Thankful Thursday

February 23, 2012

What a gorgeous week! Blue skies, no clouds, temperatures near 70* today — could anything be better? I know we never had a real winter here in DC — can you believe the biggest snowstorm I saw this year was in southwest Texas?! — but it was nice not to bundle up and freeze every day.

Okay, one snow day would have been nice.

This week, I’m thankful for:

  • fresh oranges, pomegranates and berries — none of it’s local but it’s such a nice change from the apples and pears that made up the earlier part of fall and winter grocery shopping
  • dinner dates with friends from abroad
  • dinner dates with friends who recently moved home from abroad
  • booking plane tickets to two exotic summer locations: Chicago and Goderich, Ontario
  • grande one-pump peppermint skim misto
  • literally LOL’ing during Mindy Kaling’s book
  • flats and no tights
  • healthy Lenten resolutions

What are you thankful for this week?

    Water. I’ve been drinking all sorts of other things lately (iced tea, lemonade, cranberry juice, Dr. Pepper) and this morning I glugged some water and was reminded how wonderful the simplest things are.

    I’ve always wanted to go to Chicago, looks beautiful and sounds like a city full of fun! This week I am grateful for a short work week [3 days] 😀
