Hey Monday, Let's Get Grateful



every monday, i like to link up with ember grey for her grateful heart monday link-up.  we post about things that we're grateful for that day, and it's an awesome way to start off your week.  and lately, i've been thinking about how this gratitude thing is a choice.  some days, it's a little harder to live in that gratitude.  that's just life, ya know?  but i firmly believe that there's always something to be grateful for if you look for it.

so, that being said, here's what i'm grateful for on this monday:
that i still have aj home for almost two weeks
an exciting start to september (chaperoning a youth retreat and then spending a week in boston!)
a really cuddly puppy (who also happens to weigh 75 pounds)
a second job for this year
netflix (can i get an amen!?)
the hint of fall in the air (but that summer still has some good days left)
little day trip dates
peaches
homemade granola (yes, my mom is still at it! i will have to have her take over the blog and share a recipe someday soon!)
clean sheets & quilts to sleep in (there's nothing better than freshly-washed bedding)

so stop by the grateful heart link-up …i encourage you to go check it out, read some of the other posts, and consider participating!  if posting on a monday doesn't suit your blogging schedule, good news!  the link-up is open all week long!

what are you grateful for today?

  2. I am so excited for fall too! It really felt like fall here a couple of weeks ago, but we have been at 90-100 degrees for the past several days with no end in sight. Aren't peaches great this time of year? We had some REALLY good ones a couple of weeks ago, and bought some more last week. I was so excited for more peaches, but these ones aren't good. :( So sad.

  6. I'm jealous of the Fall weather you are starting to get! It will be a bit before that makes its way down to Florida.

  7. oh gosh, well it's still in the high 80s/90s here, but people have been talking about a "polar vortex" and snow in september, which is SO not ok!!

  8. We had a chilly weekend and have been having chilly nights for a while now, and I really really want a few good summer days before fall really hits! plus, there are rumors of snow in september, which is just not ok in any way! haha, but yes, our house is constantly stocked with peaches :) so sad that you had a not-so-great batch :(

  10. I feel you! I lived in Florida until this year and the weather there sucks. I got so tired of summer 1, summer 2, summer 3 and summer.
