I always find the CUTEST and comfiest sweatshirts for each season/holiday at ILY Couture. Typically, I go for ones that I can wear all the time and not just around that holiday. This “lucky” sweatshirt is so cozy and works perfect for March and St.Patrick’s but isn’t to “theme-y” to not whip out the rest of the year too. 😉
I’ve never considered myself a “lucky” person, as in I’ve never really won anything or anything like that. BUT in all actuality I am extremely lucky and with St.Patrick’s Day coming up I thought it would be fitting to take a step back and share some of the reasons I know consider myself a very lucky lady.
If you have been following me for awhile, you know that one of the things I truly believe in is the power of positive thinking. I think if you remain in the positive and put out positive energy to others than that will come back to you. One of the staples of this is that you have gratitude for the things you already have. Life gets so hectic and it’s so easy (I do it all the time) to just think of everything that’s going wrong or all of the things that you don’t havc that you lose sight of all the great things that you already do.
This would be a great tradition to start for St.Patrick’s day. Each family member could write out some reasons they are “lucky”/thankful. It’s a great lesson to teach kids!
So… here it is. 10 Reasons I consider myself “lucky”
10. I live in a city I truly love! I’ve lived in several places, but Nashville just feels like home to me. There is a creative energy in the air here and always new restaurants and spots to try. The people are friendly, and the food is great. What more can you want in a place you call home?!
9. I have a roof over my head and a pair of wheels to get me around. Simple…but so many don’t! Trey and I bought our house just 2 years ago and it was brand new. Lately, with the new baby coming all I can think is we need bigger & better. It’s good for me to take a step back and be so thankful we have what we do!
8. I’m lucky enough to stay at home with Georgie and soon to be baby 2. It is by far the hardest job I’ve ever had, but also the single most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I’m fortunate enough that it was an option for me to do so, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
7. With that being said, I am so lucky that we found a great nanny that comes once a week so I have time to work on the blog and have some “me” time. It’s a new found thing for me, and I’m cherishing it! When you take care of yourself (even if it’s just a few hours a week) you are more apt to take care of your kids and husband.
6. We have a great extended family who is always there for one another. (On both sides.)
5. That I’m able to do blogging! It’s a side gig that allows me to still be creative, and dive into the fashion world. It has also introduced me to some amazing women who have turned into even more amazing friends.
4. That I’m able to travel with Trey frequently. I’ve always been a bit of a nomad. Staying in one place to long makes me bored. (Quickly) We have gone on some great trips and shown Georgie so many things in his short little life too!
3. For great friends! From the lifelong ones to the new ones!
2. My health. It’s something that when you have it, you take it for granted. When you sit back and think, it’s one of the most important things we have!
