30 Days of Thankfulness : 30


MY HUSBAND! Saved the best for last, I seriously wanted to write about him every day but now I can reflect back on the whole month and how much I love and adore him. We truly are each other’s best friend! Soul Mates! I can’t get over how amazing he is and how lucky and THANKFUL I am to have him in my life and to call him mine!

Day 29:  I’m thankful for the beauty of nature!!

I’m thankful for the beauty of nature!! I wouldn’t say I’m the typical outdoors girl but I appreciate the beauty when I get the chance. We went for a beautiful hike, in the snow with our pup and family.  It was a lot of fun and absolutely beautiful.

Day 28: thankful to share the holiday


ThanksGIVING! My husband and I traveled up north, bright and early this morning to visit some of my family this holiday.   I’m very thankful to share my first holiday up north with my family and with my husband.  Prior to being married, my husband and I did not share the holiday events with one another, we both spent time with our separate families.  This year, we had to change it up and start sharing the fun. This year my husband came with my family up north to Rhinelander, WI. It is great to share our traditions and have him there for all our fun.

Day 25:  I’m thankful for wine.

Today I’m thankful for wine. This probably does not come as a surprise, if you know me.  I love a white sweet wine, like Moscato or Riesling.  And I don’t care if it comes out of a bottle or a box. I love it. Coming home from work and having a nice big glass with dinner is exactly what I need.  A glass of wine really goes with all occasions and always results in a great time.

Day 24: I’m thankful for dog antlers!

I’m thankful for dog antlers! My pup (6 month old mix) goes through rawhide bones too quickly. Teddy devours them too fast or sucks on them until it becomes mushy and chokes.  We have been on the search for a different toy, a different distraction. Stuffed animals get destroyed, balls require throwing, and squeaky toys, which he loves but we can’t stand all the squeaking. Then we tried antlers! AMAZING! They are natural, healthy, odorless and long lasting toys that keep our pup interested and busy.  Antlers are safe for chewing, does not split or chip, contain many beneficial nutrients and nothing artificial, clean (no messy odor or residue) and Teddy LOVES them!

Day 23: I’m thankful for a day of nothing.

I’m thankful for a day of nothing.  It has been a very long time since my husband and I had a day… that the calendar was empty. (I’m talking months!) Even if the calendar seems free, usually something comes up.  But not today. There was no where we had to be or that we had to do. It was wonderful.  It slows life down a bit, gives you time to relax!

Day 22: thankful for Pinterest.

I’m thankful for Pinterest.  Its addicting but I’m okay with saying I’m addicted. I am continuously being inspired by outfits, food, home decor, fashion, beauty, baby, gifts, and so much more. In the morning, I type in what I feel like wearing: a “red sweater” and pinterest shows me tons of ideas on what to wear with my red sweater. Chicken for dinner? Let’s check out Pinterest for recipes! All different recipes that I have never cooked before.  Holiday décor… Pinterest inspired! DIY ideas – that give a girl a hobby!  It is easy and free and I’m thankful for it! Especially that it came out before I got married 🙂

Day 21:  I’m thankful for my career.

I’m thankful for my career. Although it has its ups and downs –  the past 2.5 years have been great. Its work and I work to live, not live to work.  If I didn’t have to wake up at 5:45 and work to make money – I wouldn’t.  But because I need to, I’m thankful for the job I have. Because of my career: I have been given great experiences, I have learned a ton, I have meet amazing people, and I have grown so much as an individual, adult, and employee.  My current job is not my dream job but I know this role in my life will make things in my future obtainable.

NOTE: My dream job would be something related to weddings.
