2016 Gratitude Jar

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, friends!

Our friends gave us a Gratitude Jar at the beginning of 2016 as a way to remember the little things we are thankful for throughout the year. I figured the eve of Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to share what we’ve accumulated throughout the year. FYI: Some didn’t include dates on them, so I just listed them at the bottom of the list.

Question of the Day

What “little thing” are you thankful for? 





  1. Just Farts – LOL! What a cute idea, I should do this in 2017! I’m grateful for hot showers, especially after having to take a luke warm shower and realizing after the fact that my toddler had left the hot water running in our other bathroom sink for over 2 hours…whomp whomp! #mommyoftheyear
