I’m not sure why, but I’m noticing the trees and flowers in an entirely new way this spring. Are they much more magnificent than ever, or are my senses just heightened? On my walks, I can’t help but marvel at the vibrant colors, the sweet scents, and the harmonious chirping of little critters, just as eager to say hello to the warmth and sunshine as I am.
I might not be marveling too much today, as we’ll be getting rain throughout the day, but still, I appreciate the gifts from Mother Nature.
Which brings us to this week’s gratitude linky which I have the privilege of participating in with my lovely blog sisters (and Peaceful Posse warriors) Lindsay and Chrissy. Please don’t forget to show them both some love (as well as all the links down below!).
There is much on my list this week that feeds my soul. Let’s get started!
Upping my smoothie game and paying attention to ALL of the foods I put in my body. Even if sometimes those foods are cheese puffs from Trader Joe’s. I’m staying mindful, ha. Repeat after me: EVERYTHING IN MODERATION
Getting to see Bryan’s family (and sister, in town from Texas) for his niece’s communion this weekend
An out-of-the-blue email from an old friend. It touched my heart, but I’m not sure how to respond just yet. Proceeding with caution, I suppose
Seeing an old friend and her family–her son enjoyed Buster cuddles and I got two boxes of Girl Scout thin mints cookies (win-win)
Pouring myself the tallest cup of Riesling yesterday and drunk cooking
Charming Charlie, my new favorite store (purple purse, favorite leggings, two headbands, and this dress for $43—YES PLEASE!)
Fighting with Bryan. It might seem like an odd thing to add to a grateful list, but it was an emotional week for us both and one that strengthened our relationship in many ways (also it was good to make up—I hate when we fight)
Seeing my old coworker and meeting her very handsome contractor. Us in the car right after: “OMG HE’S SO HOT!!”
Feeling somewhat accomplished after a very busy week
What’s on your gratitude list, my sweet ones? Wishing you all the best for a beautiful weekend ahead! XOXO
