you know that "30 days of thanks" thing that everyone starts and miserably fails at during the month of november? well, i've come up with a genius way of making it easier. (ok, it's not that genius. just roll with it.) i'm going to do a weekly thankful round up each week this month. yay for planning ahead!
during this week, i've written down one thing each day that i'm thankful for. here we are:
nov 1st: i'm thankful that i have the flexibility to create my own schedule and give myself days off to recoup and reload.
nov 2nd: i'm thankful for date days with my husband and getting caught in a fierce downpour together while we're out shopping. *heart eyes*
nov 3rd: i'm thankful for the little student at my elementary school that told me she has been practicing all weekend, and who earned 2 ribbons in class today. a little silver lining to a long work day.
nov 4th: i'm thankful for free tickets to watch my husband play a musical. and that he's as tough a critic as i am.
nov 5th: i'm thankful for sweet online sales at j.crew and that joe lets me put tons of butter and salt on our movie theater popcorn.
nov 6th: i'm thankful for naps, man! and for having a great job, even if it starts at 7:50am.
nov 7th: i'm thankful for great girlfriends that i can spill my heart out to. also the blacklist. that show is so good.
i love taking a step back and counting my blessings. it makes me realize how small i am and how good i have it.
