Journal 19 | The 25 Things I’m Most Grateful For

Inspiration / Personal

A little over a year ago, I wrote up a post that listed a rather random assortment of 50 things — small moments and feelings and notions that exist between life’s bigger happenings. Things that, when considered, turn out to be pretty significant matters in themselves. I love having that list to look back on when I’m stuck in a spell of feeling sorry or sad, or when I could use a reminder that life is so much more than the things I choose to assign weight to.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I decided to model a post after that one. But instead of listing a medley of everyday things, here I’m calling out the 25 things I am most grateful for right now.

Nashville Guide 2.0

Travel

Y’ALL — I’ve been in Nashville for over a year and a half now and have done my fair share of playing hostess to plenty of out-of-town guests, so I figured it was high time I revisit the ol’ eating and drinking guide I wrote up way back in December of 2018 and update it to include my newest favs. While all of the recommendations that made the last list still hold up, tons more popped up in the last 10 or so months and they’re definitely worth sharing. Plus, I wanted to feature some of my all-time favorite activities to partake in around town, as well as some quick little neighborhood guides for those that I find myself bopping around in from time to time.

In case you ever find yourself in Music City, consider this your go-to cool-girl (or cool-guy) guide to get you through your trip. *No hokey tourist traps included*

Of all the types of love that exist out there in the world, it’s relatively easy to argue in favor of self-love.

Who wouldn’t relish spending a night in, soaking in a tub awash with lavender salts, decadent bubbles, and a bath bomb or two, all while enjoying a couple glasses of wine (or the whole bottle) all in the name of loving thyself. Or maybe your self-love practice is a little less “self-care,” and a little more like starting off each morning listing all the things you dig about yourself, or bidding farewell the things that no longer serve you.

But alas, that’s not why we’re here today.
