a grateful heart

"notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. they're the ones who deserve a special place in your heart."
like i mentioned yesterday, this past month has been a blessing for me 
it's true- you can choose who you surround yourself with 
life is so short and way too precious 
to surround yourself with hurtful people. 
i have prayed a lot about this 
and honestly, i love my choices
{i hope you feel the same} 
i am thankful for good health and meaningful relationships
and as a result,
have vowed to stop worrying and stressing out
over little things; things that don't really matter in life
and instead, i am remembering just how blessed i truly am
-throughout small moments of each day- 
it's been quite amazing. ♥
 here are a few snapshots from around willow 
i can't wait to share more details with you soon! 
my heart is grateful for:
- reese's peanut butter eggs- i could eat these by the trunk load. {it's bad!}
- more iced coconut coffees
- a family march madness bracket- it's been fun and hilarious
{i say this a lot but i love our group text messages that we send throughout the week}
- the closeness of my family
- baby's breath in tiny jars
- nachos for dinner
- the smell of fresh linen- and coffee
- strolls through ikea
- my health
{when i am having a bad moment- i always think of this!}
- sweet and supportive blogging friends
- my 30's - love.
{don't get me wrong, i loved my 20's- i had an absolute blast!!- but loving this decade even more}
- chats on the phone with forever friends
- my sister confirming a trip to charlotte over memorial day with her husband
{can't wait! i wish we lived closer.}

    1. so good! dunkin donuts has a great one!! hope your day is going well!

  2. I am grateful for Hershey pie (I may or may not have eaten a third of one by myself yesterday), a baby who is learning to love to dance--even to my whistling--and my health, as well. Victor caught some kind of bug over the weekend and was so sick yesterday (very similar to what I had last month). He slept most of the day and barely ate anything. He's on the mend now, but when I asked him how he was feeling this morning he said, "Awful. You never realize how much you take your health for granted until you're sick!" So true! Hope your week is off to a great start!

    1. awe- love all of this! all great picks. love baby max - he's the cutest! picturing him dancing is amazing and so glad you are loving your new house- LOVE the photos!! keep them coming! and yes- health is the greatest blessing. ♥

  3. I absolutely love the closeness of my family too--one of my biggest blessings!

    1. awe- I am so glad!! it's the best blessing in the world. ♥

  4. I'm so sorry it's over a week later and I'm just now reading this. (I don't dare miss any of the grateful heart posts! Sometimes it just takes me awhile) ;) I am with you on this new decade.. although I have to keep reminding myself I'm 31 now and not still 30... is this the decade you start to forget how old you are?!
