Grateful Heart Monday

Today is Monday. Memorial Day. The start of another week. The beginnings of summer. There is so much to be thankful for! Today I wanted to share a few things that I am grateful for with Ember Grey's "Grateful Heart Monday" linkup! Join in! (She's also having a really great giveaway on her blog. Check it out!)

Grateful Heart w/ Ember Grey

Today I am very thankful for our troops. I and thankful for my freedoms and for those that made sacrifices and served our country to defend those freedoms. To anyone that has served the United States in any way, thank you! My brother is being deployed soon and I am so thankful for him and his dedication to the National Guard and protecting others. 

Today I am thankful for changes in schedule. I was supposed to work this evening and the schedule was changed so I get to enjoy Memorial Day with some friends! Little things like that are such huge blessings in my life.

Today I am thankful for sunshine. I have been so happy the last few weeks because the weather is getting warmer and the sun has been shining in the big blue sky. Being outside on days like today really brighten my mood and give me such a happiness!

Today I am thankful for plants. I got a new pot and some plants at Lowe's yesterday and planted it and now my room has some life! I love gardens and succulents and flowers and anytime I can add one to my windowsill my heart sings. 

Today I am thankful for weekends with Mark. We both started new jobs and live a few hours away from one another so we only get to see each other on the weekends (if I'm not working) so the time we get to spend together this summer up until the wedding is going to be very special to me! This past weekend we had dinner, visited some friends, went to a graduation party for a friend, went to church, and had dinner with his family. 

Oh, and we accidentally matched on Saturday. Oops! :)

What are you thankful for this week?

  1. We went to the Farmer's Market this weekend, so I am also enjoying the flowers & veggies. Now to get them all in the garden!

    Nice matching outfit. :)

  2. Natalie I love this and can see your precious heart just shining through so clearly! You sound like a girl after my own heart too -- warm weather, blue skies, and plants make my heart sing too! : ) Hope you have an amazing summer girl!

  3. Well for one, I love that picture of you and Mark but even MORE so, I love that you two were matching!! ha! I feel like that happens all the time with me and Christian and typically one of us will change because I don't know if we could pull it off and it actually be cute like you guys :) Thanks for linking up, lady! Enjoy the rest of your long weekend!

  4. Thank you so much :) You as well!

  5. Thank you so much Emily! I hope that you had a nice long weekend too :) Love this link up!

  6. I love your tiny garden so much! Sadly, most plants die under my care besides my loyal and understanding aloe plant. I am thankful for my mom who waters my plants and then moves them outside when I neglect them. :)

  7. Aw she should get the best mom ever award! Haha congrats on your Aloe plant though ;)

  8. You two are SO cute! I love that picture of you both :)
