10 things i'm grateful for

1. Gelato on a scorching day. Oh spring, where did you go??

2. Our new balcony garden. We are all thrilled about it! There is something about tending to nature that calms the soul.

3. I recently started using this perfume, which promises subtle shifts in mood (yay flower essences!) and I have to say I have been feeling much happier and calmer these days.

4. I finally got a pair of these shoes, and they are insanely comfortable. Considering the fact that we walk somewhere every single day, it makes a world of difference.

5. The infinite uses of soap nuts--laundry detergent, body soap, shampoo, house cleaner...Amazing stuff.

6. My high powered blender makes a mean green smoothie. We've been making a lot of those lately, most of which gets immediately consumed by Julie, the smoothie fiend.

7. The joy of eating a freshly steamed artichoke, dipped in garlic aioli

8. Shea butter. This is the one and only thing that has helped Julie with her eczema. It also comes in all sorts of yummy (natural) scents as well, for those who have an aversion to the unscented version.

9. A high chair that can be wiped down vs needing to be thrown in the wash. That gets gnarly fast, so we made the switch and couldn't be more pleased.

10. There is this park nearby that we just can't get enough of. There are horses, rolling hills, and it is never crowded. Some places just have a special kind of energy...
