Give Thanks.

Anyone else out there saying, "How is it already November?!"

It seems like 2011 has flown by and we all know things only get busier once the holidays hit. I've been inspired by friends on facebook and blogs to write down something every day that I'm thankful for. I really want this month to be a month of gratitude, truly taking the time to stop and give thanks for the big and small blessings in my life.

So, even though I'm starting on the blog a few days late, here are some things I'm thankful for!

day 1: Cody! We are in a fun season of our marriage right now {not that the others are boring}. I can't say enough how thankful I am for him and the many ways he serves me {including staying up late to pick up the house to remove my stress when he had to be up very early to make it to the airport!}
day 2: Slightly silly, but Starbucks Holiday Cups. I think it's impossible to see that red cup and not be happy. They are a fun welcome to the magical season of the holidays! {and given the number of pictures I saw on instagram of Starbucks Holiday cups, I would say many people agree with me!}
day 3: A warm house! We had a small taste of winter today after a cold front that came through and I'm thankful that I had a warm house to wake up in.

To go along with this thankful season, I created a fun printable to have out as a reminder.  I printed out my 8x10 today, plan on sticking it in a cute frame and using a dry erase marker to update what I'm thankful for. There's a link down at the bottom if you want to grab one of your own! I've also included a black and white option in case you don't have a color printer and want to put it on a bright colored piece of paper.
