On this Thanksgiving day I am no more thankful for this wonderful life I have than I am any other day… but there are some things I’m extra thankful for this year…
I’m thankful for my husband – a man who has stood by me for the last 14 years through the good, the bad, and the horribly ugly. Making the move to Connecticut has been eventful – to say the least. Nothing in life comes easy, so I’m blessed and grateful for my husband to have agreed to take this leap into the unknown and for loving me despite my flaws.
I’m thankful for my family – my immediate, my extended, my in-laws – for their love and continued support throughout what have been an insane six months.
To my siblings – Liz, Jesse, Christine, and Tine – I’m thankful to live close enough to you now to bother you daily.
I’m thankful we all have a new little one in the family who has brought us so many smiles and so much joy since she the day she was born. I’m so excited to watch you grow, to take care of you in the new year, and to chase you and Ailey out of the toilet. Our girl gang wouldn’t be complete without you Sloane Kennedy.
I’m thankful for the friendships – new and old – that I’ve been blessed with. My heart feels so full when I think of how many amazing friends I have made in my life.
I’m thankful for the opportunities I’ve been given to grow and expand this little ole blog into something more than a little ole blog. The network of incredibly talented women I’m so fortunate to work with and know – from the ones who are my real life friends to those that I’ve only met online, thank you. Thank you for teaching me tricks to make life as a blogger easier (that’s you LISETTE!) and for following me around with a camera and wine (BETH!). Thanks for encouraging me to continue writing when I feel like I’m wasting my time.
I’m thankful for my parents who’ve allowed us to invade their house and life while we search for our forever home. Thank you for Michael’s nights, emergency wine, and all of the baby wrangling.
And I’m thankful for my little turkeys – who made me a Mommy – the most rewarding, but difficult job I’ve ever had.
