Five Things Friday, November Joys

Hello Black Friday!

I honestly wasn’t planning to post today, but Thanksgiving weekend happened to cross pass with Five Things Friday. So, here I am. Five things Friday is one of my favorite monthly posts. Each month I share about 5 things that are bringing joy to my life. It’s a simple way to count my blessings and share what is making me smile.

Since yesterday was Thanksgiving I thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit for this months post. Today I am sharing 5 things I am thankful for, which also happen to bring joy to my life too.

Here are my November 5!


This guy. I can’t say enough about this guy, so I won’t even try. I love him to the moon and back. 

Our Girls

They may not be perfect all the time, but I feel immensely blessed in the kid department. They are sweet and helpful and mine. I adore them and I love that other people adore them too.

Friends Near and Far

I have never been the kind of girl who has a plethora of friends. I tend to have smaller circles of close friends and I like it that way. Lately I have been feeling immensely blessed by the friendships God has brought me over the past few years.

Rooted Church

It’s been nothing short of awesome to be a part of this church. To love the community, each other and God together. I am so thankful for this body of believers and that my family gets to be a part of it. 

Home Progress

After months and months of wondering if it was ever going to happen, things have really started moving on the home front. It is really exciting and a bit overwhelming too. I can’t wait to share more SOON!

So, what’s bringing you joy?
