Gratitude {Part Deux}

[source]


Today I am grateful for...

:: A husband who picks up dinner so I don't have to cook the first day back from vacation.

:: Coffee...lots and LOTS of COFFEE!

:: Books that take me to a far away land and bring me lots of joy.

:: The ability to think on my feet after my boss decides to leave the country the day I get back in the office.

:: My body. I basically wreck it every month and it still keeps me strong and healthy. #hellosoccerbruises
Right shin and left quad, OUCH!

:: Coconut oil as lotion. It keeps my skin soft and helps me smell tropical all year!

:: Fun music that helps me get through tiresome and frustrating work days.

:: Beautiful blog friendships. I have met some incredible women because of this blog and I'm so thankful for each and everyone of you who reads and connects with me here. Thank you for being fabulous people.

:: Menchies on cheat days.
Check out the frosted animal cookies ;)!

:: Our military and their families. Our country owes each of them a great debt. #thankyou

:: My waterproof jacket when the rain decides to poooouuuurr all week.

:: Space heaters.

:: Newborn baby snuggles and smells. #nothingbetterintheworld

Linking up with Shelly and Holly & here, here, here, here, here & here.

  12. Yes to coffee (as I am sitting here debating on whether I should have another cup, haha!) I need to buy some coconut oil..there are sooo many uses for it and I feel like I am missing out. I had one roommate once who used it to whiten her teeth! Love these gratitude posts...I am thankful for your positivity and for always making me feel happier after reading your blog!
