Have you heard of the 365 Grateful movement? I am sort of in love with the notion. Basically – you have to stop once a day and take a picture of something that you feel grateful for in your life. It doesn’t have to be something huge and spectacular. I’m talking about the little things. The way your husband knows how you like your coffee, that first sip of tea, or the moment your puppy snuggles up with you at the end of the night. After all, it’s the little things that matter the most, right?

I can’t guarantee that I am going to take a picture every single day in 2014 – but I am going to try to! I thought that on January 1st I should start off with FAMILY. I am most grateful to be surrounded by love and by friendship and I had everyone take a picture today while they were at my house celebrating New Year’s Day.

If you have an Instagram, Facebook, Twitter account or even a blog — consider participating in #365Grateful this year. It will be really fun to look back 365 days from now. 🙂
