It is time. Thanksgiving is just over a week away, so I thought it was time to be a little mushy and let you know the Top 5 things that I am thankful for.
(My Brother, Me and My Dad)
I love my family. My parents are awesome and I'm lucky to have a great relationship with each of them. My brother, Brandon, and I didn't go up in the same household and we are 8 years apart, but as I have gotten older I am very grateful for him and our relationship. Ken is probably my favorite person in the world and my best friend. Above everything else I have in my life, my family is the best and I am so thankful that I have them to be there for me.
Towards the end of the college I started to panic about what I was going to do with my career. I majored in English Literature and minored in Religious Studies...yeah, not a lot of choices. So during my junior year I started an internship with a wedding coordinating company and I fell in love with the event industry. I didn't care what part is was, I loved it all. So I finished my internship and stayed with the coordinating company for another 6 months. During that time an awesome opportunity came up to work for an amazing hotel that I love. So I took it. And now I get to work with an incredible hotel and see pretty events every weekend. It's perfect for me.
So they aren't actually puppies anymore, but they will always be puppies to me. The one on the left is April (13 years old, 14 in January!) who I get as a birthday present when I was 10. The one on the right is Jaidyn (2 years old, 3 in February) who I get as a birthday present when I was 21. I love them both and they bring me lots of joy. They each have very different personalities and I am uber thankful for them.
More specifically - where I live. I love the part of Texas that I call home. I love that if I want to go to the beach its only a 30 minute drive or if I want to be in a big city its only a 30 minute drive. Also, thanks to my dad, I can hop on a sail boat and be in the middle of the Gulf. I also love that my area has a small town feel without actually being a tiny town.
Well thats what I am thankful for, what about you?
