gratitude!

this week started out pretty good, but ended on a totally depressing note.  still, that's okay because a whole lot of awesome stuff happened which has left me super excited about life on this gloriously sunny friday.  

here's what i'm thankful for this week:
* getting to know a new friend better.
* a coffee date at intelligentsia.
* finding delicious cow girl creamery cheese at the fancy shmancy silverlake cheese store.
* enjoying a stroll around the silverlake lake on a sunny afternoon.
* getting to wear a sundress outside every day this week.
* buying our tickets for the railroad revival tour to see mumford & sons, edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros, and old crow medicine show {it'll be for the mister's 31st birthday}.
* putting on sunscreen... which means that summer is practically upon us!
* getting some writing done {and having several fun coffee shops at which to do my writing}.
* turkey jerky {yes, i'm mostly a vegetarian, but this stuff seriously saved me when i had low blood sugar}.
and....
* getting fun packages!
like these two:
- erin, one of my favorite bloggers {and people}, sent me this super cute recycled coin purse.  isn't it fun?
- and we got yet another amazing wedding gift, this time from my super awesome big sister -- a picture frame made out of reclaimed wood from our great grandparent's and great great grandparent's old barn in the wisconsin country side.  even more special, my uncle is the one who made it!
thanks jenny!!!

{weeeeee!}

i'm also excited for this weekend because we're going to a friend's birthday bash, where we will finally get to eat that delicious cowgirl creamery cheese! yum!!

what are you thankful for?
