Today I am grateful for:

To have the means to allow me to be on vacation.

Vacationing alone. I’m mindful, present, content and alive!

Delicious french toast and absurd amounts of coffee, encouraged by my super attentive server.

Jazz during brunch.

The cleanliness of Raleigh, even after yesterday’s St. Paddy’s day madness.

How sweet and clean rain smells here.

That even though I’m 419 miles away from home that all the people here seem so familiar.

Doing things just because I can: day drinking, reading for hours in parks, spending way too much time In museums and having lazy mornings.

Always feeling supported and loved by my friends and family.

Knowing that people are looking forward to my return.
