Gratitude Project: Days 21-30

Day 21: Where You Sleep
Just keepin' it real here, folks. We do not make our bed. I know... for being such a neatfreak, one would think that would be important to me. Alas, it is not. Especially not when we wake up early and I'm 9+ months pregnant.
Day 22: Clothing
Attempting the creativity on this one. Insert the Ikea dresser from Ray's bachelor days.
 Day 23: In Your Closet
Pretty basic.
 Day 24: Gratitude
Pretty self explanatory here. Ordered from Three Sisters. Totally overpriced and totally worth every penny. My mom also bought me a necklace for my boys ready for Benjamin's birthstone and name... depending on which month he's born in. We're still assuming February, but sometimes nature has its own ideas. I have no problem owning two necklaces as they are different styles/designs. Can't get enough of my boys anyway. And in case you're wondering, "Benjamin" would not fit so I had to go with Ben. And no, I haven't decided if that will be his nickname as I just assume it probably will be.
Day 25: Artwork
This beautiful piece was created by Ray's cousin Helena a few years back. I believe it was right around the time we married. I've kept it since because I just love it. In California, it hung on our refrigerator but now that we don't have anything on our non-magnetic fridge, I just look at it from time to time.
Day 26: Transportation
Trusty Honda. We <3 you. We don't love the grimy, salty mess that Chicago winters coat you with, however.
Day 27: Daily Routine
Breakfast on-the-go is often Eggo waffles.
Day 28: Nighttime
On our street around 6 p.m.
 Day 29: Lights
I didn't really have a clue on what to choose... but figured I could use a little practice shooting in the dark with minimal to no light... aside from candlelight, of course.
 Day 30: Self Portrait
Obviously that mirror could use a wipe-down. :)

Fin.
