thankful thursday


{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Southern home-cooked food.  And man, did I get my fill of it this past weekend.  At Lance's family reunion pretty much all we do is eat amazing home-cooked food and play crazy games... (but more on that later).  I'm pretty sure I had more fried okra and sweet tea this past weekend than I have all of last year combined... which I am totally okay with.

2) Shaved ice goodness.  Lance and I discovered this amazing dessert spot close to my office in Atlanta... they specialize in shaved ice treats... and it.was.amazing.  Even better than a snow cone, dare I say.  I'm not even sure how to explain it... it's like shaved gellato (I got strawberry) with condensed milk and fresh strawberries on the top... omg... so.flippin.good. 

 3) My short commute to work.  I've been working at the office in Atlanta this past week... and Tuesday I drove my old commute... from Habersham to Gwinnett... 61.5 miles... ONE WAY.  I used to drive that every.single.day.  That's 123 miles a day... usually about 3 hours of my life... every.single.day.   That little reminder makes me oh-so-grateful for my short commute up the stairs every morning.  So, so thankful.
