Five Gratefuls

"When I give thanks for the seemingly microscopic, I make a place for God to grow within me." - Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts 

It's a season of being thankful so it makes sense to start photographically commemorating my gratitude. 

And yet, I want to make sure that I'm not only grateful during November. I'm so much happier this time of a year and I think it's because I consciously slow down and enjoy the season, soak in time with family and don't mind if people judge me for jamming to Christmas music. Sure, there are cozy sweaters and hot chocolate involved too but I don't need those to be grateful year-round. 

And so for this week, here is what I'm thankful for each day, even the small things because that's where life and beauty are found, right? 

God, may I be a more grateful person always. Not just this time of year. 

monday // hair

tuesday // my messy but comfortable bed

wednesday // sun after rainy days

thursday // a refreshing face wash on a sunny morning 

friday // this man {my husband}
