thankful thursday

This Thursday I am thankful for:

1) Ranier cherries. I could eat bowls and bowls of ranier cherries... seriously, I love these things. Ranier cherries are so deliciously sweet and juicy. They define summer for me...

2) Weekend visits. This weekend we have a handful of old friends coming in town. I am particularly excited about this family... Matt and Carrie are good friends from our college days and have two beautiful daughters... can't wait to see you guys :)

3) Ghirardelli chocolate chip cookie mix. This box makes the absolute best chocolate chip cookies ever... hands down. All you have to do is add a stick of butter and an egg... and wah-la, you suddenly have delicious chocolate chip cookies that taste homemade. I dare you to try them yourself... double dog dare you.
