I'm eternally thankful for my loving husband and our two beautiful, blue-eyed boys, our home and the family and friends that walk through our door but I'm also thankful that the kids are quietly (and happily) watching Sesame Street as I type this, sipping a still-hot-cup of coffee, looking out at the gorgeous fall trees in my backyard, and there just so happens to be a blue bird pecking its way around in the leaves. I'm thankful for this moment and that I get to share it with you. Finding thankfulness in your life doesn't require some grandiose statement. I believe the key to living a life of thankfulness is being grateful for the smallest details of your life - your running water, tickling baby toes, the changing leaves, kind neighbors, a good night's sleep, if you're like me, a microwave to reheat your coffee, lighting a candle at the end of a long day, a good book, a friend that you don't speak to often but who knows you and says all the right things when you do talk.
I'm also thankful that today I got to share a new recipe and little piece of my heart with the readers of Writing Mother Fashionista. You can check that out here if you're interested - it's a good one I promise. Here's a little sneak peak - yum!
I'm also abundantly thankful to be participating in this awesome gift guide linkup this week.
