7 Simple Things I'm Grateful For

It is the season to be thankful.


Fall is a season filled with gratitude. During this season, I often find myself overlooking the things that I am thankful for. During this season, try and make it a point to have a grateful heart and find some simple things that you are thankful for.

1. Home 

Home is a place that is filled with grateful hearts. It is a place where I know that I am loved. Home is slow paced and something that I am oh so grateful for.

2. Fall weather

Living in the South, cold fall weather does not come until late October or early November. When the weather begins to drop, I always find my favorite sweaters that have been hiding out in my closet since the year before. I know it seems quite simple, but I am thankful for a morning of cold, fall weather.

3. Coffee

I simply cannot survive without drinking coffee every day. I love mornings spent sipping a hot cup of coffee. If you cannot find anything to be grateful for, make it coffee because we all know that we could not survive without it.

4. Friends 

It is so essential that you find a group of friends that love you and are supportive of you. I am so thankful for my sweet friends. Without my friends, I would be lost.

5. A warm cozy bed 

My bed is one of my favorite places to be. I simply love cuddling up under a thousand blankets. On cold rainy mornings, I am thankful for my warm cozy bed.

6. Grandparents

My grandparents are some of my favorite people on earth. A few months ago, I lost my grandfather and it made me realize how thankful I am for my grandparents.

Grandparents are filled with so much wisdom and one of my favorite things to do with them is to sit and listen to them tell my stories. Pick up the phone during this season and tell your grandparents that you love them.

7. Education 

As an early childhood educator, I realize how important education is. Without teachers or an education, you will not be able to even read this article. Go thank a teacher. You simply have no idea how much they sacrifice for you.

If you cannot find anything to be thankful for, be thankful for these seven things. It is the season of thankfulness so open your hearts and say thanks!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
