gratitude, day 13.

gratitude_xsgratitude is a miraculous, wonderful thing. it really does turn what we have into enough. sometimes – often, even – it reminds us that what we have is even more than we need. although it’s kind of a “thing” for people to list something they are grateful for each day in november, this isn’t really that. it’s sort of my mash-up of a daily writing exercise i see people do every day in october paired with practicing gratitude. it won’t be the same every day. sometimes it will be a short, quick post, and other times it will be a reflection or recipe. but most importantly, every day there will be gratitude.

today, i am grateful for wanderlust.


there are many traits & passions that i inherited from my grandma carolyn, but i think the one i am most grateful for is her wanderlust. she was a remarkable woman, and among her many loves was seeing the world. she prioritized travel, went to incredible places with friends, made new friends along the way, and had incredible stories & pictures to document her adventures. every time i get the itch to go & see & experience something new in a new place, i can feel her deep in my core.

i have a handful of pictures that go along with this post, but i am honestly exhausted. i’m battling some guilt for not getting this post done in its entirety today, but i think it’s going to be perfectly fine to come back and add the pictures tomorrow. in the meantime…some rest. **pictures posted…now i feel better :o)
