27 Reasons to Give Thanks

This year I turned 26, which means this is my 27th Thanksgiving, so I thought…why not right down 27 reasons I have to give thanks.  I could think of way more than this, but these are some of the best ones (in no particular order)…

  1. I’m thankful that I met my best friend when we were 20.  We’ve gotten to grow up together, grow more in love together, and take on the world together. 
  2. I’m thankful that this past April we got to celebrate the love we have for each other in front of 50 of our closest friends and family as they witnessed us make the ultimate commitment to each other.
  3. I’m thankful for the 4 best girlfriends anyone could ever ask for.  You know who you are and I love you!
  4. I’m thankful for Pinterest.
  5. I’m thankful for my camera and lenses and all things photography.
  6. I’m thankful for the color pink.
  7. I’m thankful for the ability to run, dance, and all around move my body.
  8. I’m thankful for Winston and Zona.
  9. I’m thankful for my mom. She is so strong and so brave.  I could not have asked for a better example of a loving, devoted, courageous, graceful woman to be my mom and an example of beauty in every aspect of her life.  She gave me confidence. 
  10. I’m thankful for my dad.  He set a high standard of what to look for in a father, husband, and friend.  He set me up for success.  Gave me the guidance and support when I needed it.  He let me fall when I needed that and was there to pick me right back up.  
  11. I’m thankful for my little brother and all of the fun and strange memories we have over the years.  He’s been my best friend my entire life.  Such a goofball with the biggest heart of gold anyone could have.  I’m constantly learning from him.  He has such a good soul.
  12. I’m thankful for music.
  13. I’m especially thankful for LMFAO’s Party Rock this month.
  14. I’m thankful for skinny jeans.
  15. I’m thankful for my personal trainer that helps me look good in said skinny jeans.
  16. I’m thankful that my husband not only puts up with my quirks, but encourages them. 
  17. I’m thankful for aviator sun glasses.
  18. I’m thankful for Pearl.
  19. I’m thankful for the ability to travel all over to visit our friends and family.
  20. I’m thankful for Starbucks Via.
  21. I’m thankful for my in-laws.  They are kind, loving, and giving.  They accepted me into their family with open arms. 
  22. I’m thankful for my "nephew". -- One of my best friends son...I'm "Auntie Jen"
  23. I’m thankful for blue wigs.
  24. I’m thankful to be living in a free nation.
  25. I’m thankful for the city of Austin.  It’s a pretty cool town.
  26. I’m thankful that I always feel like I’m home when I go back to Arizona and California.
  27. I’m thankful for each new day that I’m given.
What are you thankful for?
