I am thankful. And this post is proof.

Let’s just get a few things out of the way lest you judge me as superficial and deep as something that is… not actually deep. I am thankful for:

  • My family
  • My friends
  • My home
  • Our car
  • Our health
  • Chocolate
  • Most baked goods
  • Even my arch nemesis: LAUNDRY. Laundry means we have clothing. Plenty of it. Something I do not take for granted.

But all those things are so OBVI.

How about some creative thankfulness?

My name is Jenny and I am thankful for… in random order… because I think random order is sexy and/or I am making up this list as I go. You decide.

  1. Being born in the 70’s. Riding one’s bike without a helmet? WINS ALL THE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES!
  2. We live in a day where one can find a coffee shop every 10 paces.
  3. Scarves. I love.
  4. Zip-up hoodies.
  5. Sliced bread. Seriously. It’s so handy not to have to slice one’s own bread.
  6. Ready-made pie crust in the freezer section. ::happy dance::
  7. FREEZERS. I think that is one of the best inventions of our time. I love a freezer.
  8. Costco (see #7 and also #6)
  9. Tacos.
  10. Sparkling water.
  11. Compliments.
  12. Sparkly things. Even water.
  13. Pretty fonts.
  14. People who smile back.
  15. People who forget your name too (misery loves company).
  16. Peanut butter-filled pretzels.
  17. Foil. For hair. ::says the not-natural blonde::
  19. Fabric shavers.
  20. Lint rollers.
  21. The fact that I was able to deep fry a Twinkie in my lifetime. ::waves farewell to Hostess::
  22. Colored tights.
  23. Being right all the time. Hush.
  24. ROBOTS.
  25. Pillows.
  26. Fairy gardens (there will be a video on that someday…).
  27. THIS MAC-N-CHEESE RECIPE by Noble Pig. ::be still my heart::
  28. Garlic bread.
  29. Pastries.

I could go on.



But seriously. I have so much to be thankful for… all the silly things and all the big things.

ALL OF THE THINGS come together to create this life.

And I am thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving to those who observe this holiday… and if you don’t then… Happy Day! Now, let’s go be thankful with some turkey and some gravy!
