Some things change; others remain the same. Our weekly linky just got a bit of a facelift (many thanks to Lindsay for designing the image—isn’t it pretty?!} but the theme remains the same. Each Friday, I use this space to express my gratitude for things that happened that week, and I’d love to invite you to share your list, too. Also if you’re looking for some blog support in a friendly place online (can you believe those exist?!) please consider joining us at The Peaceful Posse. We’d love to have you! Don’t forget to follow Lindsay and Chrissy and happy Friday, my sweet ones!
Let’s kick it off, eh? Here’s my gratitude list:
Phone call with my brother to wish him a happy birthday. He’s in Miami now so I don’t get to see or speak with him very often. I didn’t realize until we spoke how much I really miss him
Finding out that Buster is going to be okay. He gave us a bit of a scare this week, when his other poppa sent us this pic. I can’t handle the thought of our Baba in pain, since he is just the sweetest, most docile and loving dog ever. But he’s back to begging for food, going for long walks, and doing cute Buster-y things
Getting my butt back to the gym. Not the best workout in the world, but it’s a start
A sweet conversation with a man at Panera. He held the door for me and when he said, “Chivalry isn’t dead,” I beamed with all my heart. Actually, I had a lot of really nice encounters this week. Yay for smiling at strangers!
Buddha bowls and a chance encounter with Buddha himself on my walk last night
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. These b*tches make me wonder how anyone can have toxic friendships in their lives, but it makes for great TV anyway (don’t judge me)
My Philosophy sweater. I picked it up a few weeks ago on sale for $20 at Macy’s Backstage and it is the snuggliest sweater I’ve ever owned. It’s my favorite go-to sweater
Getting to see my parents this weekend
What are you grateful for this Friday?
