Thankful Thursday

Good morning!  Now that we are over hump day, let's finish this week off nice and easy.

Running with Racheal

Today I am thankful for Greek yogurt, because it can turn any dessert into a semi-acceptable breakfast.

I plopped the rest of the apple crisp on my yogurt yesterday and it was amazing.  Fruit and protein, right?

Today I am thankful for Dan as my husband, baby-daddy, and leader of our family.  We have had some tough conversations the past few weeks concerning his job, disability, and going back to work, but I think we are (thankfully)  heading in a direction we can both live with.  When the word is official, I will let you know.

Today I am thankful for Ina's 4:30 wake-ups.  I get up, nurse her, and then she collapses on my chest from exhaustion.  It is during these times (when I haven't had any coffee yet and my mind is calm) that I really think about how big she is getting.  About how small she still is.  I really feel her weight on my chest, breathe her in, listening to her tiny snores.  Every once in a while she will grab a strand of my hair and play with it as I rock her back to sleep.  

Today I am thankful for social media.  I love how it helps me stay connected with people I don't see in person everyday, but I also love how it enables me to meet new people.  People who I may never have met otherwise.  

Today I am thankful that I can get every pair of pants in my closet on and zipped up - something I haven't been able to do in years.  As most of them are 5+ years old, I would be more thankful if I thought they were cute.  Ha!

What are you thankful for?


  1. These are great! I love that special time with Ina! You'll definitely think back and remember those calm, serene times when she's a teenager haha!

  2. Wow! You have a lot of great things to be grateful for today. I love the reflection. Today I am grateful for:
    ~The 10 years I've had with The Traveling Vineyard and all of the friends I will get to see Friday that are attending my Last Hurrah Wine Tasting.
    ~The great mood I am in today.
    ~And the walk my husband and I have planned for Saturday.

  3. It's a great feeling to be able to wear everything in your closet, even if it's 5 years old :)
