lovely little things

Lately I have been struggling with discontent (and I am working on a post exploring more about that and what God has been teaching me about that), but I have found that one of the most effective ways to combat discontent is to develop gratefulness- in the big and small things. So here are some things that I am grateful for this week!

A snuggly friend when nights get cold

pumpkin pancakes that still taste awesome even when they're not pretty.
(baking mix+ pumpkin+brown sugar+ pumpkin pie spice
topped with cream cheese frosting)

fall fashion- hand me down sweater, skinnies from JCP with gift card and gorgeous NS Pottery necklace

an awesome job where I'm surrounded by the smell of cupcakes, good music and enough free time to answer emails
oh, and a boss who will leave to buy me a latte when it's cold out! 

this pretty headband from All Glorious Within

a big beautiful dog park with breathtaking views

and an awesome friend to walk through it with

What are you grateful for this week?
