simply love's gratitude project

things i am grateful for today:

a rainy day- brings out the cute umbrellas
gilmore girls episodes 
a really loving and carefree family
she reads truth's hospitality study 
this crisp fall weather 
my health
lifelong friendships 
blueberry coffee
norah jones' pandora station
road trips
my faith 
wine and sushi nights with friends
volcano candles 
--> bundling up today: 
scarf/coat- h&m 

love my instax mini - available at urban outfitters 
i read once that the key to living a happy and fulfilled life is to reflect and to show gratitude. so i told myself that i would take in moments throughout my day and would document these moments through photos. it really amazed me how i started to notice things that i never would have noticed before. now i try to take at least one photo every day of something that i am grateful for. simple things that are ways to celebrate the good in my life - the everyday celebrations. i feel spiritually and physically stronger because of this task and would love to encourage you all to do the same-- to discover more about the power of gratitude in your life. our blogging community has also helped to inspire me to be more grateful. almost all of the bloggers i follow express gratitude regularly.
this got me thinking 
what if we all come together near the end of each month {on the 29} and share our month through photos- sharing the simple moments where we took a step back and were grateful. i am hoping that this little project/link-up will bring strength, encouragement, and joy to others. i would love to see what inspires you most on a daily basis. i plan to use #simplylovegratitudeproject as a hashtag for the project. please join me- i would love to have you. 

*i plan to feature certain blogs each month-
along with some giveaways for bloggers who join in on the fun*
i also plan to link-up with ember gray weekly 
for what i am currently grateful for.
my link-up on simply love is to reflect on a monthly basis 
using photos and grateful heart notes 
on how i am progressing/my thoughts each month 
Grateful Heart Linkup w/ Ember Grey
you all should join in on this link-up as well! 
lastly, i am inspired by these great wreath ideas
esp. this photo wreath

i hope your weekend is going well!
