thankful (sixteen)

on this sixteenth day of the month, i am thankful for:

+++ seeing malena in the morning, watching cartoons, and hanging out for a little bit before pre-school
+++ finishing a 3 mile run just before the sky opened and the rain started to dump
+++ not being in the office - and nothing critical happening so that i could spend more of my day taking care of things in my home life than my work life
+++ knocking out a ton of errands in a short amount of time
+++ my sister and niece making it over safely from pullman
+++ splitting a bottle of wine (ok, maybe a little more than one) with my sister
+++ laughter filling our house all evening long
+++ our house being filled with people i love
+++ malena being so excited about her birthday party tomorrow - imagine what it would be like if we were always as excited about our birthdays as we are when we are kids
+++ our house smelling like cookies
+++ eating a heath toffee/peanut butter/chocolate chip cookie that has just come out of the oven
+++ finding the perfect napkins to send to my mom to continue my yearly tradition of sending her funny ones that she can use at christmas when she hosts our entire (large) family
+++ friends that i love very, very much

happy saturday everybody. i will be celebrating barrett's birthday and malena turning 4. a day full of fun and celebration in the hanson house. love that.
