thankful thursday {link up}

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

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Tomatoes.  The tomatoes have been coming in steadily the past few weeks.  We have a counter full of them right now.  There's just something about homegrown tomatoes.  I've been loving them in my salads... by themselves... with mozzarella... and with bacon.  Mmmm.  We've been eating bacon and tomato sandwiches like it's our job around here.

2) Work trip.  I'm heading to Chesapeake, VA for a work trip the next several days.  I'll be honest, my initial response wasn't gratitude.  I didn't want to be gone from my husband on the weekend, and there's so much I want to work on in the nursery... But you know what?  I'm thankful I get to travel this week.  I get to visit a city that I've never been to... maybe even make a pit stop at Virginia Beach... I'll get to meet some new co-workers... and I secretly love hotel stays.  Besides, I'm starting to realize that my quiet alone time is very, very limited in the coming days:)

3) A bowl full of love.  Over the past couple of months, we have received so much love, support, and encouragement from so many friends and family in regards to our adoption.  Seriously.  So much.  I've been saving all of the cards and notes and letters... I've been tucking them away in a bowl in baby girl's room.  That bowl is practically overflowing.  I can't even tell you how happy this makes me.  I love that one day, our daughter will be able to see this giant pile of cards and letters and she will know.  She will know how incredibly loved and adored she is... always.

I wish that work trip was a little further south :P. I have been trying to keep up with all of my cards this year after one of your posts so I can bind the goods ones together... Really need to sort through that massive stack from the baby shower for the ones that actually have something written in them. Happy Thankful Thursday... thanks for hosting!

Tomatoes are my absolute FAVORITE!! I am always so sad when the last of them are gone. I've missed linking up with you! Hope that things are great!

I love tomatoes. I can eat them like people eat apples. How cool that you have a garden of them. I would probably eat them all at once.

I am sure you are in awe of the love your baby girl is receiving already. Enjoy your trip and your hotel stay.

Love that you have all the precious cards from all of these people in a jar in baby girl's room. That is so awesome. And she can read them when she grows up! :)
