Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, folks! I’m back linking up with the ladies for Thankful Thursday.

Although I could list numerous things that I’m thankful for every week, I try to keep my list to the top three moments or things that stood out to me during the week. For this week, I’m thankful …

1. … that our dishwasher is finally fixed! It’s been broken since last week, and the part arrived yesterday for Ryan to install. It’s amazing the appliances you take for granted until you don’t have it anymore – if I don’t have to wash dishes by hand for the next month, I’ll be happy.

2. … that we almost are done sanding the vintage vanity! The table is pretty much finished, so now it’s on to the drawers and mirror. And then, PAINT! I will be writing an extensive post about this whole process, but if you want some sneak peeks, be sure to follow me on Instagram.

3. … this guy. That’s a given every week. I was especially grateful that his birthday fell on his weekend off work, so were were able to celebrate in style and spend some much-needed quality time together. It’s times like these that I cherish most during our first year of marriage.

What are you thankful for this week? Tell me in the comments below!

    I'm thankful that your Dad and I got to spend some time with both of you for Ryan's birthday – he is, after all, one of our favorite people! Also thankful that it's finally starting to feel like Spring!
