The Simple Things

Happy Thursday! Phew... perfect timing for the link-up, The Simple Things. This week has been completely CRAZY busy, overwhelming, & just plain "BLAH". Ever had one of those? I try & make this blog happy & uplifting, but I AM human & I do have bad days, or in this case a bad week. But I know the Lord won't ever give me anything I can't handle.


So, today I am especially thankful for the little things:

... knowing our beach trip is SO close. Next Monday, y'all...
...one sweet flower my lover picked for me because of said horrible week...
...cake balls...
...friends that say the perfect things when you're feeling down...
...Mexican food with Lauren...
...slumbering with my amazing friends...
...JAMMIN' to good 'ol Deana Carter with Lauren (best moment of my week, seriously)...
I promise if you listen to this song, it'll make you smile :)


...e-mails from my sweet Chrysalis fam (have I mentioned how much I love those girls??)...
...my morning coffee + time with the Lord...
...smiles from a stranger...
...simple goals...
...crossing off things on my to-do list...
...a funny picture text...
...texts from my lover that read "How are my girls?" Talking about my pups & I :)...
...finding something on Pinterest that makes me happy...
...seeing CHRISTMAS decor at Hobby Lobby...
...chocolate & wine...
...fall clothes...
...knowing that the Lord will get me through whatever I'm going through. Good or bad...

I am blessed.
Love y'all.
