{Gratitude} Lately

Saturday, August 17, 2013


Lately I've been thankful for hand-me-down flannels and new {old} bici's that stay in the family.

For Harvest House breakfasts and extra butter on my banana bread.


For time on the front porch and peace offerings in the form of trout books.


For meals at new places and company that inspires me.


For a chance to get away at the Gorge and for a break in the rain to fish.


For bourbon and beards.


For new waders and Wednesday nights at the creek.


For trips that transform us and they bravery of my beloved.


And for homegrown maters and BLT's for dinner.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
What have you been grateful for lately?
Happy Saturday, brave ones.

Lately I've been grateful for parents who support me no matter what, days spent in Austria {insert happy place right here}, new opportunities and homemade ice cream sandwiches enjoyed in my families backyard.
Thank you for always reminding me to be thankful for the little things in life! Happy Saturday :)

Hi! I read your blog often and am so inspired. I'm grateful for 2nd chances. Your words inspire me to think more simply. Not care about who cares and just take time out to enjoy. All too often I'm rushed. I have a garden this year too and sometimes I forget the quiet feeling of tending to it amidst the hectic of the day to day. Thank you for continuing to remind me. I hope I can have that sort of tranquility in my marriage soon too. :)

For long talks with you on the porch. For long walks with the extended family in the park. For a long wait and a great meal with Tim (with a side car of Twinners.)
For an abiding and growing love in my life. For all this, I am grateful.

Today I'm grateful for...
>a craigslist bike that carried me through 55 miles of sublime northern michigan scenery
>half slices of macinaw island fudge and new friends to share it with
>moving into a new home shared with six of my closest gals
>open windows on cool summer evenings
>finding the perfect birthday gift just in the nick of time

I've been curious for some time now about your pronunciation of the word "bici." I'm all for abbreviations, but this one has me stumped!
