grateful: week 19.

inspired by my reading of the happiness project by gretchen rubin, i am instituting monday "gratitude" posts (read here for more detail), where i will list "3 things i'm grateful for" from the previous week.

the 3 things i'm grateful for this week are:

1) not a temptation in sight on the old self-imposed august clothes shopping hiatus!  this is the end of week 4, which means, i made it!  but, i have decided to extend through september.  here we go again...

2) i survived a hellish work week that left me drained and frazzled.  although i had to work through the weekend to get everything done, i can say i'm grateful that i was still able to catch-up on sleep and re-energize for this coming week.

3) i finally had the time to make the new blog header (and button!  see below.) i've wanted to do for several months!  it's a collection of many of the things that love and inspire me and this blog.  if you've been reading a spot of whimsy for awhile, i have a feeling you'll recognize most of them!  i wanted the header to reflect more about all the things this blog entails.  hope you like.

here's to another grateful week.

  1. Nice work, Diane--on the not shopping, the working, and the blog! Sadly, I was unable to make it through the month without shopping. The college roommates got together to go shopping on Michigan Ave this weekend and I could not resist making some purchases. I may try to forego shopping this month, too, because I have learned that it seems to be all or nothing for me. If I look, I buy, so I just can't even look. Hope this week goes better for you!


thanks so much for the note! i love reading your comments. xo. di.
