{Gratitude} Lately

Monday, July 02, 2012

Thankful for this bowl full of bingers that tasted like Summer.

For these friends who constantly remind me to take risks and travel light.

For concerts at the Fillmore to look forward to this Fall.

For this shirt and how good it looks on him.

For Twinner who has finally learned how to post photos on Instagram.

For this truck that inspires me to scour Craigslist.

For night paddles at the lake and the peace they bring.

For new adventures and a pack I don't deserve.

For Legal Ground's granola {still the best I've ever tasted}.

For scars that tell a story.

For homemade goat's milk soap that reminds me of home.

And for dill that made this potato salad taste freaking ridiculous. In the midst of all these amazing things I've cried twice in the last week and have asked for Tim's forgiveness at least a half a dozen times. Life can be hard. Relationships can be hard. But there are always things that make our days full and good.

Happy freaking Monday, Homies. What was the best part of your weekend? Any plans for the 4th of July??

I took part in a car treasure hunt - we came second because the team in second collected an item that gave them -50 not +50 so we sneaked into second place!

Me and my Mumma walked a 5k race thing for Cancer Research UK. Each year we try to go faster than the year before but because there was rain coming my Mum's knees were playing up. I ran the last 200-300ms and came in at about 1hour 2minutes. I want to be able to run or at least joke the next one but my worries make me believe I can't do it and that I suck at it.

Grateful for you Em. Even though I don't know you and you don't know me...I thank God for you and Tim.

Have a great week!

WOW! So grateful for you Em. All of these things make me smile so much. I still can't believe I get to be in your life--I've never been happier. You inspire & encourage me more & more everyday. I am thankful for your beautiful heart. You are amazing.
PS-come to AK already, I have to catch a fish with you.

If you can get your mitson some, I highly recommend some GrandyOats granola. Made in a great old barn on the Maine/NH border. (I'd love to send you some, but have recently transplanted myself to Belgium!)
