"Be Thankful" Tuesday

If you're a long-time Whimsy Is Forever you might remember that back in the day I used to do a lot of these "Be Thankful" posts, and I think it's time to bring it back! I was about to hit publish on a different post, and then I realised I had already hit publish on 499 posts. So for my 500th post on Whimsy Is Forever, here are some of the things I'm thankful for this week:

All the beautiful friends I have made through blogging! You ladies inspire me each and every day!

Sunny weekends and new leaves on the Stellenbosch oaks that hint of Spring

The awesomeness that is reconnecting with old friends

Getting back into my writing and feeling inspired

Finally starting to feel better after a yucky case of flu!

Finding the perfect new handbag after months of hunting

The fact that I recently passed my driver's license (finally!)

The wonder that is a new, well-fitted bra

Post-exercise endorphins

Rediscovering how awesome short nails are

Reorganising my desk at work and starting the week off with a clean slate

What are you thankful for this week? (Big or small)


  1. Congrats on your 500th post! :) Here's to many more x

    P.S That daffodil is stunning. My absolute fave flower :)

    1. Thanks Chicara :) Aren't daffodils just the best?! Perfect symbol of Spring!

  2. Hi Laura, congrats on getting your license...it was the one thing that stood out. I also waited a looooong time before starting to make work of it. (Had a learners 3 times and the 3rd almost expired too!). Did you past first time? Good luck with the PhD, Chemistry is awesome!


Thank you for taking the time to visit Whimsy Is Forever! I love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment.
