Today I am thankful for my home. I never imagined it would feel SO much like "home" so quickly. When I drive into our neighborhood, I still shake my head and pinch myself. I can't believe this is my life. I love it here so much. Whether it be entertaining for holidays, hosting parties to raise money or collect items for children and families in need or simply having out of town guests (hint hint!!!) I can't wait to share this amazing space that God has blessed us with!!! For this...even ALL the hardwood floors...I am thankful!

Today I'm thankful for this...
If you can't tell, this is a roaring fire in front of two of my 3 favorite men. It's my little brother and my husband and the picture was taken by my dad...the other favorite man in my life. I'm thankful that I was (and still am) daddy's girl. I am thankful that I had a brother just 26 months younger than me to grow up with. I am thankful to have the love of a man who is good for so many reasons. MOST of all, I am thankful that they love each other enough that I'm not the least bit worried about them being in the woods together...with guns.

Until Thanksgiving I will be posting one thing each day that I am thankful for.

Today, on Veteran's Day, I am thankful for the brave men and women who have fought or are fighting for our country. Without them, I may not have the freedom to post my opinions here for all to see. I am also extremely thankful for their families and friends at home who are taking care of business at home. There are SO many out there who are raising children, celebrating holidays, giving birth, witnessing baby's firsts without their spouses by their side. I am thankful that they are strong enough to do this. It amazes me. Jana M., Kristen S., Lori are my heroes. You are 3 of the strongest women I know. Thank YOU for your service to our country! I guess Bryce, Montana and Michael are pretty awesome too!!
