Gratitude Week: Jordan of Oh Happy Day

Good morning, friends! I know I hinted on Friday that today was the start of a little something I’ve dubbed Gratitude Week and I’m excited to have the completely awesome Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day here to help kick things off. With Thanksgiving on Thursday the timing seemed perfect to take a few moments to slow down and reflect on the things in our lives that bring us joy. It’s so easy in the bustle of everyday life to lose sight of the things that matter most and to stop seeing the beauty in the little things. So in an effort to spread a little love, each morning this week I’ll be joined by one of my favorite bloggers, all sharing the things they’re most grateful for this holiday season. Without further ado, I’ll let Jordan take it away…

My family. I am really thankful for my husband Paul When I fall short he is always there to pick up the slack and he is the hardest worker I know. I’m also thankful for my kids, they make me feel important.

Paris. We decided to move to Paris for a year in 2011. It really put us out of our comfort zones and was an important year for us to grow. It was scary and challenging at times but it was one of the most fulfilling things we’ve ever done. We didn’t save any money that year and had some tight months but it was worth it.

Our Apartment. We live in a teeny-tiny 500 square foot apartment in San Francisco (with a family of four!) It can feel cramped and old and has a weird shower but I feel grateful for it every day.

Our apartment is near Dolores Park and has really amazing bakeries and restaurants nearby. With kids it is harder to get out and this location makes me feel like I’m not missing out on everything.

Oh, I'd feel exactly the same. Not about Paris, but about the rest. And wow, 500 square feet is tiny - I always feel that our place (twice that size) is small for 3 + one dog. Thanks for the perspective!

Can't wait for more of these posts!
