Grateful #2: What are you thankful for today?

Happy weekend!

Firstly, I just wanted to shout out a big gushy, sentimental thank you! to everyone that has been reading, following, and commenting on our blog – it warms my heart, and if you could see me right now, typing away, complete with a cup of tea, I’m actually grinning. Thank you for your support – it’s a wonderful, wonderful thing.

This week, as well as being grateful for blogs, free speech, and lovely, supportive readers, I’m grateful for:

Cameras. Instant memory catchers. This week I’ve been snap-happy trying to capture Lou’s new smile – and have taken about a hundred photos of her sweet face without once having captured that particular smile. Think: wee baby teeth, crinkled nose, and a little lady who knows exactly how adorable that grin really is.

Lactose free milk. A tall, cold glass of milk, and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Enough said.

Charlotte Bronte. Ploughing through Jane Eyre at breakneck speed – currently at the part where lovely Jane, beautifully humble in her modest wedding garb is about to say her vows in the chapel, only to be told that her fiancĂ©, the eccentric Mr. Rochester, has a mad, violent wife imprisoned in his house. I love the high drama, the exaggerated morality, and general swoony-ness of this book; and it’s been so lovely snuggling down in bed with a night-light to read away while the house sleeps.

What are you grateful for this week?
