10 Loves

Linking up with {{This Kind of Love}} for What I Love Wednesday
...And be proud of me: I used Instagram in this post - ha!
I'll admit it... the app is growing on me.

Here's a list of what I'm loving today:

1. The gorgeous weather we are having! Blue skies, bright sunshine, a gentle breeze to keep you comfortable. Pure bliss! Wish the entire summer would stay just like this.

2. My hard-working hubby. Love him!

3. Our landscaping... Didn't J do an awesome job on our landscaping? Love it.

4. My favorite place to sit and admire our blooming landscape? My porch swing. Lots of great conversations happen here. I drink some amazing cups of coffee here, too.

5. Loving this shirt and this necklace combo.
Shirt: Lauren Conrad @ Kohls
Necklace: Premier Designs

6. Blooming flowers in my flower bed. Love these precious little button blooms from my white phlox plants.

7. My beautiful kitty, Casey. Loved the way the early morning sun was shining on her as I left for work this morning. Love her eyes... they pop!

8. The fact that I have the most popular kitty on the block. She has nightly visitors that come to her window to say "hi".... or "meow," rather. I've named this particular suitor "Ro-meow" because there's just something very "Romeo and Juliet" about this whole situation. Ha!

9. My summertime favorite... the pool at Mom & Dad's house! Spending lots of summer afternoons lounging by the pool, reading great books, and relaxing on my favorite float. Ah, the perks of being a teacher. Can't complain about the view, either (or the company, for that matter - love you Mom and Dad!).

10. Being blessed with a summer "job" that is more fun than work. I look forward to waking up in the mornings and spending time with my ELL summer school kiddos. Yesterday we learned about different kinds of foods and I taught them how to read a recipe to make s'mores in the microwave. You should've seen their faces when we were done - chocolate and melted marshmallow GA-LORE... but fun learning memories made, all the while. These kids bring tons of joy to my life.

What are you loving today?



  1. Oh my, your landscaping is seriously gorgeous! I have such a black thumb and can't grow anything but you are doing a great job!

  2. Courtney, I can't take the credit... my Hubby is the one who has the green thumb! :)
