thankful thursday: emptying my inbox, fresh basil, date night, engaged friends.

Today is Thursday, and you know what that means!

This week, I am thankful for:

Emptying my Inbox. It doesn't happen often, but when I've sorted through and replied to all of my emails, it makes me feel like one productive happy girl!

Fresh Basil. I love love love basil. The smell of it. The taste of it. The way it looks sprinkled atop pizza. Next year I would love to grow my own garden, and it would be amazing to include some fresh herbs such as basil in it. Yum.

Date Night. Tonight is date night for husband and me! Yay! Date nights are a favorite. Even if all we do is stay at home and cook dinner together, having a night set aside for just us is oh-so-important and oh-so-perfect. Getting to spend quality time with my best friend and love of my life is my fave!

Engaged Friends. I already mentioned it once today, but I'll say it again (because I am just THAT excited about it): Two of our best friends are engaged and we are so happy for them!

What are you thankful for this week?


  1. I'm thankful that my daughter is so thankful!

  2. I'm thankful that God put Laura in Thorne's life! She is going to be an amazing and wonderful addition to the Chalk family!
