Thankful Thursday: summer break

Today is a little bit of a special Thankful Thursday because it's going to be our last linkup for the summer. We all decided it would be good to give the linkup a little bit of a break so we can focus on less computer time. I'm so thankful for all of the bloggers I've met through this linkup and if you're a regular of the linkup, I hope you'll continue to share what you're thankful for in your blog posts!


1. I almost always make my coffee at home these days, but when the weather is warmer I'm so thankful for delicious iced-coffees.
2. This weekend we took advantage of gorgeous weather by going to Eastern Market and then walking to the outdoor area of the Botanical Gardens (pictured) and down to the mall. I love seeing people outside playing sports or just enjoying all of the museums and monuments.
3. Finding delicious pizza! I rarely eat pizza anymore, so when I do I definitely enjoy & appreciate when it's pizza done right!
4. A weeknight Nat's game with friends. Despite how dark & scary it looks, the weather never got that bad!

  10. I love a great coffee treat! I so rarely get coffee out anymore that it really is such a nice little treat! I kind of love when the sky looks scary like that. The prospect of a good summer storm is my favorite!

  12. I'm going to get a cup of coffee, although not iced right after I finish typing this!!! To blog posts in a row mentioning coffee and now I'm craving some. :) And I was actually just thinking that I needed to dig out my home-brewed iced coffee recipe! It's about that time!

  13. I try so often to make my own iced coffee but there's nothing better than buying those bad boys...when they're made right (aka not by me haha) they're the perfect summer drink

  15. That pizza looks SO good! Love it when they use fresh mozzarella. Summer thunderstorms are one of my favorite things but I'm so glad the weather held off for you guys at the game!

  16. Ohh that pizza looks amazing. And even though the weather looks pretty scary in that last picture it actually looks really cool with the contrasting colors! I always think the sky right before a storm looks pretty!

    I love botanical gardens! Always seems so peaceful there.

  26. I'd be happy with all of those things too - a good cup of coffee (hot or iced), a good pizza, a baseball game, and some outside time. That's the recipe for a great day/week/weekend!

  30. I make most of my coffee at home too, but I do love splurging on an iced coffee when I'm out on a hot summer day! That pizza looks amazing!! Awesome pic of the sky, glad you still got to enjoy the game. We're hoping to make it to a game before it gets too hot :)
