Thankful Thursday

Every Thursday I share what I'm thankful for.  Sometimes it's a serious or big thing, and sometimes it's a goofy or small thing.  I believe that no matter what is going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for.  Always.

This past week, Michael and I celebrated our thirty fourth wedding anniversary.  We drove two hours to eat breakfast at the Original Pancake House, shopped for a lamp, lingered at the bookstore and had dinner before going home.  Maybe not the most romantic way to celebrate, but I'm just thankful we can celebrate!  Thankful to have an anniversary.  Thankful to be happily married.

I'm also thankful for
     *  spring like temperatures
     *  overnight UPS 
     *  days that are productive
     *  old pictures full of memories

What are you thankful for today?

Have a fabulous Thursday!

  1. Happy Anniversary, Annette! That is a sweet photo :) Sounds like you had a lovely time...and aren't you lucky to be enjoying milder weather! I'm thankful that I have no errands to run, as it's pretty stormy out there today!

  2. Happy Anniversary! 34 years is a wonderful time to celebrate! Sounds like you had a great day :)

  3. Happy Anniversary! Sounds like a perfect day. I love days like that with my husband - nothing special really, yet so full of memories and fun. When I think back on celebrations, it's the simple ones that always stand out in my memory.

    This week...
    Wind that has finally gone away, warmer temperatures and sunny skies which means we are able to take the little munchkins outside for recess again!

    Chats with a good friend.

    Laughing moments spent with my boys.

    Happy Thursday!

  5. Happy anniversary, Annette, and many more. It sounds like a lovely day together. It doesn't matter that it wasn't romantic. Just being together is what's important. Actually, now that I think about it, it was romantic! Just wanting to spend the day together IS romantic.

  6. CONGRATS!!! :)
