Feel Grateful Friday #1


Things are changing over here on The Thirty Something Life. I got to thinking the other day how so often we take for granted all the little things to be thankful for throughout the week. And wouldn't it be nice if, at the culmination of a long, stressful, tedious week when we all just can't wait for it to be the weekend, we instead take a moment to reflect back on the little moments that made the week not so bad. It's all these little pieces of happiness that carry us through until those big moments of happiness (my vacay next week, for example)! Anyhoo, I thought I'd start this little Friday happiness sesh on the blog, feel free to join in because I always want to hear what's going on with you guys!

This week I'm super grateful for:
-husbands who do all the maintenance work on your bike, because you never even think to take the time to, but boy do riding on full tires sure feel a whole lot nicer!
-friends who share dessert with you because half the guilt and double the love.
-moms and dads who always invite you out to dinner and pay for you because no matter how old you are, they still consider you their baby.
-blogger friends who keep coming to this little blog, even when you slack and don't post regularly.
-time to blog again because you made the time and effort to actually do it and it feels great!

All in all it's been a pretty sweet week. Share with me what you've loved about this week in the comments below and let's make this a happy, reflective Friday! Love you guys! XO

  8. What a fantastic idea Kim! You always help me keep things in perspective as I am guilty of sometimes focusing too much on the negatives (especially now that my vacation is over!), but there are so many little things in life to be happy about and thankful for. I love your list. I hope you are enjoying your well deserved vacation this week!
