I was inspired by Christie on So what? Now What? (link post here ) I enjoy reading other people’s gratitude lists as they make me more aware of things I too am grateful for. Christie always uses photos in her gratitude posts and I’ve said I would use more imbedded photos now that I learned how to do that on the blog (with the kitchen refresh). Of course, I am not a prolific photo taker, so I looked for gratitude photos across the whole fall season.
Here are a few things I am grateful for this Fall:
Finding my Tribe and Doing New Things – After a summer where I felt like I didn’t belong, I intentionally began planning activities and then inviting folks to join in. Sometimes, that means it’s just hubby and me or even a solo activity, but that is OK. I am grateful for the fun things this fall like going on a mural tour, checking out local museums, attending the sand-sculpture festival, and a night of axe throwing.
Sunrises – I am grateful for the water view from our Florida home. I don’t think I will ever get tired of it, from morning till evening, in all types of weather. But sunrises are the absolute best.
Palm Trees – I’ve mentioned my desire to learn more about plants in this Central Florida coastal environment. I am learning and am grateful for all the folks (nursery workers, arborist, lecturers, friends) who are helping me in that learning. And also grateful for an existing landscape that has over 70 palm trees with 11 variants and a beautiful lawn.
Crafting Friends – I am grateful for friends who have engaged with me in crafting. I’ve had crafts on my to-do list for a long time, and have finally started doing them with their encouragement and engagement. Check out the beaded plant stakes (holiday presents) and Christmas wreath, which is now hung on front of house.
I really need to be taking more photos, as that will not only increase my photography skills but give me more fodder for future gratitude posts!
What are you grateful for this fall?
