10 Things From My Week #1

IMG_1193

Today I’m wanting to start to recap my week by sharing and focusing on the simple and little things that made my week wonderful! Because in less than a week, my schedule will implode and I know I will be extremely anxious and overwhelemed at times, this will help me to stay postive during overly packed and stressful weeks!

I’m inspired by Rosie from Cider with Rosie, and Emily from Dear You, Love Em to do this. Two incredible bloggers who are always so positive and seem to be so sweet. I would love to have a cup of tea someday with both of them!

Also, Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts, (which I am almost done with!) talks about giving thanks for all things, so, 10 things I am thankful for this past week:

This week was really my last full week of summer, and it was relaxing and overall really lovely!

1. Our old dog, now my sisters dog, is staying with us for a couple weeks before he moves to New York. It has been so fun having him around and keeping me company. His name is Jack, after C.S. Lewis! (my mom is a huge C.S. Lews ethusiast!). He is a sweet goldendoodle (the best breed), and still acts like a puppy, even though he’s almost 8!

2. Time at night to finish Downton Abbey, but it was a very sweet ending. Now all I want to do is to move to England! (Tony is the best replacement for Matthew, am I right?)

3.Relaxing mornings of reflection and reading outside on my back porch

4.The Great British Bake Off episodes on Youtube (I wish it would show in America 😦 )

5. HARD hikes, straight up a mountain, but the waterfall and the view at the top was so worth it.

6. 2 mile runs

7. Homemade Irish soda bread (recipe to come!)

8. Babysitting jobs to the cutest kids

9.Those lemon, coconut bars (seriously though! Soo delicious!)

10.Night out to dinner with some of my sweet friends! and ended the night with Uptown Girls,which I had never seen! (these girls kept talking about wanting to be on the blog, so they are officially on the blog! 🙂 )
