30 days of Thanks x3 {Fall Foliage,Small Group, & Phi Beta Chi}

Hey y'all,

So I am doing one large post of 30 Days of Thanks since Monday and Tuesday went by so quickly! I am so grateful for Ryann to have created this idea since I try really hard to be grateful especially in prayer and sometimes when you get started your list goes on forever.

Day 4
Fall Foliage

I guess this could be called being thankful for living in North Carolina but I am thankful for the change in season. Fall is a time of beauty and I love strolling around campus or taking a drive to see all the changing leaves. The colors that occur naturally are gorgeous and a reminder that while the plants are slowly dying off they produce some of the most beautiful moments. I know that sounds really weird but I would be so sad if I lived in a place where there was no distinct change in the leaves. I mean who doesn't love tossing leaves in the air or jumping on a pile of them, or just crunching leaves under your riding boots. 

Day 5
Small Group

I am part of a women's small group through my church and I love all the girls. While I loved my previous group in the Spring that included one of my sorority sisters this group is a multi-generational group which includes a lot of various perspectives. Sometimes on Mondays after work I would rather put on my pjs but every time I leave small group I feel so refreshed and blessed and know that it is a great place of renewal and learning. Plus, we are having a movie night with Carolina style BBQ next week so really what is not to love?

Day 6
Phi Beta Chi

There really are not enough words to describe how thankful I am for PBX over the past 5+ years. I have grown so much in my faith and gained hundreds of friends I call my sisters. I am blessed to be one of the advisers this year so to continue to watch my chapter grow is one of the best feelings. I can say that PBX helped me to my current job through teaching me that I love service as well as providing me with the opportunity to take on two leadership roles. I am thankful for all those I have met through PBX and all the sisters that are forever friends especially the ones that have made the transition to the real world smoothly! 

What are you thankful for?


  1. I am SO glad you are following along with the 30 days of thanks! I love reading your posts :)

  2. Awww, thank you! I wanted to do it and your posts are motivation to keep it up!

  3. I live in Tennessee and, like you, am so thankful I live in an area with 4 separate season. Fall is my favorite time of year :).


Thanks for the sweet note!
