It’s been a week y’all. I have definitely been burning the candle at both ends and my patience has been tested to the max this week. Life has been a bunch of lemons lately and I’m ready for some damn lemonade right now. I think it’s even more important for me to do a gratitude Friday post this week considering it’s been so crappy because regardless, I have a lot to be grateful for. So here goes!
I am grateful for…
Without it I don’t think I would be surviving right now. The teeth are coming in fast and furious for my 9 month old and sleep is a hard thing to come by because of it. To say I’m exhausted is an understatement.
The ritual of making coffee
We use a french press and we buy whole coffee beans to grind. I enjoy the process every morning.
It’s my favorite. For some reason, ever since having Amelia I’ve been exclusively drinking Pinot Noir.
My washer and dryer
Yes I am! I’ve lived in many places where I’ve had to go to the laundromat. It. Really. Sucks. Now with a baby, it would suck even more. I am so grateful for this first world amenity.
My trusty 2010 MacBook Pro
In computer/techie land my computer is considered ancient. However, Jean Valjean, as he’s named, is in excellent condition! Yay for great investments!
Last night I didn’t have the desire or energy to cook. So instead I ordered Chinese take out. It’s the perfect comfort junk food. It always hits the spot.
I leave you all with pictures of where my heart lies – the swamps of Louisiana. My Grandparents lived down in Cajun country and as a kid I spent summers down there with them. Some of my fondest childhood memories lie in these swamps. My sweet Granny passed away a little over a year ago. I miss her every day. I am grateful for our relationship and the safe haven she created for myself and my brother.
Happy Friday everyone!
