My Weekly Gratitude

Weekly gratitude springtime buds Angela Conley

It’s easy to get lost in life sometimes. One thing that’s always helped me feel grounded and at peace is to think of everything I’m thankful for. With that in mind, I decided to try something new. Each week, I’ll post the current things I’m grateful for. Continue reading to see what’s got me feeling great this week.

Detox water. I found this recipe from Blogilates while searching for ways to alleviate the dreaded monthly bloat. (Ladies, you know what I’m talking about.)

I made my first batch today, so I can’t speak to how well it works yet. But it’s very easy to make and tastes great. It’s also a wonderful way to add some variety to your daily water intake, if you get bored like I do.

Knife sharpeners. I love chopping food & do it just about every day, so this was a smart investment. I just love it when a knife slices vegetables easily like buttah.

My grill (and DIY grill cover!). I debated buying a larger grill, but I’m so glad I did. Now I know why so many people love to grill. I actually find it calming… especially with a glass of wine to accompany my time outdoors.

Dave Chappelle. The old man & I went to see his stand-up show in the D last night. Apparently Dave was lost in the sauce at the Thursday show, so I was a bit concerned. Thankfully, he didn’t disappoint. He even addressed his eff-up with some self-deprecating humor. We had a blast.

Happy news. Most times, watching the news is overwhelming for me. So I love it when I come across something uplifting. Stories like this helps restore my hope for humanity.

Bubble baths. A dinky apartment-sized bathtub doesn’t stop me. Bubble baths have come in handy this week as I’ve started a new strength-training routine.

Buds on trees. Spring is my absolute favorite season. I love witnessing the transformation of nature and its symbolism. I get giddy when trees start budding and blooming.

Cheaper utilities. Another sign of spring is a cheaper electric bill! We’re still working through some chilly days here in NW Ohio, but my bill was $70 cheaper this month. This time of year is that sweet spot where neither the heat nor the A/C is used much, if at all.

I look forward to writing this each week and sharing it with you! Feel free to leave a comment & share what you’re grateful for this week!
