So, yet again I planned to post about our Swedish friends visit to America, and I’ve failed. I got the pictures off my camera at work and emailed them to myself. I got home to realize I only attached one picture. ONE PICTURE. And it was of flowers I saw outside. I was going to use the photo anyway for this post but when I went to edit it I noticed the flowers were fake. I took pictures of flowers outside…that weren’t real… Sigh.
Lucky for you guys I read Alli’s post about Ember Grey’s Grateful Heart linkup. Seeing as I had no post and I’m all about being positive, looks like I’m joining in on the fun!
This a corny but obvious numero uno. I mean, we’ve been married almost three months, it’s still reasonable to be cute and gross. To sum it up quick: I love him, he makes my day sunshiney, the rest of my life is going to much more awesome and exciting because he’s in it.
If you’ve read my blog or looked at my Instagram, you’re probably surprised Gatsby wasn’t number one. He would be but Carl will probably read this at some point and would give me grief about it. Love you honey!
We can finally pay bills without stress.
These past twoish years Carl and I have scraped by to make ends meet. We’ve worked multiple jobs, sold plasma, cried, gotten help from parents and stressed to no end. This past month there finally was an end. We finally have money going into savings and don’t have to worry if our next paycheck will be enough to cover rent.
I have a job I love.
It took me a long time to finally have a real job. Since graduating college I’ve had 5 jobs, none of which actually paid my bills. Now I have a job that pays my bills AND I enjoy it. I get to craft, blog, film videos, learn things, take vacations, not hide my tattoos and have my boss tell me dying my hair lilac would be a great idea. It’s AMAZING. I knew one day everything would be ok, but finally reaching that point is such a gratifying relief.
Sharknado 2 premiered tonight.
I’m not even kidding. I’m somewhat live tweeting it, that’s how not ashamed I am. I even downloaded the Sharknado app they just released. I’m not so into I would invest more the $1 we spent at Redbox to watch the first one, but either way I’m highly entertained.
Taking the time to remind yourself of the things you’re grateful for does make your heart smile.
What are you grateful for?
