today i am grateful for...

1. having a day off in the middle of the week
2. living close enough to my mom that we can easily spend the day together
3. having a mom who is creative and shared that gene with me
4. being healthy and being able to work out at an awesome gym
5. my job and the security it provides us
6. my husband & the hard work he does everyday in order to get his new company up & running
7. summer time sunshine
8. the sweet syrupy goodness of dr. pepper

Love this idea! I have been struggling with the fact that I don't feel connected to my everyday. I just go through the motions and get through my day without taking in all the good things that surround me! Thanks Ali, you are always inspiring me to BE more!
