A Heart of Gratitude

If you asked me what has changed my life the most in the past few years, I'd probably tell you a gratitude journal. I've been journaling in different notebooks for the past few years, making a note of 3-5 things that blessed me throughout the day. Not only do I go to bed with a full heart, but I tend to wake up the next morning overwhelmed with blessings. Here are my 5 things to be happy about this week!

1. Amazingly sweet cards in the mail!

2. A milkshake break: I love spring; its really no secret. The second the weather warmed up, I was the first in line for a treat or two.

3. Enjoying 80+ degree weather and working outside: I tend to have a restless spirit, so spring helps me come alive and channel my energy.

4. Celebrating new life: my best friend is having a baby next month!

5. On the chance to connect locally! Kate and I met a few months prior to attending Blissdom, but really got the chance to connect there. Now we meet every few weeks to swap blog/business ideas and encourage one another with our goals. Last week we swapped cards {plus she gave me a gift!}, and boy did it make my heart happy! And did you see: we partnered up with her little sister, Lauren, and are hosting a blog meet up next month. We've already gotten a great response, so if you're in the area we'd love to have you!


  1. So many things to be grateful for! Today, I'm going to set aside some time to acknowledge the things I'm most thankful for. Thanks for the reminder, Carrie! :)

  2. Great post!! I need to remember the little things I'm grateful for...sometimes I focus too much on what I don't have ;-)

  3. Carrie... I post my gratitude message each morning on my fb page...isn't it wonderful to spread the joy of it all?

    Hugs and gratitude

  4. Great reminder to count my blessings Carrie :) THANK YOU!
