{Gratitude Lately}

Monday, October 19, 2015


Lately I've been thankful for homemade apple pie's left on our porch from thoughtful Airbnb guests.


For rainy days on the river with my bestie and for the peanut M&M's in our waders.


For the first fire in our wood burning stove.


For friend's who inspire more than the fall catalogues they're in.


And for homemade spinach pie eaten in two days.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Monday, brave ones.
What have you been thankful for lately?

Today I am thankful for the way my little boy got so excited to see frost on the ground this morning before school. He inspires me to find joy in small things.

bubby hold you brave

I've been thankful for the opportunity to study in the UK for two semesters (living in a new culture is always a mind blowing and very humbling experience...love it!), for new friends who take me to the best coffee shops in town and take the time to encourage me and pray with me, and I have to second your Twinner, I am very thankful for FaceTime sessions with my niece (she is just a tiny bit older than Brave ;-) ),and with my family and friends back home.

Also I'm thankful for you and for continuing to write this blog. I'm sure you have a lot less time to do it now then you did a couple years ago but you are such an inspiration and I'm glad I still find new posts here every time I check in. Years ago your blog introduced me to the "Dirty Chai" of which I had never heard before. I always wanted to try it but never did. Today I saw it on the menu at my neighborhood coffee shop and had to try it...now I wish I had tried it years ago. SO GOOD!!! :-)

casey, i love that! frost ... something that should never lose it's wonder.

brave would eat my iphone if it meant she could have "bubby hold you."

kristina, you finally tried a dirty chai! that made my day!!! and you are right in that my time to blog is so much less than it used to (kids will do that!) but i'm so grateful that it continues to be a place for me to celebrate the good (and hard) things in life. I'm also grateful for longtime faithful readers like you who feel more like friends :) happy monday, sweet girl.
