I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few things I'm loving at the moment...

Loving my precious birthday girl in her new fluffy hat (and totally love that cheeky laugh!)...

Loving my beautiful Nan (here holding her newest great grandchild)...

Loving the Paw Print cake... we used oreo cookies and brown pebbles to make the paw prints.  We also learned that if you put brown pebbles on a cake and leave the cake in the fridge overnight, the brown pebbles will fade and go green...

Loving my hard working 'animal whispering' husband...

Loving that the season of hoodies is here!!  I love winter!!

Loving beautiful and moving stories like this and this!

Also, just wanted to let you all know that "Thing's I'm Loving" as a regular weekly linky is finally coming to an end.  I have LOVED sharing the things I'm loving space with you (and I know you have too) and I will still continue to do my own random loving posts when I can, but not as a regular Friday linky.  Thanks for being a part of this thankfulness journey, and I hope you will continue to look for the things in life to be thankful for, even if they are simple. xoxo

Here's how you can join in....
Link up below with your blog post telling us what thing/s you are loving, and don't forget to link back to here in your post (or use this button below) and visit the others who have joined in too. Linky open until Sunday!!

  1. I love winter too. Thanks for doing the Things I'm Loving Linky. I've enjoyed doing with you some of the time. It's been good to stop and see the positive and beautiful things in life and be thankful. I've appreciated it. Cx

  2. Love that fluffy hat and the cheeky smile! All good things must come to an end. Well it's been an amazing journey and I don't think I have missed a single week of sharing in it with you! Thanks PJ for the amazing encouragement to find the love amongst the everyday..you have inspired us all xx

  3. Love the cake! And while I don't like being cold, I do like having the excuse to wrap up in lots of scrummy layers!
    Thank you for the opportunity to join up with such a fab linky - it's been great to be so intentional about finding things to love each week, and I've enjoyed sharing in other people's joys xx

    Ahhh kristy I hope this doesn't see the phasing out of bloggy PJ???
    This is the best linky ever!
    Do you want to pass it on to someone else to host???
    It's such a great roundup of the week.
    I'm gutted. And now i have to go back and add one more thing to my "suckage" list... things I'm loving linky is ending... waaaaaaahhhhhh!!!! :(

    Am going to miss your weekly link "Things you love" it has been one of the highlights of our Friday; still all things have a season and this one for you has finished, how sad, still we will keep looking of your blog daily, you are such an inspiration. Luv U heaps x x x

  8. Aw, what a great cheeky grin and an amazing hat!
    So sad to hear that this will be the end of your wee linky. I've loved taking part and visiting the other participants to see what they have been loving. Thanks for giving us this place to share. I will continue to look forward to your Loving posts with or without the linky.

  9. That cake was awesome!! I meant to post a comment on the birthday post - a big happy birthday to your new 8 year old!! Amazing how quickly they grow up - and funny that we've watched her grow up since you started here! I love hoodies too. LOVE. So cozy!!
    And sad to hear this is winding up - though I rarely link up with it, it's a great way to remind everyone to look for the small things in each week that are great things!x

    One of my favourite Friday rituals has been to take some time for myself and read through everybody's Things I'm Loving. Nice to focus on positive things and it's often been a real pick-me-up. Thanks for all the wonderful posts and for hosting.

  11. Awww, your Friday 'loving' posts have been so much fun & I'll look forward to periodic ones when the fancy takes you. Your daughter's hat is adorable, that photo of your Nan holding her dear great grandchild is heart melting and go you with your hoodie - looking fabulous! Have a great weekend :)
