Thankful Challenge + The 1st of Fall Decor

 Pillow cover c/o Dear Lillie. I just adore this shop :) Be sure to get pick a pillow cover up for the holiday season! There are so many lovely ones to choose from.
This adorable pillow is the first of our Fall decor. But really, it should be out all year round to remind us to give thanks each and every day! As you know, I'm keeping a list of 1000 things I'm thankful for (inspired by Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts) and sometimes I list a few of them here. Here are a few things I'm thankful for as of lately:

A new beginning just around the corner, with lots of opportunity. 
That no matter what, God is in control. Of our world, our safety, our politics, our hearts.
Cute new flats for Fall.
Creative minds that inspire and challenge continually. 
Trips to the Flower Mart in San Francisco with Cristin-- learning about design from her is something I'm always thankful for. 
Baskin Robins ice cream :)
The very rare minutes of the day when our puppy is sleeping and calm. 
My parents allowing me to pursue what I'm truly passionate about. And further, they show excitement about my future! 
The promise of Isaiah 23:3-4
A once broken heart that is mending a little more each day. I'm grateful for the healing, the encouragement and friends who have poured out their love in my life.
A pillow that reminds us to give thanks. Every day. 
The arrival of Autumn!
