I have so many things to be thankful for, and while I'm forever reflecting upon said things, today seems like an okay day to write a little bit about it.
Kevin Best soon-to-be husband in the world. Best friend in the world. Best partner in crime. My support system, rock, strength, heart and soul. We're coming up on our two year anniversary, and we're six months away from the wedding. I feel lucky to have him each and every single day, and don't know where I'd be without him. I'm getting teary-eyed writing about him, so I'm cutting myself off.
Dad, Jason, Mom (Nana & Papa, Grandma & Grandpa) Could a gal ask for a better family? I think not. They've always been there to support and love me, and I'm forever grateful for that. Somehow they've managed to step it up since the engagement, assisting with every ounce of wedding planning, and most importantly accepting Kevin as family. Words can't express how lucky I feel to have a family and future husband that truly love each other. And now that I mention that, I feel even luckier that I've been welcomed with open arms into Kevin's family. And our families get along! I mean really, it's like a dream.
Friends Where do I begin? Everyone says that their friends are the best friends, but seriously, mine are. Always there for me- whether it involves laughter, tears, venting, stress-attacks, etc. And not surprising at all, when Kev and I got engaged they all stepped up to volunteer their assistance with anything we need. People usually say things like this but then take off running as soon as there's an actual request. Not my friends- nope. They've been there for
Wilson (Beans) Sure he still pees in the house sometimes. Yes he tries to fight all dogs that are bigger than him. Definitely a needy animal, forever wanting to be in Mom's lap. I'm fine with it. I love him. Hell, I'm obsessed with him. Kev and I started a family when we adopted him in Summer 2011. He's our first kid, even if he's a canine. I'm certain Beans thinks he came out of me, and I'll continue to let him act accordingly.
A few other things I'm thankful for:
- Our health
- Our amazing jobs that we both love so much (and my kick-ass boss and co-workers)
- Our rad loft
- Beautiful art- mainly music and contemporary ballet
- The time I get to spend with those nearest and dearest to my heart.
I'm off to spend time with my loved ones. I'm going to soak up every minute, and maybe eat some delicious food while I'm at it. Happy Thanksgiving!
