Let's Give Thanks (all year long)

In my attempts to be more grateful all year long, not just in November, I will post 3 things I'm grateful for every week.  I may miss a few here and there because life can be really exciting, but I'm going to try and stay consistent with this one.

This week I am grateful for:

- Oranges! They are so delicious.  My favorite is the Cara Cara orange, which I haven't seen in the grocery store yet, but hopefully soon.  Sometimes the chore of peeling the orange can get in the way of enjoying the orange.  I have been cutting them into quarters with a sharp knife and peeling each quarter on it's own.  It seems to work better and then I eat more oranges.  Hooray!

- Christmas Lights! They just make my day.  I love how they sparkle and glisten and figuratively (and literally) brighten any room. Pair Christmas lights with Christmas music and some hot chocolate and now you are having a good time. That's basically what I do every night, sometimes switching the hot chocolate out for popcorn depending on how cold I am. 

- Online Shopping! It really just simplifies life.  I love how I don't have to spend hours running around in the cold trying to find the perfect gift.  I can find them online and take advantage of a sale or some coupon codes to get a good deal and then send it on it's way.  I do like to get out in the shopping frenzy for a few small things though.  It can be quite entertaining.

What are you grateful for this week?
