A new tradition to start with your loved ones any time of year but especially this time. The gratitude tree is something anyone on any budget can do and a special way to show thanks this season.
I think a lot of people who aren’t part of this virtual world think that bloggers all live in these perfectly put together homes, and our food is always perfectly cooked. Our closets and pantries are meticulously color coded…
and we seem to have it all together all the time…
But the secret to that is it’s all smoke and mirrors. Behind these beautiful images are real people with real life happening behind the scenes that isn’t always picture perfect in any shape, way or form.

This is the word I’m choosing to focus this year, because for a while I’ve been out of balance in my life, and this year just really proved it to me by knocking me out onto my ass. (pardon my French, but there’s no other way to put that.) 😉
I shared with you the other day how to flock a tree, and you may have noticed the banner hanging on it.
I decided to start a new tradition with this little gratitude tree.
It’s a great place to hang gratitude affirmations from everyone who comes over and writes one.
Because even through the ups and especially the downs of life, we always have something to be thankful for if you choose to look at it that way.
It’s safe to say we all agree on that one. 😉
And even though tis the season for reflecting and giving thanks, this is definitely a tradition I plan to continue all year.
Because even though I’m hanging these on the tree now, I can and plan to just write them and keep them tucked away somewhere like a box or jar.
And honestly, every day we have something to be thankful for. It doesn’t always have to be serious…
Here’s an idea…
Let’s start our own little tradition now.
Leave me a comment and tell me something you’re thankful for.
Talk to you soon friends, take care!
