Thankful Thursdays: Week 33 – Sunsets and Streaks


For a few hours with an old friend.

Letting Shelley put color in my virgin hair.

Not freaking out about the bright streaks in my hair.

Spending a few hours with another good friend, and the fact that she scouted out super cool gluten-free spots for us to visit.

A pirate welcoming me home from LA.

Mom-in-Law taking the helm while I was gone, and leaving me with clean laundry and a sweet note.

Silly afternoons with Leila.

Incredible baseball sunsets every night.

Being the safe place from the storm.

Watching Leila watching herself lip synch to “I’ll Fly Away”.

86 degrees and cloudy, a break from the heat.

Healthy snacks at the ball game.

My little goofball.

What are you thankful for this week?
