t.h.a.n.k.f.u.l.

My mom used to sing, "count your many blessings, name them one by one..." I'm sure my sisters and I spent more time rolling our eyes than actually pausing with any sense of gratitude. (Sorry, mom) but tonight I'm taking the time to process a handful of our blessings here. And then I will most likely take the next couple weeks to unpack each of these in a bit more detail. 

We have a third grader. And a kindergartner. Crazy! The girls have loved their first week of school and we're so excited to get back to school. They thrive with a bit more structure of a daily routine and really do love to learn. 

Drew is doing great! He had a follow up with his cardiologist last month and everything with his heart and valve look amazing! 

Last week I wrapped up a job I loved and was able to be home today. I am so looking forward to whatever God has for me in this next season. And even more excited about this immediate future - really settling into our house, being a mom and wife full time, reading, organizing, crafting, catching up on the blog, etc. ahh! I'm so pumped. 

We have an amazing house. We sold our house in south Minneapolis in May and moved here to our new house in June. We have absolutely loved being here. There will be many more blog posts to follow regarding the house and its pending projects. :)

We got to spend time with lots of family and friends this summer. So many quick trips to see lots of people!!  And we soaked up as much of the summer as we could here too - beach, trampoline, sprinkler, bubbles! 

Fall is coming. Football is here. Our windows have been open at the house this week. Cardigans. :) As much as I love the heat of summer, this season is so refreshing to me. 

Jesus, may my heart continue to be one filled with gratitude. May I be quick to acknowledge your provisions. May I readily offer grace and forgiveness to others and myself.
