So Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving! 

I first hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving and is surrounded by loved ones!  I hope that you enjoy your day and your weekend to come ( with lots of shopping )! I hope everyone can take some time and really think about what they are Thankful for and what great things are in there life as well as surround there lives!  

I know that I am so Thankful for so many things.
Some of which I will forget.

I am thankful for a hardworking husband whom I adore on just about every day!

I am thankful for my first born with all her sassyness 
she brightens my day and always makes me smile and laugh.

I am thankful for my baby who is the sweetest little thing in the world, she is truly our miracle baby
( even though she has yet to sleep through the night )

My girls . . Alex and Avin you are my world and I am more thankful for you then you will ever know! 

I am thankful for our home and having heat in our cold Minnesota winters.
no matter how much work the house may be and how much money this house may cost it is worth every penny because we will make so many memories.

 I am thankful for my job and my husbands job.
We may not love our job everyday but we are grateful to have jobs and are lucky to be passionate about what we are doing.

I am thankful for our cars so that we are able to get around and do fun things!
I am thankful for my friendships that I have both in real life and from the blog world. 
I would be lost without some of my friendships.  I know I am not the best at making time for some of in IRL friends but know that I am grateful for the text messages, phone calls, emails and random lunches we can put together.

Thankful for my neighbors.
We would not love our house and neighborhood as much as we do if it werent for our neighbors.  It is amazing having such great neighbors.  We have made life long friends, all of us.  Alex is so lucky to have so many amazing friends in our circle.  I am lucky to have amazing women that I can share stories with and gossip with on a daily basis.  My husband is lucky that he can hang with the boys some nights and Avin doesn't know it yet but she will be lucky to grow up with little ones her age!

I am thankful for my photography business and am loving almost every second of it.
( lets hope it takes off soon and grows like a weed )

I am Thankful for my family ( both mine and chads )
I say this all the time but family is the most important thing and we can never spend to much time with family.  We enjoy every moment and only wish we had more time to make more memories with each family member. 

I am Thankful for my Mom. 
Yes I know she is part of my family but my mom is my best friend and she is there for me for everything.  She is an amazing Grandma and I am so glad my girls get to spend so much time with my mom.  My mom and I are so much a like and we bump heads a lot but there is no one else I would rather be more like then my mom!

Last but not least I am thankful for our health.  
I don't take this for granted one bit and I know I could be healthier but I am thankful for how healthy we are and how healthy my girls are.

I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving. 
Chad and I ( with the help of Alex ) spent the morning cleaning.  We will get ready to head to Chad's aunts house now and be home a little early as my husband has to work at 4:30am.  His family will be coming down and spending the rest of the weekend with us!
( PS. SO THANKFUL I DON'T WORK RETAIL ANYMORE! )
