Thankful

Looking back over this past weekend I couldn't help but smile and think about how thankful I am for so many blessings in my life. I know, I know.... everyone says that cliche phrase all the time, but I mean it. Even with the craziness that our life has been in the past few weeks, there has been a lot of fun as well. You can never let yourself be too busy for fun, am I right!?

I'm thankful that every one in awhile Ohio decides to give us that perfect cool, crisp night. A night that's perfect for sitting around a fire and hanging out with family ----and a cute puppy-in-law.

I'm thankful for occasions to dress up with my man, and for hair that is FINALLY getting longer again!

I'm thankful for a favorite mug from a friend, a job that sometimes lets me do cool stuff and a job that allows me to take a much-needed vacation next month!

I'm thankful for the family I gained when I married Jared! There is nothing cuter than that scrunched up little face and a cupcake shirt!

I'm thankful my mom is always just a phone call away.

I'm thankful for the house Jared and I live, as much as we might complain about all that's wrong with it ;)

I'm thankful for the closet I have, overflowing with clothes.

I'm thankful for little things like planners, fun pens and post-it notes that make a day at the office just a little more colorful!

Think about all your blessings today! :)

  4. We truly do have so many things to be thankful for! I'm glad you posted this so that maybe some more of us will take time to be thankful, rather than complaining we don't have enough of this or that...Thanks Erin!

  5. How sweet :) I hear ya on the Mom thing. My husband thinks it's weird, but I talk to my mom at least 4 times a day, if not more. It's a girl thing :)

  7. =) My poor Mom, I must call her at least 3 times a day.
    But she doesn't mind it (or at least never admits it does!)
    Love Moms like that.

  12. I'm with you girl...I'm always thinking of how blessed I am! It's so easy to complain about this and that, but at the end of the day, if we threw all of our complaints in a pile with everyone else's...we'd probably pick ours to keep. Things can always be much worse!

    That dog looks just like my roomies dog!!!

  14. I am such a dork who loves fun pens and papers. I love all office supplies-so much so that when I was younger I wanted to be a secretary. Who wants to grow up and be a secretary? Me the dork!

  16. I love this! I think taking a moment and remembering all of the good things in your life, the things that get looked over and the things that mean everything without realizing it are the best. I do a Thankful Thursday post almost every Thursday because I don't think we are truly thankful for all the wonderful things we have daily that we take for granted.

  18. Nothing in this world can brighten my day more than office supplies. Or the pen the makes your handwriting look like a font on Pinterest.

  20. Oh I am sooo jealous of that weather! There is still a good foot and a half of snow here and I'm dreaming of some nicer weather. And there is just something extra special about a favorite mug that makes whatever is in it even better!
