Gratitude: Things Big and Small

[Installment 7 of the Declare & Celebrate Gratitude Project] This past week I was grateful for...

…Trader Joe’s cinnamon raisin toast + Whole Foods honey roasted peanut butter. It’s a marriage made in heaven.

…learning that my friend’s tumor appears to have been obliterated by chemotherapy. Hellz yeah!

…one of those instances where I was completely willing to pay for something but someone insisted I have it gratis.

…Facebook. As much as I have moments where I think it’s the evil empire, it’s been such a wonderful way to connect with old friends. I’ve exchanged some amazingly lovely emails with people this week.

…fine cheese. And lots of it.

…the new friendships Laurel is forging.

…meeting new people with whom I feel an instant connection.

…Jon welcoming me to use his loft space (read: not so cave-like man cave) for yoga. It’s so sunny and beautiful up there.

…my MAC spice lip pencil. It really is the perfect shade.

...how much I learn from my Life.Style guests (it was a truly inspiring show this week).

…my neighborhood branch post office. They actually called me back and located a package that I had sent and went missing.

…convenience stores that will give you four quarters for a dollar.

…our minimalist approach to Christmas this year and how happy it is making me.

What were you grateful for this week?
