5 Things To Be Thankful For In August

August is my birthday month and my husband’s birthday month so there are lots to be thankful for in August. Besides our birthdays here are 5 August related things I am grateful for:

1. Thankful for NO snow!

I am not a cold weather person at all so I soak up the heat as much as I can while it lasts. I would rather be sweating then freezing cold plus nothing beats the feeling of the sun shining down on you.

2. Thankful for living near the shore!

Yes, I am from Jersey so I don’t call the beach the beach but I call it the Shore. Before you even get the image in your mind, I don’t mean the Jersey shore as seen on MTV because families don’t party and get drunk on the beach. We have only had the chance to have one shore trip this summer but we had a great time until our sunblock failed and suffered through a week of sunbun. (Maybe I should do a review of sunblocks that fail for super pale skinned peeps like my family??!)

3. Sunday Family Hiking Days

To help ease my body back into working out, we started a family hiking day almost every Sunday since Father’s Day. In addition to helping my body work out, it is a chance for us to bond as family since we are dealing with the stepdaughter/stepfather resentment situation right now. It has been great to get into nature and explore our surroundings. I always feel at ease being outdoors just hate the bugs and bug bites. Evie loves being in the carrier and looking at everything that passes her by.

4. Getting Ready For Back To School

This year is even more exciting…. for me at least because Danyella is going back to public school! She is not a happy camper to stop homeschooling but I just can’t do it mentally, physically or emotionally anymore. At least she is going back to a school that she attended in the past (not the school I pulled her from!) and will have her best friend to enjoy her 6th grade year. (This will be a more in-depth post in the future)

5. Pumpkin Everything is Coming Soon!

Yes! Yes! Yes! I am one of the crazy pumpkin loving people who if the world would let me, I would enjoy pumpkin everything all year round! Typically, the end of August brings back my much-loved Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. My local DD, next the dance studio, will sneak pumpkin flavoring from other locations just for me and “Christina” to enjoy as much as we can. Pumpkin season here I come!!

  1. We love hiking, but haven’t gotten to do it much, this summer because my bro-in-law got hurt and we’ve been helping out. Bring on the chai lattes!

  2. No snow…yes! I am so over snow and want to move from Connecticut. I think the pumpkin craze that’s coming soon is over done now.

  3. These are all awesome things to be thankful for. I love how positive this post is!

  4. beautiful things to be thankful for. i’m thankful for August being the month my daughter was born…and Michael Jackson.
    ….lol @ the pumpkin spice. That’s pretty much all i look forward to in the fall…well and halloween and the beautiful colors of the leaves. They can keep the fall weather though.

  5. I am also thankful for no snow but I moved to Florida to get away from the cold. I think I might be allergic to snow. Even though I can shop whenever I want, I do miss back to school shopping. That was always so much fun!

  6. August was an exceptional month for me. I can think of much more than 5 things for myself!

  7. I love that cooler weather is coming and I will soon get to pull out boots and sweaters. And yes, pumpkin flavored everything is nice too.

  8. Am just waiting to see the fall colors … and am really excited about It

  9. I am not thankful for Pumpkin spice season. No I like the heat I dont want to start bundling up!

  10. Thanks for sharing! I am also definitely thankful for pumpkin everything coming soon!
