Today I am thankful for...

~A great night of fellowship at Bible study

~Empty laundry baskets

~The caramel candies that seem to be disappearing rapidly from the candy dish ;-)
~A best friend I can laugh with every day, wake up next to every morning, and share everything with. Oh, and who also happens to be my husband! Today I had an epiphany and realized that marriage is really surprising me. I guess I had always thought that the wedding day would be the day filled with the most love for one another. Today I realized that I really think our love for each other has grown a little every single day. So for the past 466 days, our love has grown and we've gotten closer and closer (thank you, for letting me know exactly how many days we've been married... WOW, we still haven't been married for as long as we were engaged!) If this keeps going, I can't wait to see where we are in 60 years!! Anyway, enough sappiness!

~The book "Love and Respect" by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. I'm learning so much from it already.
~A beautiful 70 degree day. One last taste of summer before the cold really sets in!


~Butternut squash soup, which I am attempting to make for the first time tomorrow.
~Mums, pumpkins and apples.

~Finally feeling completely content in this stage of life, and coming to terms with the fact that I'm happy we aren't ready to have kids yet! I can't wait for that time to come, but I'm finally able to live in the moment and not constantly yearn for a baby. Praise God!

~THIS overload of cuteness who has been our main source of entertainment for about 4 weeks:
~A God who provides me with so many great blessings every day, and who I know will always provide me with unconditional love, peace, and comfort.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I'm glad that you like "Love and Respect." I've been wanting to read it, but have been wanting to hear a report first!

  2. THere is so much to be thankful for each day! Oh, how He loves us!! We as people are blessed daily in some way. Hope your having a nice week.

  3. What a lovely post! I couldn't agree more!

  4. Good post. I agree and have had the same revelation about marriage. I'll have to look into that book too.

  5. Those are lots of things to be thankful for! I've wanted to attempt making the butternut squash soup, but don't know any good recipes. If you like how your turns out, will you share it with me? Please!
    Love your pictures from the White House Fruit Farm by the way!

  6. Such wonderful things to be thankful for!!
    Hubby & I have been married 384 days and totally more in love than the day we married. Deeeper, Strong, Better. It's completely awesome -- I so love every minute of married life! Everything is better because we're together!

    And empty laundry baskets...that's always a wonderful thing to have! I caught up on ALL my laundry (towels, sheets, & everything!) last weekend for the first time in ages. Ahh, the bliss. LOL

    Happy weekend!

  7. Let me know how the Butternut Squash soup turns out! I love Bn squash! So far I have resorted to using the V8 type from the grocery store, but I'm definitely interested in a good homemade recipe!

  8. Big fan of the book, love butternut squash soup, and still working on the attitude about babies! But I really am thankful for where we are right now, like you said.


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
