thankful thursday {link up}

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

This Thursday I am thankful for...


1) Handmade cuteness.  Like, seriously.  Are these not the ABSOLUTE cutest outfits you have ever seen?!?!  And they were handmade by a friend of mine that I went to high school with.  HANDMADE PEOPLE.  These arrived very unexpectedly in my mailbox last Thursday, and it was such a delightful surprise.  I started crying when I saw baby girl's name actually on something.  Once again, the "realness" of it all hit me like a tidal wave.  And don't even get me started on those bloomers...

2) Milkshakes at work.  Nothing helps you get through the work day like an afternoon strawberry milkshake.  Last week our plant manager bought everyone in the office milkshakes and it was the perfect pick-me-up to a super busy day.  Sometimes it's the smallest things.

3) Getting home before dark.  The beginning of every month is always my busiest for work... which often means working until 8:00 and 9:00 at night.  So, I always love those first few days when things start to slow down enough for me to leave the office at a much more normal hour... aka, daylight.  I don't know what I'm going to do in the winter...

The outfits are truly too cute for words. The fact that they are hand made make them even cuter. Milkshakes are the absolute best.

When I was pregnant with Annabelle someone gave me monogrammed outfits for both girls and I cried. Something about seeing their name on ruffles and gingham and knowing that baby is YOURS.
