Grateful Today!

Recently, I happened upon Great Full Day which is a pretty blog that helps you celebrate life.

It reminded me of when Oprah had her watchers write down the things they were grateful for each day {which I did, I was probably about 13, which meant I was grateful for JayZ, my friends, my boyfriend, and icecream {is it scary that this list has changed very little in 14 years?!}} and I thought I should create such a list, of maybe just ten things, and use it to prepare to get you, my dear readers, up to speed on things going on in the life and time of Wife & Blog!

I, LNRB, am grateful for:

  1. My dear husband.  Who will be graduating a month early.  And is super smart.
  2. My darling friends.  Many of whom I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with recently and some of whom have celebrated wonderful birthdays!
  3. My family.  Without whom I would be very sad and lonely.
  4. My new job for which I am wildly excited and nervous, simultaneously.
  5. Our wedding photos.
  6. My blogging friends.  Two of whom I have never met but feel a particular kinship with.
  7. Running, which makes me feel free, strong and exhausted all at the same time.
  8. Homewood meals.  There’s just something about them, warm and made with love.
  9. Fruit flavored gum.
  10. New clothes!

What are you grateful for?
