Conscious of our treasures

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts our conscious of our treasures.”
-Thorton Wilder

Love this quote and feel that it’s so appropriate given the wonderful Thanksgiving I’ve just had.  I feel such a deep sense of gratitude for not only the many treasures in my life, but the awareness to truly bask in them.

Wishing you all a lovely rest of your holiday weekend 🙂

Feeling more blah than blissful?
