"feeling or expressing gratitude; appreciative." 

Being thankful isn't just for Thanksgiving. Gratitude isn't only relevant in November. Let's be appreciative all the time. I'm truly amazed at how rapidly a 24 hour period can go. You wake up, eat breakfast and ponder about the rest of the day. Then you work for a few hours, drive to the grocery store or to the post office. You run a couple errands. Your family from out of town arrived and you have to entertain them. Then it's bedtime. Now you do it all again. How can we utilize and take in each and every second?

What I'm thankful for this week:

seeing your best friend ♥ breakfast in bed ♥ spending a few hours with your favorite person ♥ getting 8+ hours of sleep when the cool air conditioner blasts on a horribly hot day free food ♥ pumpkin spice lattes ♥ counting down the days until it's fall ♥ finding inspiration ♥ a beautiful view & a cold drink with a friend ♥ compliments ♥ landing a job interview ♥ looking back at old photos ♥ opening yourself up to someone & it's reciprocated ♥ 1,200 Twitter followers!!

How about y'all? What're you thankful for?
