...from our family, to yours. XO
This really is my favorite time of the year. I don't even mind it being dark at 4:30 in the afternoon. It's the coziest time of day. I'm at home right now, with my Hazelnut Yankee Candle burning, a load of laundry in the washing machine while I watch Nate, Bodhi is taking a little nap, and we're waiting for J to get home so we can go out to our favorite restaurant, the local Chinese joint.
With the impending holiday, I've been doing a lot of thinking about what I'm really thankful for this year. A lot of amazing things have happened in our family over the last year and I think, at least this is true for me, I never step back and realize how incredibly lucky I am. Everyone has stress in their life, it's only natural. But at the end of the day, I have the most amazing family who support me 100% and have always been my best friends. I have a close knit group of friends that I love and were there to make everything easier and a lot more fun during the wedding planning, and I know we'll be friends for a lifetime. Above all, I have J and B and there's a lot of love, respect, and support in our tiny family. There's something really great about knowing you have a partner in crime to spend the rest of your life with. Things in our life are in limbo right now (i.e. moving, jobs, etc) but I know it will be okay. Actually, it will be more than okay. I have a pretty good feeling that things for us are going to be fantastic....and that's something special to be thankful for.
