Thankfulness Lately

Lately I’ve been thankful for…


Simple snacks.


Dreaming of a home with chickens.


Impromptu scavenger hunts.


Gluten-free cones at Frost.

Socks that give me confidence to race.

Catching up with an old friend by running 3 miles through the mud.

Making new friends by holding hands and getting bruised together.


Nourishing colors straight from our garden.


Backyard casting practice.


New-to-me treasures from the consignment shop (and a little hand trying to steal my new sequins).


Finding out your “online” friend is as great in real life as you thought she would be.

A February that has already paid for one month of sponsorship for Chereka and Reymart…and a huge head start for next month.


Changing of the guard.


What are you thankful for lately?

    When you go on another mud run…I’m coming! Looks like way too much fun! Also, I love reading your posts about Africa and seeing those pictures. You are making such a difference with your etsy shop. I love it!

    I did not realize Frost has gluten free cones. I’m so excited! I haven’t had an ice cream cone in a very long time. Yum!

    Thanks for inviting me to do the mudrun with you! It was a blast!

    What consignment shop do you go to? I’d love to shop more frequently at consignment and thrift shops, but I think I’m going to have to wait until my babies grow up just a bit. It’s hard to leisurely “browse” through the racks with a 6-year-old, 3-year-old, and 10-month-old. šŸ˜‰
