Thankful Thursday

My sweet bestie Addie and I are kicking off our Thursday with lots of thankfulness! 
If you are anything like me you know how hectic life can be. Sometimes I lose sight of the many blessings, big and small, that fill my life with so much joy everyday. 

I love Thankful Thursday because it forces me to reflect on the many positives throughout the week and allows me to truly be thankful for the beauty amongst life's craziness. 

Here are just a few of the things that I am thankful for this week:

1. My Hunter Wellies

Truth is, I hate the cold. Absolutely cannot stand the cold.
This is so true. 

Friday, I woke up at 6am for class, saw that the temperature felt like zero degrees outside, and went back to bed. I don't embrace negative temperatures. Instead, I choose to embrace a warm bed and a happy heart. 

This is so me right now. I am snappier than ever. This homegirl is craving some major Vitamin D. Preferably tomorrow. ;) 

But the bottom line is, despite my hatred towards the cold, I truly am thankful for the boots that have helped me stomp through inches of snow this winter. 

Oh Hunter Wellies,
You my friends are my saving grace this winter and you have kept my little phalenges nice and toasty during this frigid weather and for that I am forever grateful. 

I love me some black Hunters.

2. Kleenex, but for realz.

This basically sums up my life.

By the time I walk across campus and make it into class, my eyes and nose are going hammer time and it's absurd. Thankfully, my little handy travel Kleenex packs save the day.

You may think I am exaggerating and there is a good chance I am, but these little guys are bosses. They have definitely come through in the clutch for me this week and I am mighty thankful.

3. Ecclesiastes 4:12

This is my favorite Bible verse for many reasons, but my favorite being that my engagement  ring has three bands that are intertwined symbolizing the bond between me, David and God. 
I am so thankful for a man who leads me spiritually and will eventually lead our family spiritually as well. I am thankful to be able to share prayer requests with David throughout our days and I love love love receiving encouraging Bible verses from him. 

4. Starbucks

Here is living proof that I am as "basic" as they come...

Not one...

Not two...

Not three..

Not four...

Not five...

Not six...

Not seven...

Not eight...

Not nine...

Not ten...

Not eleven...


Twelve pictures of me with/holding Starbucks. It's a huge part of my life and I am thankful.

Where would I truly be without my Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Caramel Macchiatos? 

.....probably sleep deprived. 

What are you thankful for this week?
 I am so excited to hear about all of the blessings, big and small in your life!
