A Very Grateful Monday: March 12, 2017

What a month!

My last post included a commitment to update this blog with a list of things I'm grateful for every week.  And then Carnival happened here in New Orleans and I was so busy getting my house organized and catching beads and eating all the Popeyes that I forgot to write anything down!  

Even though things in the city have calmed down, the last few weeks have been filled with stress and chaos for me.  For the first time, it seems like things are back on track, and writing has been a huge part of that.  In no particular order and before I head off to work, here are the things I'm grateful for this sleepy Monday morning:

-coffee (this will always be on my list)

-the ability to think outside the box, which has saved my ass more times than one

-clean sheets and warm blankets

-free refills on iced coffee (seriously - the best gift)

-wedding cake snowballs with condensed milk on top


-new opportunities

-seafood, because some people just eat PB&J sandwiches on Fridays during Lent

-quality time with good friends

-the magnificent Oreo cheesecake I ate the other night

-other people sharing their gifts and talents.  it makes the whole world better.

Happy Monday, y'all.  Here's to a great week ahead!
