thankful thursday {link up} & embrace the camera

{link up your own Thankful Thursday post below}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Friends & food. Last night I went to Nava in Atlanta with some very dear friends. We laughed and chatted over delicious food and wine. It was my first time eating at Nava and it.was.delicious. But the company was even better:) (This is my embrace the camera photo this week too!)


2) A new journal. I recently bought a new journal and I'm excited about breaking it open and writing on those first few pages. There is just something about putting pen-to-paper... something therapeutic... but more on this later.


3) Newness. All this talk about the new year... new goals... new journal... all this newness. I can't help but feel motivated. I've been thinking a lot about my recent resolutions and I'm eager to see what the newness of the new year brings.



What are you thankful for this week? Grab the Thankful Thursday button from the right sidebar and link up your own post below. Be sure to visit the other Thankful Thursday participants and share the love!

I'm also linking up to Emily's blog this week for Embrace the Camera:)

I've recently started a journal for each of my kids, now if I could remember to write in them on a more regular basis. :)

Stopping by from ETC. Girls Nights are the best! And as for new journals... I tend to collect them and not write anything. Well, actually, I will write a few times and then go back and decide I'm silly and tear it out. I've been doing it for years. That's the nice thing about blogging... I am not so quick to just trash it and start over since it's already out there! I know journaling is a great outlet though. Enjoy!
