Introducing....Thoughtful Tuesday

I once had the grandiose idea that I would start a blog and post something each day that I was thankful for, or for something I had done to "pay it forward" that day.

365 days is a lot. I admire those people who blog about something each and every day--and I so wish I had been more diligent about writing in my paper journal growing up. But hindsight is 20/20, right? So instead of saying "I wish I should have, or I wish I could have...." I am just doing something. 

Each Tuesday, I'm going to tell you about something I am either: a) thankful for, b) something I witnessed that was an act of kindness, or c) something I did to "pay it forward"

I'd love it if you'd join me. One day a week. One thing. It can take 15 seconds or 4 hours. Don't you feel better when you are able to notice the pretty things in life? Leave a comment here, or share it in your own space, and enjoy being thoughtful...in more ways than one!


This Tuesday: Thankful.

Thankful that I started blogging. What I thought was a simple decision three years ago, has been such a monumental "thing" in my life. To be able to look back on thoughts, re-read supportive comments, not to mention the ah-ma-zing friendships that have developed because of it. And I love the fact that this blog will always be the "pair" of jeans that will always be the perfect fit.


  1. Love the idea! Count me in. (Wow, between Perfect Moments and Thankfulness--where will I get my anger out?!) :-)
