This year I decided I wanted to find 
the importance in the mundane,
the beauty in the everyday, 
the little things that I couldn't live with out. 

Basically, I want to be truly thankful for my life and every aspect that I've been blessed with. 
I decided to do a post on Instragram each day all under the hashtag #thankful. 

Sometimes I feel kinda cheesy but doing this really makes me think throughout the entire day about all the things that I'm thankful for. It has been more of a challenge choosing just one each day. 

I think it would be great if we could start this every week. 
How about y'all start finding what YOUR thankful for tag me @gracielathrop and use the hashtag #KTAthankful. 
Then every Friday we can do a week recap right here on the blog to share with everyone!! 

Here is a recap of my #thankful challenge. 

DAY 1: Thankful for a handy and crafty husband. 

DAY 2: Thankful for soft tissues and Chapstick

DAY 3: Thankful for breakfast in bed :)
