fresh flowers the mister gave me,
seeing photos from our friends' wedding {which we were unable to attend},
trying my very first nectarine {oh they're so delicious!}
a 7 day pass to a gym {i miss the gym so much},
allowing some of my talent to shine,
making a positive impact on others,
the end of a very long {but still great} week,
finally hearing music by the mister's band,
finally, a day off {that's today!},
jonathan safran foer,
my morning pages,
dead man's bones,
ice cream!!!,
iced coffee from my local coffee shop.

these are just a few of the things i'm thankful for this week.
how about you?

{oh this picture has nothing to do with 
anything, i just really like it}


  1. Your first tangerine! How adorable!

    I'm reading St. Lucy's Home For Girls, and I LOVE it. I've only read the first three stories, and I feel like they're the best stories I've ever read. Thank you!

  2. cute photo... Coffee from my local coffee shop always does it for me.

  3. Lol I'm grateful for Pop Tarts this week. Kind of lame but delish nonetheless!

  4. Ooo, which of his books are you reading? I've been meaning to read either Everything is Illuminated or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close but can't seem to get my hands on a secondhand copy anywhere and can't bring myself to buy new paperbacks for more than ten dollars if I don't have a gift card...Luckily my birthday is soon. :)
    Anyway, have a lovely weekend!

  5. dead man's bones! i totally forgot about them! love!

    i'm so thankful for my husband who has made me smile every day this week when i've come home from bad days at the office. and i'm thankful for coke bottle gummies....made me so nostalgic this week!

  6. I love that you share (weekly) what you're thankful for. Counting my blessings is something I have lately made a conscious effort to do more of.

    I'm thankful for:
    my love Joshua and his big lips.
    my mother's health
    the freedom of choices
    Angus and Julia Stone

  7. I love nectarines - so crunchy and tasty :-) Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. What a sweet photograph. And yummy--I love nectarines!

    Hope you have a great weekend :)

  9. White or yellow nectarine? The white ones are my favorite fruit. Ever I think. Though figs... Happy weekend, my charming friend!

  10. You tried your first nectarine? Was it hard or soft? If it was hard, let me suggest something for you. Slice them fairly thin then put a thin slice of brie or parm on it and eat. Or, spread a soft cheese like barrata or creme fraiche and drizzle some honey on it.

  11. I am making new art this weekend! :)
    What book of jonathan safran foer do you read?

  12. Hah.. I love how you stuck in that random, but very nice image. I'm grateful for hot, summer days and rivers to swim in!

    Oh, and I saw your tweet a few days back about saying no to adding that extra day of work that was offered, thereby keeping your day off. Good girl! I think I actually let out a little cheer for you when I read that one! :)
