Today I am grateful for:

New shoes (I painted these!). Whenever I sport a new pair of shoes, these lyrics run through my head, “hey… I put some new shoes on and suddenly everything is right.” How true.

Charming my way out of a parking ticket. Heeeeeeey! Thanks Mom and Dad for the braces, making my smile straighter, brighter and more effective. 😉

I don’t know if you can read this, but the graffiti says, “no diving.” This has popped up in a few places around the city and it leaves me with a big grin everytime I see it.

Thunderstorms. Big cracks of thunder and brilliant flashes of lightning. Love it!
