30 Things I’m Grateful For in June

I can’t believe it’s been one year since I started this monthly grateful project (largely inspired by The Happiness Project and Snappy Causal). As I look back this time last year, I can’t help but remember all the good times I had last summer – all the family get-togethers, beach days, eating at new restaurants in Milwaukee, and being inspired by everything from fashion blogs to paper shops. It’s hard being away from my family and friends, but this month brought plenty of happy and fun things I’m grateful for.
