Three {3} Things

I have a thing for the number 3.  It's not my favorite number (my heart belongs to number 7 for no good reason) but 3 has always been a part of the important things in my (the trinity), addresses, dates, and now the number of kids I have.  Whenever the number 3 shows up, I know it's God letting me know I'm on the right track.  

I thought it would be fun to also incorporate the number 3 into my blog by occasionally posting three things I'm currently loving.  

So...drumroll are the first Three {3} Things I'm loving:

{Magazines} I love them more than I can describe.  This is the stack I'm working through this weekend.  I use them for inspiration and escape.  So fun.
{School/Office Supplies}  I am a list maker and organizer by nature and I love pretty paper to work with while I write out my to do's or dream.  I am currently loving these beauties from Target.

{Essie Nail Polish}  I used to be an OPI girl, but Essie lasts so much longer.  I think I'll rock "The Girls are Out" this week.
Do you have an important number in your life?  What are you currently loving?

While I was checking Instagram on New Year's Eve, I saw the hashtag #olw.  I was intrigued and wanted to know what it stood for. In case you're not in the loop like me, it means "one little word".  The idea is to choose a theme word for 2014 rather than resolutions. Once I figured out what it meant, I was in!  I love the new year and the fresh start it brings. And having a focus for my fresh start just makes my heart happy.

So, my #olw for 2014 is GRATEFUL. I have so many blessings in my life but I am not always good about recognizing them. I am challenging myself to post a picture on Instagram each day of 2014 of something I am grateful for. I'm excited to pursue gratitude this year and have a visual reminder of all I have been blessed with.  Follow me at deannazehr to see the posts.

What is your #olw for 2014?
