This morning I overheard Adam giggling in his sleep and my heart simply melted. I felt so grateful and thankful for everything I had at that very moment. If you follow me on instagram @zahra_sandberg you know I occasionally share my moments of frustration with the world, I know that life has its ups and downs – no one is immune to that-  I think the key to happiness is to always remember the things that you are grateful for.  I know Thanksgiving has come and gone, but here’s a list of unlikely things to be thankful for that I created a while back, I think it is always a good reminder…hope you enjoy!

Child-bearing hips… you won’t fall over when pregnant

Earning a low-income…pay less taxes, and also more money = more problems

Not being famous/popular on twitter…being normal and living life without the scrutiny of the masses…i.e. gain weight and no one cares

Having no kids…”me time” is invaluable and you can travel without anxiety

Having lots of kids…(some might not think this is unlikely but people who have a lot of kids can relate) one day having a lot of people who literally owe you their existence 

Having no friends…more time for your spouse/kids/mother who brought you in to existence 

About the look: The holiday season is the perfect time to break out everything shiny and sparkly. I found this Ann Taylor sweater at Woodfield Mall on Black Friday and fell in love. It will be worn for many a holiday party…
