thankful for…


Being able to give to others, no matter how small. Internet. Lazy days. Spending Thanksgiving with family, even though we’re far away from home. New restaurants. Good friends. Exploring a new city and new neighborhood. Amazing Family. Sun and warmth in November. Happy hours. People I’ve met and oppourtunities I’ve had through blogging. Wedding pictures. Babies. Good food. Health. Workouts. A wonderful husband. Red wine. Comfy sweaters. Good books. A new family. New recipes. Beautiful pictures.
