{3} three Things Thursday: What are you grateful for?

Happy Thursday.
smootches and all that jazz.

{3} things I am grateful for today

1} The apple tree.  My little bean planted herself an apple tree.  I suppose she planted a seed one day after her snack when I wasn't watching.  She watered it.  She nurtured it.  She loved it.  She screamed with glee when it sprouted.  My little bean is FOUR.  If she can make an apple tree grow, well then think of what you can do.  I am grateful for that little sprout every day. 

2} A weekend away to ponder.  To come back ready to conquer the world.  To come back and soak up my little family's quirks and lovliness.

3} Popcorn.  It is cheap. It's crunchy. It is salty. The kids LOVE it. It is a good excuse to eat a half a stick of butter all in one sitting. 

What are you grateful for today??


  1. Strangely, I'm grateful for popcorn today too! But I took a page out of Tara's book and sprinkled it with M&Ms too. Crunchy, salty, butter AND chocolaty. Maybe not every time... but on occasion - yum.
    Funny enough, I also just planted 16 strawberry plants today. I'm grateful for that. Especially if it means I get to eat some strawberries in a few months!

  2. Those are all awesome!! I am thankful today that this 3rd cold I have in a month is not pneumonia, that I get to go to a girls craft night tonight, hooray!, and for friendly girls in my new town who are willing to take a chance on a funny girl like me. :) Have a fantastic weekend and thanks so much for the post!!

  3. Oh I love that she planted it all on her own. I still remember my first sprout from a seed. Love this post.
    I'm greatful for awesome blogs like yours. family and health.


It's fun to get love notes:
