thankful thursday {link up}

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

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Blue Bell ice cream.  Being a Texas girl, I've always been a fan of Blue Bell.  But just recently have I reacquainted myself with that old familiar Blue Bell Cookies'n'Cream.... soooo good.  Blue Bell does it right with the cookies'n'cream... it's not unlikely that you will find entire Oreo cookies within your bowl... and that, my friend, makes me very happy.

2) Pretty, pretty flowers.  I mean, what girl doesn't love flowers?  Especially a ginormous, fragrant bouquet delivered right to your front door on your anniversary!!  Even though my husband is currently on the other side of the world, he still managed to completely surprise me with flowers on our anniversary this week!  These flowers smell AMAZING... I'm pretty sure if you stick your nose close enough to your computer screen, you will be able to smell them... go ahead... try it.

3) This little thankful community.  Aka... YOU.  I absolutely love to read your lists.. how you are thankful for big and small... it's a constant reminder .  I'm grateful for the other blogs out there that also host Thankful Thursday link up parties, and I love how a few of us (Cami, Kate, Sarah, Carina, and Heather)  manage to all be thankful together every week.  

I always love reading all of your Thankful Thursday link-ups each week... some make me laugh, some make me nod in agreement, and some just simply warm my heart.  Last week Jennifer, from Jennifer Dawn McLucas, wrote a beautiful post about grace... about how grace frees us from our list of "shoulds."  If you didn't read it last week, I'd definitely encourage you to go read it today... beautifully written, as all of Jennifer's posts are.

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!!

Yay! I'm the first on your list. I'm normally the last :) One more thing to be thankful for. Thank you for hosting the link up again. I saw the pic of your ice cream and my mouth started to water. I am too so thankful for the blogging community but like you say the ones that are thankful are my favorite... shh... don't tell.

Thanks so much for your kind words about my post. I love the way you lead Thankful Thursday! Happy anniversary! I read your anniversary post, so sweet. As hard as I tried I couldn't smell your beautiful flowers. I love that moss box you put them in though, that is a very clever idea!
