30 Days of Thankful

So, I think it's a good idea to take the month of November to reflect on things you are thankful for. I always take a few minutes on Thanksgiving to make sure the important people in my life know how thankful I am for them, but why not take the time everyday to think about the things in your life for which you are thankful. In fact, it should be an everyday all year round thing...but let's not get ahead of ourselves. As you know, I like the short term goals. 30 days of thankful. Considering the fact that today is November 2nd, you get two today. Yesterday, I was thankful for Home Goods. The whole chain actually; Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Home Goods. These are probably my favorite stores ever. I can spend hours in them. Sometimes not even buying a thing, and sometimes literally going for therapy. Just to walk around and look at stuff and amaze myself at all the deals! Yesterday I went to Home Goods AND Marshalls. It was a good day. And I was thankful for them.

Today, I have a few things (who says it has to be only one thing per day?) This morning, I woke up to the snuggliest, softest, cutest little Tiger Face. He is usually more snuggly in the morning, but today he was extra snuggly. He laid down right next to my face and put his nose right on my nose. Then he gave me some little Tiger kisses. (I think he heard me talking about wanting a puppy, so he is getting in touch with his puppy side...he kinda thinks he's a dog anyway.) It was cute and I woke up thinking, "I am so thankful to have this little guy in my life."

I think a common theme throughout this month will be my husband...I am thankful for him for a million reasons. Tonight at dinner, the song he was supposed to dance with Ellen to at our wedding came on. I lost it. Cried into my pasta. Just looking at him across the table made me swell with thankfulness that he is not only in my life, but that I get to be his wife:)

So there's day one and two. Look for a blog or fb post everyday for thankfulness:)
