Do you have an attitude of gratitude? I’ve found keeping the focus on the things I’m grateful for to be absolutely transformational! Hello and welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Today I’m featuring posts that highlight gratitude or things that people are grateful for.
Blog posts old and new, about anything that feeds the soul, are welcome here at Hearth and Soul. This includes – but is not limited to – family, home, recipes, decorating, crafts, DIY, travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
What Am I Grateful For?
My Gratitude Journal is full of things I am grateful for! One of them is the community we’ve created here at Hearth and Soul, and for all of you who take part and support it. Thank you! Last week I shared more about my thoughts on gratitude on the blog.
In Why We Need Thanksgiving I write about gratitude, the practice of celebrating Thanksgiving, and why I think it would be a wonderful addition to our holiday calendar in the United Kingdom.
I’m also grateful to be able to treat my family and friends to delicious baking.
If it weren’t for the clue in the name, you’d never guess that this Butternut Pecan Loaf Cake is made with squash. It’s decadently delicious and full of warm fall spices. I love it just plain, or even spread with butter, but check out the recipe to find out how to dress it up for company!
I’m also grateful for comfort food on cold days.
This Mediterranean Vegetable Orzotto is a versatile, hearty dish with all the goodness of barley and lots of fresh veggies. Like its cousin risotto, orzotto is creamy, delicious and really sticks to your ribs on cold days.
