thankful thursday: 3



It's that time of the week again...time to count our blessings, people! Here's what made my list today:

1.rain
we've been getting a ton of rain lately. and i'm thankful. only because that means: A) flowers will soon follow  B) same goes for green grass  C) it makes me way more appreciative of the sun when it finally appears. As the saying goes...you can't have a rainbow without a little rain. I'm waiting patiently (ok, some days not so patiently) for the rainbow.


2.my mac pro
i love my computer. it's a quad core mac pro and it has served me very, very well over the years. it's a huge tower. but it's fast. which is perfect for all my graphic design projects. this one is over 3 years old and going strong. i just updated to OSX Mountain Lion (roar!) yesterday, and so far so good. not really sure what all has changed. we shall see.  


3.gourmet's market
it's the yummiest sandwich shop in knoxville. just had their turkey sandwich on buttery soft, sourdough with white cheddar, crisp lettuce, juicy tomato and yellow mustard. served with their crispy parmesan chips. so good. mouth watering yet? if you're local, you have to check this place out. here's their link. oh, and they have a cute little shop attached with specialty gourmet spices and oils. oh, and there's a coffee shop too! so great.

4.endangered species chocolate
life without chocolate is no life i'd like to be a part of. to say i love chocolate would be quite the understatement. for me, the darker, the better. enter: endangered species 88% extreme dark chocolate. so smooth. so good. must have a piece (or two) everyday. love.


5.dogs (specifically ours)
i can't imagine my life without our dogs. they are so entertaining (and yes, sometimes frustrating), but more entertaining as of late. we have 2 dogs under a year. (not sure what we were thinking) and one over 12yrs. they teach me so so much. everyday is something new. and for that i'm grateful. 



What are you thankful for today?
