Gratitude Lately

Lately I've been thankful for gooey Farm-to-Table grilled cheese sandwiches and dining al fresco with friends on unseasonably cool summer days.

For the reminder that sometimes the best views are up.

For tiny gold initials worn around my neck to remind me of the one I love countries away.

For tequila + girl chat at a swanky spot. Two things that should always go together.

For treats in cones and the sprinkles that make them twice as merry.

For new adventures in the city that has stolen my heart and the colorful sites along the way.

For home cooked meals on the patio, and for the ability to google 
"how to put out a grease fire in the oven" quickly.

For snuggly Beasts who like to be the little spoon.

(L to R: Erin, Meredith, Kari, Megan, Angela, Mandy )

For new communities that have brought about friends in the most unconventional way.

For furry companions who can type excel spreadsheets like a boss.

For exploring new gems nestled deep in the city, and the breakfast bounty they provide
which makes it all worth it.

For weekly Monday Family Dinners sharing Big Chewy Monster Cookies and stories
that make our bellies ache.

For checking things off the summer bucket list, especially when they are blackberry + lavender flavored.


Here's to gratitude and how it makes life fuller, and the smallest things more than enough.

  //  What are you thankful for today? //
