Thankful Thursday: Mom, Birds & Coffee House

It’s that time again, time for Thankful Thursday! For those wondering what that is, in a nutshell, it’s a blog post all about the things I’ve currently thankful for. At the end, you are more than welcome to comment with what you’re thankful for this week. I’d love to hear about them.

I’m thankful for my mom. This past Sunday was Mother’s Day as you know, and I made my mom a cake from scratch. My first cake that I’ve ever made and it was for mom. It came out good (a little flatter than I would have liked, which is what happens when you don’t have a hand mixer), and mom loved it. It was so great spending the day with her. She’s one of the most important people in my life and I love her like crazy.

Freekeh. It not only has a cool name, but it's great stuff

I’m thankful for Freekeh. It’s an awesome grain like rice or quinoa that I’ve been introduced to. In a word, it’s awesome. It’s healthy and good for you and only 140 calories per serving. Good stuff all around! Have I mentioned lately that I’ve been loving cooking and trying out new recipes and such?

I’m thankful for The Avengers. Okay, so this may sound silly, but really it’s just a geek thing. I was so inspired by this movie and enjoyed it so much that I feel like inspiration has entered my life (see my blog post on Inspiration). Or, it has re-entered my life because I’ve felt this inspired and motivated before, it’s just been far too long.

Asheville-like yet it's in Orlando

I’m thankful for Austin’s Coffee. I had been passing by this little “hole in the wall” coffee place since I moved into my new place in April and finally stopped to check it out. Wow, is it awesome. Really takes me back to Asheville (my all-time favorite place). If I can’t have Asheville right now, this is definitely going to become a place I can come to in the meanwhile. It’s vegan friendly too which makes it even better.

I’m thankful for my birds. I love hearing them sing every morning while I get ready for work and seeing them when I get home at night from work. They are so sweet and the loves of my life (they are like my kids). They can make me smile even when I’ve had a so-so day.

Indy, one of the joys of my life.

What about you? What are you thankful for this week?

  1. Yes, Avengers! I may have seen it 3 times already!

    Where is Austins? I’m always looking for low key coffee shops in Central Florida to go study, or blog, without distractions.
