Getting Grateful on a Monday Afternoon

I don't know about you, but I feel like I'm not ready at all for this week!  AJ is currently in Nashville with Berklee but he's flying home on Wednesday, and I feel like I have a huge to-do list to check off before I can drop everything and just spend time with him this weekend.  Plus, I'm not feeling great.  I left church yesterday with the start of a sore throat that has just gotten worse and has also invited some nausea, a little headache, and just feelings of "ick" along with it.  I feel like crawling into bed and sleeping!

It's been a little while since I've participated in Emily's Grateful Heart Link-Up (she hosts it every Monday and it's open all week!), but I can't deny that it does good things for my heart and my perspective to start the week off with a grateful list, so I'm excited to do just that today!  It's super easy for me to get a little bit pessimistic when i'm not feeling well, so my heart needs to choose gratitude today!

Here are a few things that I'm particularly grateful for today:
+ As I mentioned, AJ's coming home!  We haven't seen one another in over 4 weeks, so I'm excited to spend some time together!
+ We are going to be getting a few things done for the wedding this weekend....yay!
+ Warm coffee in the morning
+ Working in a fantastic environment
+ Mark was home for his spring break last week....it was great to see him a bit!
+ Warmer weather settling in!  It's been in the 50s these past few days, and even though we have a few days that are in the low 40s on the horizon, even that feels warm compared to the cold, cold winter we've had!
+ The snow is melting (and you can actually see grass!)
+ Easter is only a few short weeks away
+ Having a bit of time to rest yesterday (and try to beat this cold!)



  1. All of that snow is already melting? Woah! Today is 80 here. It's throwing us all for a loop because soon enough we will be back to average 40 degree days. Hope you feel better soon sweet sister!

  2. Yes & amen to warmer weather and even warmer coffee! Best of luck with the wedding planning stuff this weekend! I'm super grateful for a cozy home and the promise of a smooth transition when I move in May. :)

  3. I hope you feel better soon! Yay for getting things done for the wedding & AJ coming home! I am grateful because Match Day is on Friday, and we will finally know where we are moving! :)

  4. Ugh, feeling sick is the worst! I am forever grateful for hot coffee in the morning and the promise of a new day :] Also, I am super thankful to have visited Ocean Isle Beach for the first time this weekend! -- What do you have planned to check off for the wedding?

  5. I love that you are choosing to be grateful! <3

  6. I agree it is so wonderful to see such positivity and gratefulness! Today I am extremely grateful for a dear friend of mine, I suffer from Meniere's Disease and recently had a vertigo attack while out by myself, she dropped everything to pick my up and take care of me. It's such a blessing to have her in my life!

  7. I love that you choose to be grateful and positive! I'm so grateful for the warm weather that is settling in and that the Cherry Blossoms will be blooming soon!

  8. Bets!! This is so weird, I KNOW I saw a note from you about AJ being in Nashville and now I don't remember where I saw it! That's so exciting though! I hope it went well, and I hope you're feeling better. Enjoy your time with your love! :)

  9. Haha yeah...maybe I wrote it in a comment on your blog? Or Instagram? I don't even remember either! He was there since Friday and he flew home this morning...toured some studios, spent a lot of time at Warner Bros....met some alumni. He was on a trip with Berklee so I don't think it was quite the "explore Nashville" trip that he would have liked, but it sounds like he made some good connections! I'm excited to have him home, of course, if only for a few days!

  10. So glad he had a good trip though... I'm anxious to hear his thoughts! (Selfishly I would love you to be here ha!)

  11. Warmer weather and Easter coming are things I'm grateful for too! I hope you feel better Betsy - good luck with your wedding prep plans this weekend!

  12. Feel better! Claire has been sick for the better part of 2 weeks and it's been awful! Hope you're feeling rested up so you can do all your fun wedding planning this weekend. :)
