming home were huge!

    Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving, your family as well. Give someone else that wishbone...your luck is on the rise without it! :) ('s much more than luck).


  2. Things to be thankful for, for sure. Your photos are gorgeous… Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Beautiful photos, Kat! Glad your artwork sold and your husband made it home for Thanksgiving!

  4. How great your dh arrived home early in time for Thanksgiving, and that someone purchased your art work.

  5. So glad your husband is home for Thanksgiving Kat!! I just knew someone would snap up your eagle image. You make that grapefruit look like a beautiful still life painting...I love it! And your work on the blue bird is full of sweetness (in a very good way)! xo

  6. Happy to hear that he's home safe and sound, and that your image was chosen! Win win.

  7. I am thankful to have you as a friend!

  8. I feel such a beautiful spirit from you Kat and love to read your posts and see your amazing captures. I am grateful for your thankful heart my friend. I am happy for you that your husband is home safe and ahead of schedule. I am thankful that even though our lives are so different (like your husband away on a trip to Russia and mine away on a two day cattle drive) we still have more in common than not and can have a friendship grow between us.
    Wishing you the most wonderful Thanksgiving!
    sending hugs...

  9. Dear friend,
    Thank you for your friendship and support of my blog! I'm grateful we have connected. So happy your husband is home for the holiday. Have a wonderful and warm Thanksgiving! Loi

  10. Kat- beautiful images--- especially the one of Quinn. I'm glad your husband returned safely from his faraway travels,-- it would have been a lonely Thanksgiving without him.
    Congrats on your picture being chosen-- none of us here are surprised. You have incredible talent:)
