grateful: week 52.

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)  i have been doing weekly grateful posts for an entire year now.  i really cannot believe how fast it's gone!  i'm thinking of tweaking it a little going forward, so stay-tuned for that next week!
2)  the opportunity to see neil gaiman in person as part of the one book, one chicago program, and listen to him read from my favorite book of his (and a favorite, period).  he is just the coolest

3)  a lovely weekend that concluded with the premiere of game of thrones on hbo.  the bf and i recently became huge fans of the book series, so to say we were excited for the tv show is quite the understatement (see pics 3 & 4 below for proof!)

 {baking lemon cakes - a game of thrones favorite!}

  1. wow its amazing you have been doing this for a whole year :) those tulips look stunning xx

  2. such a good concept :) it's a way to always look at the bright side!


  3. That lemon cake looks simply divine. I may have to find it to make for myself :)

  4. Isn't it nutty how quickly a year flies by? Fresh tulips and juicy grapefruit definitely scream spring. So glad it's finally here!

  5. Lucky girl, getting to see/hear Neil Gaiman! I remember he was at the Printer's Row Lit Fest one year when I went, but I missed him. I love all the cultural goings-on in Chicago!

    And I was going to watch Game of Thrones but I haven't read the books yet so I worried I'd be completely clueless. I love the cast, though!

  6. one year of these posts? that's awesome! i've really been inspired by your monday grateful posts, maybe it's time to start doing my own...

    also, that dance post on one sydney roof is honestly to die for! thank you so much for sharing :)

    have a lovely and inspiring week!

  7. i really appreciate these responses, i never know quite how ppl feel about grateful posts, and this feedback was really helpful. next week's tweaks will have a simliar concept, just with - well- tweaks! haha


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