One Thousand Gifts / #98-113

I don’t mean to brag, but there really is no place like Charleston, SC.

I found myself behind my camera quite a bit this week and there are so many things that I found to be thankful for. Most of them have something to do with this place I call home–the lowcountry.

What are the things about the place you call home that cause you to give thanks?

    Reblogged this on Lunch with the Lord and commented:
    I just wanted to share with you some of the new things I have added to my list of 1000 Gifts over the last few weeks. I would love to hear from you about what you are thankful for. Also I would love it if you would visit my primary blog, Making Lemonade, at http://alifeofmakinglemonade.wordpress.com I try to post additions to my gift list on Mondays, add some sort of reflection on my journey on Tuesdays or Wednesdays and post something that has inspired me on Thursdays or Fridays. I hope you all are having an amazing summer!!
