{Gratitude Lately}

Lately, I've been thankful for

Friends who share
and delicious Manhattans

Music and memories
 of my youth

This sweet girl,
 who reminds me
 to stop and smell the snow

Adventures in distant countries
and the joy of memories

Winter sunsets 
through the trees

Saturday nights
and shared snacks

Friday nights
and a new bottle of wine

Creative neighbors
and the joy they share

Valentine's Day 
with my best friend

 Snail mail 
and cute 2-year-olds

Open windows in February

Creative community art

Grilling in February
 in Nebraska

Beautiful commutes
that make early mornings 

and the first sign of spring.

Happy Sunday, friends!
What are you grateful for this week?

  1. Teehee - love how many of those pics include alcohol!

  2. So much to be grateful for! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Vicki. These posts help to remind me of all that is good.

  3. You do have a lot to be thankful for, and this is a great reminder to grateful for both the large and the small things that life has to offer!

  4. That's more than 25%! And I'm convinced that you shop for wine based on the prettiness of the label. ;)

    1. Ha! I do, Janet! However, I recently bought wine in a box and it's good, but lacks the pretty label. :(

  5. Open windows in February, sunsets through the trees and best friends to spend Valentine's Day with for sure!

    1. Bellezza, now we'll have to start closing the windows as the pollen is beginning to bother my poor husband. Spring in Nebraska is not his favorite season.

  6. Such a lovely post and so much to be grateful for! We are starting to bloom here and I can't believe it's already time for spring--I don't think we had a single freeze this year. Can't wait for more blossoms. :)

    1. Aw, thanks Trish. I enjoy putting these posts together as both a reminder of all that I'm grateful for and as a place to share my Instagram pix. Wow! No hard freeze, ice or snow for you guys this winter?? I guess I didn't realize that. Hate to think what that might mean for your summer...
