thankful thursday

There are so many things that make me unhappy and so many things that make me question God's plan for my life... But the one thing that should never waver is my ability to be thankful. Here's a list of what I'm currently thankful for:

  • my husband
  • my daughter
  • my faith
  • freedom to vote
  • the changing leaves, the leaves on the ground, the overcast skies... FALL
  • a beautiful home
  • cheap Starbucks iced coffee
  • Nora's naps :)
  • running hot water (read: steaming hot showers ;)
  • food in my kitchen
  • Nora sleeping through the night
  • my parents and in-laws and their hearts to help us, constantly
  • my KitchenAid mixer 
  • DJ's job (four years, yay!)
  • my church
  • a healthy and happy baby bear
  • our car; though we share, the fact that we have a reliable car we can share is a huge blessing
  • the natural light that floods our home
  • Amazon prime (can I get an amen mamas?!)
  • the beautiful community that surrounds me on Instagram
  • my sweet local friends
  • new friends
  • living in midtown and the ability to walk pretty much anywhere
  • the fact that we haven't had to buy any diapers or wipes yet (almost four months in and still have a stack!)
  • forgiveness
  • grace upon grace upon graaaaace
  • tacos
  • November <3
  • how easily Nora took to a bottle. We didn't have to switch brands or anything. Thankful for the option of bottles. 
  • donated breast milk while my body is still getting used to pumping again
  • Nourish and all the sweet mamas I've been blessed to meet
  • baby wearing + our stroller

This list could go on and on and on. I think it's so good (and healing and humbling) to sit down and think of all things good and lovely, even in the midst of hard seasons. Hoping to make Thankful Thursday a regular thing. Join me!
