Since I may or may not be spending most of tomorrow eating, I thought I would write a short, but sweet, snippet of what I am thankful for this year.

1. Husband

Love him. Can't express how grateful I am that he is in my life :) I am so proud that he is just a little bit closer to completing his goals this year and that he hasn't quit working toward them. And he still makes time to keep me laughing and smiling every single day.

2.  Families.
Both mine and the one I gained courtesy of item number 1. And the furry companions that live with us and sometimes drive me up the wall. (Especially since one of them has discovered a new found love for our compost pile and, thus, spends almost every waking second hanging out by it, smelling it, laying by it, and *ew* probably eating things out of it).

But in all seriousness, I know that many people struggle with their in-laws, and many more with their own inherited family - through no fault of their own, sometimes people just aren't compatible. So I feel incredibly thankful and blessed that my family seems (I hope!) to like spending time with me, and I with them.

3. Friends.
Especially these ladies. They are pretty much like an adopted family to me, but I feel like they needed a separate post. I drifted away from them for a while during college, and I am so thankful that I have found my way back to them.

4.  Everything else is just icing on the cake. I really wouldn't have anything if it weren't from items 1,2, & 3.

Happy Thanksgiving all! I hope you will be gorging with your family, friends, and/or loved ones tomorrow :)
