Ten Weeks of Thanks: Week 8 Inventions

Hello, hello, loves!

I hope you’re having a wonderful week!

Today’s topic is inventions!

The first thing I’m grateful for, ELECTRICITY. Dudes, I hate when the lights go out. I literally don’t know what to do with myself for the first hour. Don’t get me wrong, I like to be unplugged and have (believe it or not) spent days without my phone. It was awesome, but I love having lights and internet and all of that wonderful stuff.

The next thing I’m grateful for is the printing press. Ahh the printing press. The thing that produces my favorite things. BOOKS. I would talk about how awful life would be without books, but I can’t imagine it, and therefore, have no idea of where I would even begin to describe the awfulness. So I’m just going to be happy I don’t have to worry about that. (:

Next, I’m super grateful for those little socks you wear with flats. Didn’t see that one comin, did ya?! GUYS. Those things save my life! And they’ve been around for awhile but I was just kind of like “meh.” But apparently every one and their great aunt knew about the gloriousness of them and decided to not tell me! Let me illustrate my love for them to you.

Me before tiny socks: “Bah, flats aren’t even comfortable! They’re just sweaty and cut my heel!”

Me after tiny socks: “I need to buy more flats, I freakin love those things.”

See? They have a special place in my heart.

And finally, I’m grateful for snail mail. It makes my whole day. I always go out and check it in the afternoon and if nothing is there I go back in a couple of hours, because surely there’s an ad, a saver, SOMETHING. (: It’s just a fun thing. And lately I’m more grateful than ever, because it lets me send love and support to the people that are far away. And that’s awesome.

Next week’s topic is FOOD. Oh you can bet I’m gonna be all over that. (:

What deliciousnesses (is that a word?) are you grateful for, why?



  1. Love this post! I love books – like actual print on paper. I have an iPad but I don’t read books on it. I still feel the need to buy them and probably always will. :-)

    • Thank you!! And I feel you- I have a nook but anything on there i read that’s been awesome, I just want the hard copy of anyway! haha

  2. I love this post!! I love snail mail too. It drives my husband nuts how often I check the mail. We’re in an apartment, so it’s a little walk to the mailboxes. It drives me nuts when it doesn’t get checked at all in the course of a day. There’s got to be SOMETHING in there!! :) Thanks for linking up with me!

    • Yeah, for the first time in my life I have a legitimate mail box in front of our house, and I go out there a few times until like 4 p.m. because maybe the mail man is just late… haha!

  3. I hear ya on the snail mail. :) I have to stop at our mailbox every day… I often catch myself stopping on Sundays KNOWING I checked yesterday and there’s no mail delivery that day. Gotta be honest… I get a little twinge of heartbreak when I open it and there’s nothing… haha.
