Gratitude Lately

Happy hump day, my friends!

You've made it through half of the week - congrats! - and now we're on the downhill slope. To get myself through, I figured a little gratitude was in order

Dear Wanna Be Greenthumb,
I so desparately want to learn how the heck to successfully grow plants of all shapes and sizes. It's not only shocking that my little plants are not only alive, they are starting to sprout and grow. 27 years of practice has me finally mastering the basics (kind of)!

Dear Dean and Deluca,
Darn you and your beautifully decorated treats. Crashing healthy diets everywhere. But let me tell you, that pink champagne mini cake was totally worth every glorious sugary calorie!

Dear Haskins House,
You are in full bloom and I couldn't be more in love. I especially love forgetting about all the hidden blooms that the previous owners planted and that always surprise us when they pop up each spring.

Dear Kansas City,
I love the neverending new adventures and faint in love with every hidden treasure you hold. So thankful for antique stores practically giving away chippy church windows for d├ęcor, and for refreshing rosemary cocktails in mason jars that make me want to do a little jig.

Dear Adam Trembley,
I'm so thankful for your quick forgiveness and the way you remind me that grace means it's a new day.Today you sent me a random message just reading "I love you" just out of the blue and my heart melted a little bit. Excited for future adventures and new goals. #teamevans


Goodness, life is great. My hottie husband gets home from another week-long business trip here in the next few days, and we have a great weekend of adventuring ahead.

What are you grateful for today?
