especially grateful for [husband & wife ed.]

last night my husband and i wrote an "Especially Grateful For" list....together! we had such a wonderful weekend, and Aaron's willingness to write this list with me was just icing on the cake! this is the first time we have made one of these lists together, but hopefully not the last. <3

today WE are especially grateful for.....
1. singing this song in church yesterday.
2. Aaron being home all last week [he's been traveling a lot for work lately.]
3. going to the temple with friends on friday and enjoying a delicious dinner after.
4. "all the great meals my wife made me this week." **
5. our lazy saturday morning--sleeping in, cuddling, and reading together in bed.
6. the vitamix.
7. our ice cream run on saturday night to get some baskin-robbins pralines & cream [our favorite].
8. the rain we've been having lately. finally feels like fall!
9. long walks and good conversation on a chilly sunday evening.
10. and most importantly....each other!!

**exact quote by my husband! we are trying to eat more dinners at home [for both the health and financial benefits] and i am proud to say that we have only gone out to eat twice in the past 2 weeks. baby steps. :)


  1. We are grateful for you guys and our temple trip too!
    And we need to follow your lead and eat out less often! (even though I think that's going to be forced upon us with my paycheck gone!)

    Ps. Still jealous of the vitamix!

  2. You two are so gorgeous! What a lovely idea, especially to write it together.

  3. lovely things to be grateful for.

  4. I love this idea and the fact that you spent time together doing it.

    I am really grateful for my husband at the moment so maybe I will copy your idea and write a list with him...that is as long as you don't mind.

  5. aw! I love this. so cute that you made a list together!
