Thankful Fridays: An Amazing Website and a Cute Little Fox.

Sometimes on Fridays, I can't wait to write about what I'm thankful for. 

And then there's this week. 

I'm having a bad week and to think of five things I'm thankful for seems so tiring.  Isn't that stupid?  But that's exactly why I have Thankful Fridays.

1.  The Hunt. 


 This is one of those websites that I'm insanely confused about how I had no idea it existed until this week.  You know how you will find the perfect thing on pinterest that you must have immediately, and then you click on the link only to find it goes nowhere?

Apparently there's an entire website dedicated to tracking down those things.  People post pictures of what they want to find and other people comment if they know where to get that exact thing or something similar.  Look at mankind, helping each other out. 

2.  No matter how rough my day is, this guy is always waiting to take me on a walk. 


3.  Your comments on Tuesday's post.  I got a lot of advice on how to deal with the stress of unexpected news, most of which included wine, pizza, and praying.  Obviously I have smart blog friends.  

4.  I get to spend today making orders for you guys.  I'm making things (which I love) to pay for my book (which I love) and it's a very fulfilling process.  

5.  Things with my book are on track!  I got an email from the publisher yesterday saying we are officially at the halfway point for everything that has to be done.  What?!  So exciting!

What are you thankful for this week?

  3. The Hunt sounds smart!!! Very cool! Is that a Sheba Enu???? I lived in Japan and saw those a lot! So excited for your publisher news! I'm thankful for remembering how to care for myself first instead of last all the time! :)

  5. I think I've visited the Hunt once before and it's definitely useful. I hate when I click on a product link and it doesn't take me to the page. I need to know!

    And, like you, my dogs are always in a good mood so that definitely keeps me thankful. Happy to hear that your book is on track!

  6. The Hunt sounds delightful and that picture you used to highlight it is definitely enticing me to make it one of my bookmarks lol. I'm glad your dog can cheer you up on rough days, that's why I want one again, they are the best at doing that. And congrats on everything with your book going as planned, that's an amazing accomplishment!

  15. Congrats on getting closer with the book! That's awesome that there is a site that finds all of the dead ends on Pinterest.. It is always such a let down finding something you absolutely love and it leads nowhere!

  16. Wow I had no idea about that site...but it makes sense that something like that is needed! Kudos to whoever started that one! Your dress is lovely by the way! Excited for you about your book! Congrats!
