What a lovely weekend we had here in the Calef house!

and trying out a new church
This weekend I was so thankful for the relationships that I have. I have a loving husband, great friends, and the opportunity to meet new people and create new relationships.
Today I am thankful for the right to vote. I know that a lot of people are telling you that today, and they do because it is important. We live in a democracy where we have the right to elect individuals to public office. How cool is that?! People through around the phrase "it is my right" a lot, and not always are they correct, but voting is a right that we need to exercise. Beyond the fact that it is a right, voting provides me with a high like no other and I always leave wishing the next election would be here tomorrow so I could do it again (minus all of the political campaigns... those can go away).
My goal for the month of November is to write something that I am thankful for everyday. Some days they will make it on to the blog with a story or lesson that I am learning, other days they will be documented in my prayer journal. I want to go through this month remembering that God has blessed me in countless ways. My life is beautiful and there are days when I am trudging through the mundane pieces or the midweek blues and begin to lose sight of that fact. I hope that through intentionally working towards a thankful attitude I will allow God to transform my heart and see my life the way that He sees it.
Here is to a Thankful November!

My heart is full and happy and I could write an entire post about it, but for today I am just going to leave you with some fun pictures from our Halloween party. It was a lovely night of friends, costumes, food, and a toasty fire :)
