  1. Julie, I always love your quotes on gratitude! I’m thankful for a healthy family, a full pantry, and a warm home. 😀

  2. Hi Julie,

    Followed you here from Brenda’s blog. Congrats on being a semi-finalist and best of luck!

  3. Wonderful week! 😀

    We had a terrific weekend ~ Sannibel Island on Friday and Beach to Bay Eco Day on Historic Bridge Street pier today.

    Hope you get more good news from the Blogfest tomorrow.

  4. Congrats on being a semi-finalist, that’s great. Your week sounds super, and how lovely that you can look back and see all these nice things on your blog. I had the best restaurant meal ever on Saturday, I’m still swooning about it. So I’m grateful for good food too 🙂

  5. Amanda, Nancy and Catherine – thanks for the well-wishes on the contest. So far no winners posted, but I am happy either way. I got work done on my WIP, which needed to happen regardless. Just getting to the semi-finals was a much-needed boost.

    Catherine – what did you eat? I love food too!

  6. the hubs is coming home on Sunday. We’ve only seen him for a week since January.

    • Wow – that is something to be grateful for! Makes me grateful that even though my husband travels a lot, definitely not for that long of a stretch.

  7. First, HUGE congrats on being a finalist! Yay!

    I’m grateful for:

    1. That this pregnancy is almost over
    2. My (sorta) clean house
    3. time with my kids
    4. That my book has released.

  8. Gratitude is good. It’s always nice to stop and remember all the great little things that make life so awesome. 🙂

    -Movie night w/the fam
    -The Farming Game and kids who will play it with me
    -Books, lovely captivating books

  9. I love that you do this. I keep meaning to post about gratitude, but somehow I never find the time.

    Among other things you’ve inspired me to do: start keeping champagne corks to celebrate successes.

    And family game night is the very best! 🙂
