This monthly link-up is by far one of my most favorites! I always love going to Kiki's blog at the beginning of the month to find out what the topic is going to be. This month I have the wonderful opportunity to co-host The Circle with Kiki! I'm so very excited and hope you guys will join in!
Thank you again, Kiki, for this fun opportunity!
It's no surprise that I love me some Jimmy Fallon. I've been watching him for some time on Late Night and now The Tonight Show. He is such a fun comedian and seems like a lighthearted and nice person. I always enjoy starting my mornings off with breakfast, Jimmy (I DVR the show since I'm usually going to bed by then, yes, old woman alert over here), and his guests. One of the segments he does on his show is called "Thank-You Notes." A time where James, from The Roots, plays some fun music and he writes out sometimes serious, but usually always funny thank-you notes to random objects or people. Have you seen it? Don't worry, I have a clip for you. I'll wait.
Now, I may not be as funny as Jimmy, or his writers, but I can agree with one thing he has said in the past. "My goal is just to make you laugh and put a smile on your face so that you go to sleep with a smile on your face and live a longer life." Now, not that I want my posts to put you to sleep (unless you are on the opposite side of the world or just need a nap), but I do want to be able to make you laugh sometimes and put a smile on your face always! Guess what? Thank-you notes do exactly that! Who doesn't love getting some snail-mail or a surprise e-mail from a friend? It is bound to put a smile on your face. So this month, I hope you will join Kiki and myself in writing out some thank-you notes. Whether they be serious or silly, written down or in vlog form (any takers?), join us this month for The Circle and say thank-you to some of your favorite things.
Thank you Chai Tea for quickly becoming one of my favorite nightly rituals. I love your dark, bold taste, but always add a bit of honey. So sharp and so yummy.
Thank you Payless for always having great sales and BOGO. Your weekly e-mails make me want to spend all my money on cute spring shoes and sandals. I've already given in to you by buying these and this purse!
Thank you Spring for finally arriving! I'm loving your bright, blue skies and the gorgeous flowers popping up everywhere. However, I'm not liking my allergies going crazy, my car being yellow instead of red, or the severe weather you sometimes bring. Let's keep those to a minimum.
Thank you my Mission Friends class for being a bright spot in my week. You may be a rambunctious group of boys, but I love hanging out with you and teaching you!
Thank you Lent for being a time where I can focus on my Savior's ministry and learn how to model that in my own life.
Thank you Easter for being a time where I can remember the Cross and the sacrifice that was made, but also rejoice and celebrate that He is risen!
Thank you 2014 and "25" for quickly becoming one of the best and most fun years of my life. I can't wait to see what else you bring.
Thank you Needtobreathe, Rend Collective, Hillsong, and every other band I listen to for putting on great shows and creating music that becomes my daily prayers.
Thank you Pinterest and travel blogs for allowing me to visit any place in the world without leaving my bed. One day, I will see them with my own eyes.
Thank you Green Smoothies for actually being delicious and giving me energy again.
Thank you friend for sending me random texts and e-mails letting me know that I've been on your heart and that you have been praying for me. The encouragement you give me is always overwhelming!
Who are you going to say "thank-you" to this month?
Update: My site is being weird and not allowing the link-up to show up on my site. I'm working on fixing this ASAP! To make sure your post actually gets linked up, visit Kiki's blog and link up there! Sorry for this inconvenience! Hopefully it will be worked out soon!
