24 Years & 24 Reason I'm Thankful

Updated: Jul 5, 2020

With so many big plans coming up in the near future, I often find myself spending so much more time making plans for the weeks & months to come than appreciating what & who has gotten me this far.

As I reflect on the last year of my life in anticipation of my 24th birthday, I can't help but think about all of the things and people that have made this year so special.

I'd like to dedicate these words of gratitude to my friends and family, who truly add so much abundance to my life I am often overwhelmed with how much love I am surrounded with.

In honor of 24 trips around the sun, here are 24 things that I'm grateful for in this beautiful life:

  1. Dog cuddles & kisses (esp. from Stella)

  2. Friendships that last despite time & space apart (y'all know who you are)

  3. The opportunity to move across the country with my best friend/boyfriend

  4. Southern fast food (LOL)

  5. A new season of Selling Sunset

  6. Having a mom who doubles as a best friend

  7. Chocolate milkshakes

  8. Drinking coffee on a Saturday morning

  9. Finding a new favorite book

  10. Octobers

  11. True crime podcasts

  12. Practicing yoga

  13. The anticipation of waiting for a package to arrive in the mail

  14. Diet Coke

  15. Late night trips to Target

  16. Traveling & new experiences

  17. Family camping trips

  18. Wine & Bachelor nights with my girls (we are very ready for Matt James to bless our TV screens every week)

  19. Learning something new

  20. Graphic tees

  21. The perfect playlist (usually one I've made myself)

  22. Catching up with a good friend

  23. Creative writing

  24. Another birthday.

"Do not forget a single blessing." - Psalm 103:2

I hope this has given you an ounce of inspiration to reflect on life's blessings. It sure does feel good! Don't forget to be thankful for the little things.
