Thankful Thursday


Well it’s officially spring and with that comes rain and thunderstorms! I am so excited that all the black nasty crud on the grass and side of the road will be washed away. Pretty soon the grass will be green and the trees will be budding, I can’t wait! I am so excited for this weekend because we have nothing planned. No travel plans, no appointments, no commitments, nothing!! This will be the first weekend in almost a month where we will all be home together. I’m hoping the weather plays along so that we can take our first walk to Scooters (best custard ever!!!) with Harper. Here’s hoping the weather man is right.

Here is my list…

1. I am so thankful for a loving mentor who is a constant encouragement and a great example of how a godly woman/wife/mother should be. I got to spend some time with her this past weekend and I left feeling uplifted and with a game plan.

2. We made our trip back from the Mitten this weekend without any major traffic, if you live in Chicago you know this is nothing short of a miracle.

3. Windowsill gardens. I am in the process of planning mine right now, so far I have seeds for chives and lettuce.

4. My hubby who went out of his way to get me a latte yesterday after we ran out of coffee. He knows I need my coffee in the morning to get going. :)

5. My new “window seat.” If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw the picture I posted of my new window seat/my bed. I’m loving this new space to spend my morning in.

How has your week been? Feel free to share in the comments.

Thankful Thursday

I can’t believe we are already more than halfway through February. Is it just me, or is this month flying by? I’m not complaining, it means spring is getting closer and closer. Today we are supposed to get rain and thunderstorms, so I am going to take my cue from the weather to slow down. I plan to do some reading, writing, and maybe some light cleaning or organizing. Here are the things I’m thankful for this week.

1. Rain and its ability to make me slow down and be a little more introspective.

2. Text conversations with an old friend about jobs, being a mommy, and everything in between.

3. A healthy and bubbly 6 months old, whom I love more and more each day.

That’s it for now. I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!


Today I am Thankful
