Thursday Thankful List

I have felt extremely tired and worn out this week and I’m not quite sure why. By the time 8:30 pm hits, I’m ready to crawl into bed with a book, cup of tea and cozy covers. While it’s easy to complain about feeling so blah, I decided to instead write down {and share!} a few things that made this week good and wonderful. Gratitude does really make the everyday situations and not-so-exciting weeks in life become enough. Today – and right now – is simply enough.

What are you thankful for?

Playing tourist in my own city
Chugging an entire bottle of water
Calling one sister on the phone and somehow speaking to the entire family during the phone call
Advice: taking control of your own life
When people say “thank you”
When people say “thank you” and are genuine about it
Spending Sunday with these three queens

Girls who run the world {great Forbes article!}
That I’ll be in Paris in a few days!!!!!!
Life moving ahead. Always a good thing.
Showing love to other people
Dinner with a big group of fun, silly and wonderful friends
Back-to-back episodes of Sex and the City on Saturday evenings
Buying new shades of lipstick

Jukebox the Ghost and Wolf Gang on repeat
Buying concert tickets!
Making holiday plans…I can’t wait!
People who make other people happier simply by being there
New ideas
Cozy socks
Going to be at like…9 pm {every night this week}
Some of my absolute favorite advice: “Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.”

Wearing lots of layers – makes me crave fall weather!
Glutton free granola
Sarah and Su’s amazing Paris to-do list emails
The bright {artificial, sadly} peonies in our living room
Watching the Olympics on repeat {still….thank you DVR}
Reading a book about mercy and grace
Excitement! And anticipation!
The opportunity to grow {always}
