Thursday Thankful List

Happiest of Thursdays to you! This is the 70th Thursday Thankful List post on my blog. That’s crazy and super exciting to me. It’s truly a reminder to me that the more you focus on and count your blessings, the more blessings will overwhelm your life. This quote from Shauna Niequist’s book Cold Tangerines is on my mind today: “When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.” There is always a time to be thankful and there is always something to thankful for.

Here’s a few things I’m thankful for this week. Now it’s your turn: what are you thankful for?

Sleeping through an entire flight
Learning something new
Peony season
Highlighter markers
A perfect pedicure
Laughter so deep I feel it in my stomach
A bowl of peaches and blueberries
Sore muscles
Afternoon pastries {this is from Abraco Cafe in NYC}

Super friendly people
JJ Heller’s music
When the not-quite-day meets the not-quite-night
