I'm a dichotomy of blue jeans, pretty jewelry, frugalista, and Southern girl living the simple rural life. I want to live my life holistically, thoughtfully, economically, and most of all gratefully, and encourage other women to do the same.

What are You Thankful For?

What am I  thankful for this week?

The bald eagle my son and I spotted flying over and over the river yesterday afternoon.

The very first vegetables to come out of my organic garden. They only needed a sprinkling of extra virgin olive oil, some cracked pepper, and sea salt to taste great straight from the grill.

That my son doesn't mind watching Little House on the Prairie while I work on writing assignments for five straight hours.

That we have plenty of good food.

That my doggie is cozy enough in her home to sleep the afternoon away, knowing we will take care of her.

That's a sampling of what I'm thankful for, but don't be fooled. There are 1,001 other things on the list this week. I just need to go watch my shows on the DVR.

"I have learned to be satisfied with the things I have...I know how to live when I am poor, and I know how to live when I have plenty." Philippians 4:11-12.
The apostle Paul had it right.

What are you thankful for today?
