Thankful Thursday #245

Light in Barn
My mom had found these little light bulbs that are super cute to hang... I think they are mainly for decorations on porches or to use for camping.  They run off batteries.  So mom thought about getting them to use in the barn where the electricity doesnt reach.  With the dark winter evenings coming, my brother & Ricky set them up & man oh man... this is life changing for us!!!  I'm sure the cold will kill the batteries super fast - but man, it'll be worth it to stock up on batteries at Sam's Club or Amazon for the light!

24 Years
It feels like yesterday that I walked down the aisle... but how much life have we lived in those 24 years?  Love we've done it together.

I had white flowers for my wedding & the day before our wedding, Ricky had sent me 3 dozen white roses.... so now, every anniversary, he finds me white flowers to give me. Isnt that the cutest thing?  I think this may be one of my favorite arrangements he's had made for me. I love hydragenias so much anyways & the white roses with it - gorgeous. I love the vase its in too - hard to see in this pic, but its like that green soft color - our living room has that color touched in it - so this will be a vase I'll use in there for years to come.

Sweet traditions
I love that we have some traditions we do on our anniversary every year.  Eating at the Pie Kitchen is one of them that is SUPER SWEET to do each celebration.  How can you get mad at sitting & chowing down on some delicious sugary desserts?

Praying friends
We got some news that was pretty earth shaking & I loved that immediately, I had friends praying for us.  I believe in the power of prayer. There is something mighty about people lifting up concerns & requests to our Father!

Doctor worked in
So grateful that after a full night of worrying & no sleep, we had a doctor that worked us in to explain some things to us right when they opened.

Heat on in November
We did it- we made it all the way to November before turning on our heat.  We typically like to make it till October so I'm really happy we didnt have to turn it on till November 1st.

One Hour extra sleep
I loathe - DESPISE - Daylight Savings Time... but I'm always fighting to find something always to be thankful for... so I'll be thankful for that one hour extra sleep. Never mind that it will mess me up all week long adjusting to the dark & sleep change... but YES, for one day, I'll be glad for that extra hour sleep.

Tell me something good about your week!

  5. Happy anniversary!!! That is awesome - I am so happy for both of you!!! I love any tradition that deals with sugar!!!! Thanks for hosting!

  6. What a lovely tradition to give you white flowers ever year for your anniversary. Such a romantic guy! Yes, it is a blessing to have praying friends that you can call on whenever you have a need. My friend, Julia, is that for me. She and I have been praying together since 1996! We don't live near one another, so we pray over the phone every single week. However, if something comes up between Fridays, she is as close as a text or a phone call. I'm glad you have a praying friend in your life too!


  7. Happy anniversary to you and Ricky! I LOVE the flower arrangement he sent. Gorgeous. And I love your traditions. They just make it extra special. I've never heard of Pie Kitchen but it feels like something that should be in my life. :D

  8. What an amazing husband you have! Those white flowers (and the tradition behind them) are just beautiful. I love that you have these Thankful posts, and yes, I know I say it every time, but they bring me joy vicariously.
