The Gratitude Post

I'm writing a weekly post to express gratitude for everything I have been blessed with in my life. Will you join me in sharing just five things you are grateful for this week?

This week I'm grateful for:

Dinner with friends: (Yes, I can be grateful for this before and after it happened.) I definitely enjoyed my dinner with my real life friends and am so thankful that I got to spend time with them again. Once again, you can read my friend's blog about her journey to England that starts on Monday here and you can read another friend's blog here if you're a bookworm :)

The Bread Machine: My mom gave me her bread machine and I'm so happy! I was thinking to myself yesterday, "Self, we need more bread." And then....I remembered she had given me a machine! Ta-da! Therefore, I made bread. For the first time! I can't wait to use it all winter.

Home Grown Veggies: Even though I have very few things growing right now, I have been able to give Heidi, Piper and myself each a green bean! That's 3 less green beans we have to buy!

My brain: I'm glad that it works. (Most of the time.) That's it.

Traveling: I have a lot of traveling coming up and I'm so excited for it all! I'll be seeing a lot of family and meeting a lot of online friends! I'm so grateful for each of those opportunities and I know the next couple of months will be full of happiness. (Are you throwing up yet? ;) )


  1. MMM...Bread machine...mmmm... Between that and home-grown veggies, you're all set! And I love the comment about your brain. :)

  2. How was the bread? I only made it once and it was so dense. Blah. I didn't use a machine though.

  3. Yes, yes to homemade bread.
    You'll never go back to the stuff that's full of additives and you'll become addicted to the smell in your house! YYUUMMMMYY!

  4. I already have so many plans for that machine! Just wishing and wishing and wishing for another freezer... :)

  5. Stephani the bread was good. Tasted..like...bread? Hehe. I really watched it though. Kept pushing the flour down and stuff while it was kneading.

  6. Oh oh oh! I make bread too! :-) I don't have a bread machine though unfortunately....wish I did.

    Here's the recipe I follow if you're ever in the mood to make another type:


  7. I'm grateful for when my brain is working too :) I really like this idea. I will join you this week!

  8. Awesome, Alicia! I can't wait :)
