thankful for

With Thanksgiving coming up this weekend, I've been thinking what I am thankful for this year. This question always feels so BIG, because really, I am thankful for a million things! But what is top of the list, or most 'all encompassing'? One that I always say, and will always say, is I am thankful for my family and my friends. This past weekend at Christina's wedding was a beautiful reminder of how lucky we are. It was a weekend (that's right, not just a day, but a weekend) of celebration, of food, of games (corn hole and ladder golf being the faves), of conversation, swimming, boating and more. I am so blessed with an incredible family that I will always love and cherish.

I am also thankful for feeling good! I had some days this year when I felt absolutely stepped on, and it truly makes you appreciate the days when the ol' body is in tip top shape.

And the last one, let's just put it simply. I am thankful. Thankful of where I live, who I know, the freedom I have, the love I have, the joy I see around me all the time. I am so blinkin' lucky to have this life, and I am thankful for that big blessing.

Because every post is better with a photo, here is a sneak from Christina and Mike's wedding. They were lucky enough to have Justine Russo be their photographer for the day, but I managed to sneak one or two!
