30 Things I’m Grateful For in August

August turned out to be a great month for me. It’s so strange to think of where I was this time last year. This month, I visited some pretty cool local places, ate some delicious food, and got my very first and second tattoo! Even now, as I hit Publish, I’m currently in Colorado visiting one of my best friends. So many things can happen in just a year. Here’s to a great September and to more traveling in my future.
