It has been a bit of a challenging week at times for varying reasons, but we've made it to Friday and instead of dwelling on the challenges of the week I am instead choosing to celebrate the good things, because it is always a mood booster.  So here is a Things I Am Grateful For Friday post!

We had a huge hail storm on Monday.  But I'm grateful that our plants seemed to have survived, my flowers took a little hit, but all of our tomato plants are fine and thriving and our herbs have perked right back up again.  Nate's new car did get a little dinged, but we have coverage for that with the lease so hopefully that will protect us if it comes to that.

We had a rare Sunday night bonfire last weekend.  Normally we try to do our fires on Fridays or Saturdays because it feels like more of a weekend treat, but we decided to close out our weekend with one instead.  And it was peaceful and wonderful.  I love nothing more than sitting outside with Nate and just relaxing together.

I found four style challenges on Instagram this month.  Pinned It Spinned It is back and there are several others I'm following as well.  I love getting inspiration this way and I'm excited to see what I can do with my closet this month!

This little munchkin has been giving me a run for my money this week, especially at dinner time, seems he's decided that dinner is his least favorite meal of the day.  He's definitely starting to show his toddlerness at times, but these smiles make up for those moments ten fold.  And our bedtime routine is one of my favorite times of the day, we read stories and then he sweetly asks for a "song" and then we sing while we cuddle.  I'm grateful for all of these moments - the sweet ones and the struggles, because I know these days will pass too quickly, so I am trying to eat them all up as much as I can.

And finally I'm grateful for a day off today at the last minute.  I sent Ollie to my parents for the morning so I can get a few things done at home and then I'm going to bring him home for his nap and then when he gets up I'll get some extra time with him to play and be together and I'm quite grateful for that as well!

I hope everyone has a great weekend - be safe and have fun if you're celebrating the July 4th holiday!!
