Turkey Day Thanks

I'm thankful for the opportunity to have traveled SO much in 2011. It was such a blessing to have been able to see my family in Michigan, visit Vancouver, Hawaii, and take a small weekend cruise to Ensenada, Mexico! It's not every year I get to travel this much, 2011 was truly special.

I'm thankful to live SO close to the ocean. I take it for granted in the winter, but even sitting on a bench with a hot chocolate watching the sun set over the Pacific ocean on a chilly night is just as magical as a warm summer day.

I'm thankful for my boyfriend & best friend who ALWAYS supports me, makes me laugh constantly...and laughs at my lame jokes every time (okay....most of the time at least)

I'm thankful for both my immediate and extended family, being so close with so many of my cousins. It's like having extra siblings. Yep, these two are my brothers!

I'm thankful for having such amazing friends who are honest with me. That is the sometimes the most important aspect of a friendship (along with positivity and dependability.) To be able to have someone who is confident enough in their relationship with me to tell me when I'm wrong (in a nice way) is something I'll never ever take for granted. I am so lucky!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! What are you thankful for?!
