I've been feeling so blessed recently. Not just with material things, like books and ice cream, though I do love those. With the love and support of my family and friends. With just life in general. The promise of days ahead. Even though everything isn't perfect (when is it ever?), there's still a lot to be grateful for.

Today, I'm thankful for...

...100 (+3) followers! Wow. That is all I have to say. Oh, and um, t-h-a-n-k  y-o-u!

...The colors purple and green. Okay, I kind of cheated here, but I just really like this picture and I wanted to include it. But I do love those colors!

...Seeing that I won Carlotta's photo challenge. I was so surprised. And happy. :) Thanks!

...Sunflowers. Everyone knows that I love flowers but sunflowers have a special place in my heart because of the way they symbolize summer.

...And the sun. Oh, I am thankful for the sun. Even though it makes it sometimes unbearably hot, it's also responsible for our life. So, yes, I am grateful for it.

...Yummy breakfasts. Breakfast is the best & most important meal of the day (besides dessert, duh. Dinner's good, too, but I don't really like lunch. Rambling...) and I'm always suspicious of people who don't eat breakfast. This is a lemon poppyseed muffin with some mixed fruit. Mhm! :)

...The chance to travel. ~Five more days until we leave for Hawaii! I'm excited for the beach but not the flight. It's something crazy like twelve hours. And we're going like five hours back in time so my sleeping patterns are going to be even more messed up. Yay!

Also I have decided to try and get some guest posters in August while I'm gone so I'll probably be contacting some people soon. It's good to think ahead, right?

...Just the fact that it's summer. I know, I know, I've said it so many times before. But it's true.



  1. I'm thankful for summer too--especially because I have time in the mornings to eat breakfast. My latest favorite is banana bread, berries, and chocolate granola. :)

  2. I am glad you are suspicious of non-breakfast eaters. It only ends up in fainting. Your breakfast looks delicious.
    I love watching the beginning of your summer. It makes the start of my holidays feel closer!

  3. That's so awesome that you are going to go to Hawaii soon! I hope you have a lovely time. And I know how you feel about the long trip - I took a super long one a few weeks ago. But it's always worth it!

    That muffin and those berries look sooo yum. :)

  4. Thanks for your comment on my blog :)
    To be honest, it seems like I see your profile picture a lot, I've just never gotten around to looking at your blog. So glad I did!
    Congratulations on 100... ahem, 104 followers!


  5. New favorite quote!

  6. Oh man looking at that muffin and berries my stomach startled growling! I'm gonna go have some strawberries now! Great blog!
