Back in December, I was given a set of really cute, purse-sized notebooks as one of my birthday gifts. My family and friends know me well. They know autumn is my favorite season, that I like cute, small things, and that I like to write.
While admiring the pretty, golden leaf design on one of the notebooks, I decided I was going to use it specifically to write about the people, things, and events for which I am grateful in my life. While I’m obviously and tremendously grateful for my wonderful children, having a home, my career, etc., I wanted my notes of gratitude to be about everyday life stuff.
I live by two words: tenacity and gratitude. –Henry Winkler
Now that the year is about half-way over, there’s enough in my little notebook to include here on my blog. Some of my thoughts are much too personal for me to share with the entire world, and so I’m not including every single thing I’ve written since the beginning of this year. You’ll see that I’ve made some of my entries a bit snazzy with stickers and hand-drawn doodles. It’s the teacher in me. 😉
In late December I’ll share some more from the second half of the year, so I hope you’ll check back. I’d love to hear about the things you’re grateful for, so please feel free to leave a comment below. Thanks for stopping by. ❤
