Thankful Thursday: 10/18

October 18, 2012 | Thankful Thursday | 26 Comments

Some of my best blog friends often write things that they are thankful for on Thursdays or at the end of their daily posts. To put it simply, they've inspired me to write a Thankful Thursday post of my own and maybe make it a weekly thing! :)

These Thankful Thursday posts will include a week's worth of things that I am thankful for :) 

Everyday for a week I have documented one thing that I am thankful for! :)
Here's my list from the past week:

I am thankful for…

Friday, October 12 – Having a great friend like Chelsea who is always willing to go out for sushi with me! 

Saturday, October 13 – Going out for tea with a new friend that I made this year!

Sunday, October 14 – Having a Mom who supports me no matter what! 

Monday, October 15 – The librarian at Brescia who comforted me and relieved my stresses due to my research paper. 

Tuesday, October 16 – Having a FaceTime date with Abby!

Wednesday, October 17 – Having a FaceTime date with Brittany

Thursday, October 18 – Waking up to two messages from friends saying that they "loved" yesterday's post! :)

I hope you enjoyed this post! Feel free to join in by telling me something you're thankful for below! :) 

Did you enjoy this new post idea?

Would you like to see more Thankful Thursdays?

Would you be interested in writing your own Thankful Thursday post?

Remember to send me your high fives for tomorrow's High Five Friday post! If you're a new reader, please read more about High Five Friday here and don't be shy to join in on the celebration! :)

Love love love,

    I’m thankful for my amazing (but quick) visit to see my family in Newfoundland, over the Thanksgiving week. I had a great time, but definitely missing it.

    Happy Friday Junior, Meg! :)

    Do you order a bowl of rice with your beloved sashimis at japanese restaurants or do you only eat plain proteins?

    Wish you good luck with your school paper :)

    Love Thankful Thursday’s! I’ve done a few myself and think they’re great :) It’s sometimes the littlest things in life that can mean the most and taking the time to thank whoever shared them with you can be so touching :)

    A little off topic here, but I’m a total David’sTea virgin (for shame, I know, I know) and, as I’ve finally decided to take the leap and order some online, I was wondering your top recommendation would be for a first-timer (the fall collection looks incredible!!) You seem like quite the David’sTea guru.

    Also, on another note, I’m really thankful for dry cappuccinos, a family that’s pretty kick-ass (If I do say so myself), and $2/lb. honeycrisp apples. It’s the little things (and the big, incredible, beautiful things that are actually people) that make this chilly weather and busy month completely survivable.

      The teas I drink on a daily basis are:

      – Brazillionaire
      – Gold Rush
      – Cinnamon Rooibos Chai
      – Coffee Puerh
      – Ginger Puerh
      – Bravissimo
      – Banana Nut Bread
      – Ever Green
      – Blueberry Jam
      – Pineapple Oolong
      – Banana Oolong
      – Toasted Walnut

      Wowwww I could keep going :) you can always email me and tell me what YOU personally like in a tea and then I can tell you their best fruity teas/spicy teas etc.!

    These are all such great things to be thankful for. I love how a lot of the things you are thankful for are outings with friends and being social. What an inspiration!

    I love Thankful Thursday posts! It’s easy to forget how much we have to be thankful for, especially when we’re stressed by school/work/family issues etc. We’re truly SO SO blessed! As Cait says, “blessed to be stressed.” I love that phrase, and try to remind myself of it when I’m feeling particularly overwhelmed.

    Sis, I’m thankful for YOU!! Thank you for your support this week. It truly meant so much. <3 I can't wait to chat with you sooooon! xoxoxo <3
