1000 Gifts in November 876-920

I just realized I never posted our apartment picture tour!  I took these awhile ago but might as well throw them up on this thankful post.   The only rooms I didn't include are the master bedroom and bathroom because they are nothing exciting right now.

 I'm so grateful for affordable, clean, safe housing here in California!  There is a park near by we walk to often, a cute neighborhood we do our nightly walk in, and just about every store we could want just a short drive away. 

We are almost done with our 1000 gifts in November.  I saw this quote from Ann Voskamp today and I think it's so beautiful and true...

"The real gift of gratitude is that the THE MORE GRATEFUL YOU BECOME is the more you realize God is present."
