a grateful heart

 this week my heart is grateful for: 
- a bowl of spicy chili on a fall evening
- the show, parenthood {we are now almost half way through the sixth season and i love it so much!}
- the book, bringing up bebe {amazing! more on this soon}
- relief from the excruciating back pain i was experiencing- yay! 
- hugs
- kashi cereal 
- second chances and forgiveness
- one of my main goals at the moment is to take care of myself more {and baby boy!} thanks to my family, husband, and good friends' advice... so a pre-natal massage and pre-natal yoga are both on the agenda this week. 
- bob dylan and van morrison 
- coffee shops at night
- mr. monaco had the day off and did all of the laundry {which was difficult to do when i was immobile with my back and it piled up!} so sweet. 
- strolls through ikea {it's not for everyone but it's for me!!}
- my mind is constantly creating new ideas {and although this can be exhausting} i wouldn't change my creative spirit for anything. 
- the simple fact that my only real purpose is to be. right here, and in the moment. someday my name will fade, but for now, i am awake and alive. i am thankful for that. 
  -a sunday morning scene-
it was a very productive weekend
 but planning out my week over a pumpkin iced coffee and a strawberry donut
a walk through uptown charlotte yesterday- on a mission for fried pickles and football
 when i arrived at the bar, my team- the cincinnati bengals- were losing 24-7 and ended up winning in overtime. super exciting and glad i stopped errands to enjoy some food/games. so fun!!
...what is your heart grateful for this week...

  1. I miss Parenthood. I might have to start from the beginning again. I have been making chili too. I have a feeling it'll be made weekly for awhile now.

  2. What a great post! I too have SO much to be thankful for this week.

  3. Absolutely love those pink flowers against the blue. You have inspired me to snap some flowers like that. Thanks!


please leave some love!
thank you so much...
