Thankful Thursday

Yes, we know it’s Wednesday! But, we want you to enjoy these grateful moments before the holiday.

Each week we encourage you to tune in, join the discussion and pass on your own thankful thoughts!


We are thankful for friends and family far and wide.  We are thankful for the blood relations that drive us crazy, and the urban families we have created to make us sane.

We are thankful for tables full of food, and that we are not hungry, and we can help those who are.

We are thankful for airplane travel! Seriously, even if you have to fly coach it’s so much better than being in a car for those quick trips.

We are thankful for spas! It should be easy to just find a quiet space but often it takes going to a spa to really help you check out and tune in.

We are thankful for partners in crime! We couldn’t do this blog without the help of the other. LL has a few partners in crime to make retreat magic happen and Clare has her partners in crime that make NY awesome. Whose your partner in crime?

We are thankful for roasted fall veggies. Aside from that fact that they taste amazing their colors rock on the dinner plate (or if you’re LL breakfast, lunch and dinner)!

We are thankful for green plants!  They make the world a cooler place–literally and figuratively!  Look around you today, look at all the greenery–or look at your lack of greenery… maybe you need to adopt a plant!

We are thankful for seasons–LL in LA doesn’t get them as much as she used to when she lived in NoCal… and Clare misses the steady summer of Cali, but LOVES watching the leaves change.  We hope that where ever you are, you are embracing the change, or the steadyness of the seasons and your life.

We are thankful for second chances–its interesting that today is National Kiss and Make Up Day and its also National Second Hand Wardrobe Day, National Banana SPLIT Day and National Whiskey Sour Day–maybe the “national board” whomever they may be know something we don’t… because they want you to give a second chance to clothes and the ones you love by sharing a banana split–all after having a Whiskey Sour?  Ok its a stretch–but to finish up our National Holiday theme this month, we thought it was interesting that four things that could be connected were crammed together all on the same calendar date.

We are thankful for knowing that love exists.  We hope you see that you are loved as much as you deserve!

We are thankful for peace.  It really takes unrest in the world to really appreciate peace.  Fingers crossed that it will resume soon.

We are thankful for cool and refreshing things that make summer more bearable: watermelon, cold adult beverages, cold beverages in general, ice cream pie… Its National Ice Cream Pie Day!  Go make one or have a slice and cool down! I’m headed to get the ingredients for this Margarita Ice Cream Pie I found on AllRecipes.com now!

We are thankful for the ability to stop.  How often do you just stop what you’re doing, not because its the end of the day, or because you have to–but because you want to?  Give yourself time.  It is the greatest gift–even if its only 10 minutes.  Stop, and take a moment, or three for yourself today!

We are thankful for fast connection.  It is so easy to talk to people these days–remember 20 years ago when we just had land lines and the internet was just starting to go public?  And now you can talk to anyone or look for anything instantly.  Yes, it has trained us to need things more instantaneously, but it is a lovely thing to be able to connect with so many, so easily.  Today is National Presidential Joke Day AND National Sons and Daughters Day–maybe you should take this as a sign to reach out and share a joke with a friend (so many Trump jokes pop into my brain), or reach out to a son, daughter, or someone who is a son or a daughter!

We are thankful for fireworks!  Both the actual ones, and the ones you feel in your tummy and see over your head when magical things are happening to you!

We are thankful for summer and weather that makes you want to get out side and commune with nature and each other!

Be safe this weekend #happy4th to our worldwide friends, and #happyIndependenceDay to our American friends!

SCREEEEEEEEEECH!!!!  Ok,…. its Clare and I’m taking over since its my birthday.  (We will get back to our Thankful Thursday next week!!)

I just read The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer, and I’m sure you’ll be hearing me cite it in my blogs to come… anyhoooo…. For my birthday, I’m asking YOU to do a couple of things–yesterday, I opened a door for a stranger.  Then not 15 minutes later someone opened a door for me.  Then down the block, I opened the door for a different stranger…and then a few minutes later, someone opened another door for me… and so on and so forth… ALL of this kindness and chivalry just made me feel SO AMAZING AND AWESOME!!!  Anyway…

I would LOVE IT if you would give back to the world and do a stranger a service, and spread the love. 

Open a door for someone (or many someones) today, and post it all over social media, or blog and reblog that its #openadoorday and #liveclarelesley Suggest to all your social media buddies that they should open the door for a stranger–literally or figuratively!  Spread the love!!  xoxo

We are thankful for YOU!  Yeah, its cheezy, but without you readers, we would just be two gals and a bunch of blog posts!  So thank you for continually visiting us!

We are also thankful that we live in a world where two women can write their ideas and share them freely!
