What I'm Most Grateful For This Year

What I'm Most Grateful For This Year

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you’re enjoying time and turkey (and online shopping, duh) with friends and family today! We have a few different gatherings to hit up this weekend and I’m actually working on Friday, so it’s a busy weekend—but I’m still feeling merry and bright!

2018 was a big one—and as we gather round the table, I’m most grateful for finding home.

Chris proposed one week after Thanksgiving last year. I’m an extremely indecisive person, but us together never seemed like a question. There are so many things I love about him, but the overwhelming feeling that I had found my place when we met really sticks out.

And our actual house also tops my gratitude list! Seriously, life changing. I post lots of pics of our little yellow house on my Instagram Stories, but if you’re not following along there, here’s your first peek! We’re in a first-ring suburb of Minneapolis—close to the city and restaurants we love, walking distance to a downtown with small-town charm and we both have fairly easy work commutes. The neighborhood has (relatively) big yards and big trees, and we’re in Broadway Pizza delivery range which is everything. The house isn’t perfect (we don’t have enough closet space in the master bedroom, the landscaping has to be completely overhauled…) but I love it. Having a dishwasher, garage and multiple rooms (!) feels like such a luxury—and having worked and saved for it ourselves makes us appreciate it all even more. I love having friends over for dinner (read: wine and apps), hanging out on the porch and coming home to our own space each night. Life actually feels different—better different—in a house, and I don’t take that for granted.

I wanted a pretty runner for our kitchen so badly, but this round rug fits in the space better and opens it up!
