Thankful Thursday

Posted on

It’s been a good week so far, and I’m feeling like a lucky girl. Life isn’t perfect, obviously, but I’ve got a lot to be grateful for.

I’m thankful for…

…an evening of wine and friendship and tapas on the patio.

…strong coffee the next morning.

…my beyond-generous best friend, who brought me a present when we went out to celebrate her birthday last night. Who does that? PresentsFromJess

…my parents, who always have a bed ready for me to crash in so that I don’t have to drive back to Timbuktu after a late night out with the BFF. They even puppy-sit while I’m out on the town.

…my pups, who are kind enough to take a nap instead of being their boisterous, batshit crazy selves when I’m hungover.

…my brother, for being so completely unable to cook for only two people. When he cooks dinner for his girlfriend, I get several containers full of yummy leftovers.

…horseback rides with my mom on a beautiful fall day. MomSally


…Mr. B, who works so ridiculously hard. No matter how often I tell him, I really don’t think he understands just how much I appreciate all that he does for us. I love that boy.

What or who are you thankful for?


  • I love this idea. What a great way to celebrate the day before Friday!

    Here’s what I’m thankful for:

    1. Clarity and the strange ways it manifests itself.
    2. Courage to say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done.
    3. New blog friends who get me better than most.
    4. Warner. Like always. 🙂

    • This is a great list! So true about clarity.

      I kind of feel like a bad dog-mommy for only appreciating that they were quiet and still that day. Most days – like today – I really do appreciate all of their (sometimes rowdy) wonderfulness 🙂

  • Loving this list!!

    Here’s a few of mine!
    I’m thankful for my best friend of 20 years who is getting married this weekend. And I’m thankful for my fabulous husband who has been so supportive of me during a super crappy week.

    • That’s so cool have fun! And I know exactly how you feel – feeling supported by the man you love makes all the difference!

  • Lots to be thankful for! Now I want to go horseback riding and get tapas!

    • Haha at first I thought it said “horseback riding TO get tapas” and I thought it was the most brilliant idea! How do we make that happen? Lol

  • Cindi

    Who or what am I thankful for you ask? YOU!

  • That cup is adorable!

    • Isn’t it adorable?! On one hand I can’t wait to use it, and on the other hand I’m so afraid to spill all over it. 🙂

  • I’ve had a friend like that before, who would buy you a present on her own birthday. People like that are crazy, but they’re a blessing!!

    • Exactly! I wanted to be like, “what are you doing crazy lady?!” but I was too busy thanking her endlessly for being so thoughtful and sweet 🙂
