Grateful Heart // Summer Edition

i'm starting this {very busy} week off with a grateful heart today!

since summer is officially here, i thought i'd list some summer-y things that i'm particularly grateful for today:
iced passion tea from starbucks
vbs (this week, we'll have over 1,000 kids at gt!)
walks
stargazing
bike rides with my dad
days at the beach
dresses and shorts and sandals
ice cream
road trips
a playful puppy
meetings held outside
picnics

as usual, i'm linking up with ember grey for grateful heart monday! emily runs the grateful heart link-up every monday, and it's open all week…i encourage you to go check it out, read some of the other posts, and consider participating!

oh, and tomorrow i'll be making an exciting announcement about the start of the peony project...a group dedicated to creating community for bloggers...head on over here to join!

what are you grateful for today?

It's seriously so fantastic...and my favorite summer drink! this summer is off to a pretty good start! we're crazy busy with vbs this week (i get the privilege of teaching each night's bible story to our 5 year olds and kindergarteners, and i really procrastinated, so i'm scrambling to write all of my outlines) but then aj and i are going to see one republic on saturday in philly so we're looking forward to that!
