Giving Thanks

This has been one whirlwind year for me, probably the most exciting and stressful year of my life to date and seeing how Thanksgiving is tomorrow I want to write about all that I’m thankful for this year.

Kristian—My best friend, my heart and my future husband. He has brought so much more joy into my life than I ever thought was possible. I never thought I would find someone to love me so unconditionally but he truly does and for that I’ll be forever thankful

Family—Both mine and Kristian’s…they have offered us so much support both emotional and financial when it comes to planning this little thing I like to call a wedding. We really couldn’t do any of this without them

Halpert and Wendal—AKA our furbabies. I don’t know how I lived so long without having a pet in my life. Even when they drive us crazy by waking us up at the ass crack of dawn, they make us laugh on a daily basis and bring us so much happiness.

Real Life Friends—Most of my close friends have been in my life for 10 years or longer, they’ve seen all my ups and downs and many of my crazy, stalker, why-the-hell-are-you-dating-him moments and for better or worse have continued to put up with me. I just hope they all know how truly thankful I am to have each and every one of them in my life.

Blog Friends- It’s amazing to me how connected I feel to people I’ve never met in real life (though I hope one day to). All of your support, advice and enthusiasm has really made the stresses of wedding planning so much easier. I’m so happy I’ve found you all and I look forward to continuing to share our lives. To sympathize with each other during sad times and rejoice together during happy times. A special shoutout to Ela who wrote easily one of the sweetest things ever about me today. You my darling are amazing!

J-O-B- As much as I hate waking up before the sun rises and dragging my ass to work M-F for 8 hours a day I am very thankful to not only have A job but one where I like my co-workers and clients, get paid well and even get Xmas bonuses. In these shitty economic times I realize how incredibly lucky I am!

Health- As of yet no pig inspired illness has invaded my body and I’m very thankful for that!

DVR- If it weren’t for you I would never be able to leave my house or keep up with my trashy reality shows like Real Housewives or Bridezillas

Internet- If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have ever found my job, been able to plan my wedding, met my bloggie friends or found the love of my life.

I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!

You just made me realize how important the internet has been to my life! :) I also found my fiance, job and have done all of my wedding planning online. Oh, what did we ever do before you, internet?!

Ooh...the Internet. That is a good one! So grateful for the technology that brings people together. Even then though you're so far away, I get to see you everyday :) Well, MWF...but let's not get technical.

I'm so happy you have amazing people surrounding you - IRL and here. You deserve every bit of it.

Have the best Thanksgiving, hon!
Love ya!

All such wonderful things to be grateful for! I love that you're grateful for your job and health -- things I see taken for granted far too much (including by myself).

Happy Thanksgiving!
