December already?

This year has flown by.  Really, just gone by so fast that I couldn't keep up.  Our family was busy with Olivia and watching her grow, learning how to be the best parents we can be, learning how to be married, incorporating being married, parents and both working full time opposite schedules.  Wow, it's been crazy.  Crazy but amazing all at the same time.  I've loved everything about this year.  Our first full year of parenthood.  Our first full year as a married couple.  This is one year I'll reflect on for the rest of my life.

This time of year I often think about just how much I have to be thankful for.  This year, I think my list is the longest it's ever been.  I think that sometimes with the hustle and bustle of the season, we tend to forget the small things we should be thankful for.  Here's my short list.  Believe me, I could go on for days about what I'm thankful for...
     ~My daughter, husband, family and friends
     ~our health
     ~our warm home and working cars
     ~a job to come to every day
     ~good food, and enough food to feed my family
     ~watching my daughter learn to walk
     ~my husband for working nights so he can stay home with our daughter during the day
     ~my DVR
Like I said, my list could go on for days.  I'll keep it short for now.  What are some little things you're thankful for?

Those are wonderful blessings to be thankful for! I think I'm mostly thankful for my daughter too. She's the most amazing thing ever! Isn't it funny how kids just change our life for the best and give us so much purpose? Love it!

PS: thanks for stopping by :-)
