Bloggers like to post about the fall so I am pretty sure they will also be all about gratitude and thankfulness once November hits. Since I like to be ahead of the trends, I am going to have a gratitude post in September. Also, every Wednesday when I see Steph's Insta-Gratitude link-up, I get mad at myself for forgetting to participate. I think you're supposed to have IG pics to go with all, but I failed at that part.

Currently grateful for:

HH #1 with Rachelle doing her trademark face | HH #2, which was also the work event | Sweet kitty | That's who I am going to see in concert... you may recognize him from this post.

:: Sweet words of encouragement about my dear kitty. I will definitely keep you guys posted, whether you like it or not!

:: Moments of feeling really good at my job. I get paid to make sure things run smoothly and people have a nice time and when it all works, it's worth it.

:: My $4 grocery store pink roses that still look awesome and the fact that I don't have to give a second thought to throwing a $4 unnecessary item into my cart.

:: A super exciting week next week. A concert, a conference, and meeting new people!

:: I am starting to *gasp* not hate working out. I didn't say I like it, but I don't detest it.

:: Two nights of happy hours in a row (NOT the norm for me, at all!)

:: I am just having such a nice week, y'all. Work is busy and I didn't see my husband at all Monday and traffic is horrendous but I just feel like things in life are so much better because I have so many great people. Total cheesefest, I know! Emails, texts, tweets, plan-making, and most all of it with blog friends turned IRL friends. Even on days I don't think I have anything to say, I want to come to this daunting, blank page and put something out there just to "check in." To make the effort. Because on days I don't blog, I feel like I'm missing my friends. Anyone else, or have I just lost it?

I hope you're having a great week so far and that you have lots to be grateful for today!

  9. You are such a trendsetter!! Way ahead of the times, friend. I am skipping a fall post because it's not fall here, and won't be until it's time for a gratitude post. Haha.
