a list of little things | things i'm grateful for

things i'm grateful for:
my charming neighborhood, where cafes look like paintings.
friends who listen and laugh and empathize.
the opportunity to pursue the art that I love so much.
any and every kind of peanut butter.
chilly afternoons spent nestled beneath cozy blankets.
the calm that comes from having a clean, candlelit apartment.
missy higgins--her soft, whisper-sweet sort of voice.
the insight gleaned from nicole krauss's words.
best friends who have been my best friends since preschool.
holiday lights glowing throughout the city.
morning endorphins, afternoon adventures, evening tea.
the warmth, the kindness that underlies this season.
and, above all, the health and happiness of my family and friends.

Tell me: what are you feeling grateful for?

Its so important to be thankful, isn't it? And not just at this time of year! I love your list. Today I am thankful for colored balloons, leaves to jump into, the internet, toothpaste, indoor pluming, and warm apple crisp.

Your neighborhood looks dreamy!
I am grateful for chilly afternoons spent nestled beneath cozy blankets as well & for spending this long weekend with family and friends.

I saw Missy Higgins in SF two years ago. LOVE! Her voice is ahhmazing. The venue was small and she put on a perfect show. I am grateful for the running trails around my home, my school's campus that feels like I am hiking rather than walking to class, and people who listen. Love this series of yours! xo
