I went out to get the eggs from the coop yesterday morning and can I just say, these first few minutes of the morning are quickly becoming a favorite part of my day. My short walk out to the chickens gives me a few minutes to breathe in the morning air and give thanks to God for such a wonderful life.
I find myself talking out loud at times showing graditude for so many things. Thankfulness for this amazing home we've created. We looked for over 5 years for a house. We wanted to be in the hustle and bustle of the city but also had a deep craving for a simple country life.

This home has given us both. We are just two miles from the heart of downtown yet our backyard is filled with endless acres of tranquility and nature. And chickens! I never would have imagined having chickens...I feel like a true country gal.
I am thankful for our health each and every morning. Thankful for a house full of boys that continually remind me to let loose and not take life too seriously. I am thankful for a sweet, nearly 3 month old, baby who is sleeping through the night.
I am thankful for my friendships~new and old. And more than anything, I am thankful for living this ridiculously amazing life with Mike. That man is beyond my perfect partner.
What are you thankful for?
