Grateful on a Snowy Monday

happy monday friends!  i'm not sure where you're reading this from, but if you're in new england, new york, or new jersey, stay warm this week!  winter storm juno is headed right towards aj in boston (where they're predicting two feet of snow!) and it looks like we might get a few inches here (on top of the six that we got on saturday).

i'm kicking off the week with a little list of a few things i'm grateful for today...some are big and some are small, but getting into the habit of gratitude is something that has done wonders for my heart and my attitude!  if you aren't busy, join in on ember grey's weekly grateful heart link-up with me!

here's what i'm grateful for today:
+ that we were able to leave the house for a bit today (as of yesterday, we were hearing predictions ranging from 3-18" of snow!)
+ getting to the gym yesterday (my body is starting to get back to craving working out a little)
+ i've made it through 9 whole days of whole30!  this thing is not easy, and i'm not feeling particularly great today (which they say is normal), but i'm proud of myself!
+ aj and i scheduled our first premarital counseling session...grateful that we go to a church that values premarital counseling, and that we can schedule these sessions for when aj comes home!
+ a productive afternoon meeting
+ evenings spent with good friends
+ a bunch of things to look forward to coming up soon
+ warm tea

what are you grateful for today?

oh, and just to sweeten your monday...here's a giveaway for a few gift cards that would be perfect for date night (ahem, valentine's day!), or a night out with your girls!


  1. Congrats on sticking with the whole 30 for at least nine days.

  2. First of all thanks for sharing , Love to visit this blog on and on , you always choose the right words. Amazing!!!

  3. Oh man... wedding planning date with my fiance! Because decisions are best made when you're not starving! :)

  4. If I don't take my fiance I have some serious explaining to do

  5. Hmmm...I was your 1000th Instagram follower, maybe that should count as 4 entries ;)

  6. I would take two boys: my husband and my son!

  7. Love this giveaway! I'd take my sweet husband. It'll be our first Valentine's Day as a married couple. :)

  8. What a lovely list of things to be thankful for! Way to go on doing Whole 30, I'v heard that is really challenging but worth it! Thanks for the giveaway! I would take my hubby, we LOVE Chili's! :)

  9. Great giveaway! I would use the card to have a much needed date night out with just my hubby, and have someone watch the baby for a night.

  10. Well done on the start to Whole30!! I bought the book and will be doing it myself, just have to wait to have this body all to myself first ;) Let's face it, my appetite is ridiculous in the last few mos of pregnancy so I'd be gnawing my arm if I couldn't just snack on whatever I wanted all day long LOL.
    Re premarital counseling - I was so glad that M and I did it! So many topics come up that you don't think about, or think you know the answer to, and it just brings you closer to really talk through it all.

  11. I have been thinking about you all day today with the snow!! How are you guys?! Any fun plans for Valentine's Day?!
