Happy Thanksgiving, friends! My heart is full and I sure do have a lot to give thanks for this year! 2015 has been a year to remember with many highs and lots of exciting things in the works! Here is all that I am thankful for this year…
My sweet Tony – my rock, support system, biggest fan, and lover of life. I am marrying my best friend and that is the best gift of all.
My parents – Paul and CoCo might be the greatest people on earth. God bless my mom for still sharing her Von Maur charge card with me. And for my dad and his endless advice and go-to knowledge of everything car related and for lending his time and talents to help make our house a home. We pay him in beer!
My sister – she is wise beyond her years and I am in awe of how much adversity and challenges she has overcome in her 25 years of life. She is a testament of a pure, true spirit. She is beautiful on the inside and out and I love having the honor of being her big sis. I can’t wait to grow old and grow up with her by my side.
My friends – not only did I inherit an awesome group of friends when I started dating Tony (almost 8 years ago), but I have to say that over the years, the realization that quality over quantity when it comes to good girlfriends has become oh-so-true. The awesome group of women whom I am lucky to call my friends are some of the most inspiring, beautiful, and bad-ass chicks around. I can’t wait to travel to London and Paris with Michelle and to experience her love of adventure and travel first-hand! When I say “I do” on December 31, 2016, I will be surrounded by unconditional love and laughter and am so blessed to have such amazing friends.
All my blessings, big and small, and for all the things that didn’t go according to plan – God’s plan is far bigger and better than anything we could dream up for ourselves. I am so thankful for where I am, today, right now. All the good, the bad, the ugly…. It has all happened so I could be where I am at, right here, right now!
The realization that I can actually follow my dreams – Yes, the light bulb went off this year when I realized that I was more afraid to NOT pursue my dreams than I was to take the risk. I’ll share more in the coming months as to exactly what this means and what it will look like! But… Don’t quit your day dream.
What are you gals thankful for??? Sending hugs and love to you all!
