Give Thanks

I am thankful for....

time spent with family
hot chocolate
a warm bed
my wonderful friends
delicious food
my countless blessings
a loving marriage
my education
my health
giving and receiving love
parents who support me
not having to worry about my needs being met
a God who continues to show me more and more things to be thankful for.

Give Thanks. Always.

Consider Yourself Judged

If you have a Christmas Tree up in your house....
If you have hung up the stockings and the lights....
If you have started jamming to those classic Christmas tunes....
You are being judged.

It is NOT Christmas time yet.


I refuse to be a holiday skipper. Thanksgiving is too great of a holiday to pass up.
Don't get me wrong, I love me some Christmas, but I just feel bad for Thanksgiving. He just lives in the shadow of his jolly, present-giving older brother.

So here's to the falling leaves
the pumpkin pie
the roasted turkey
the crisp air
the apple cider
the candy corn
the light sweaters
and the many reasons we have to give thanks.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I feel like I just got engaged all over again.

I just got my ring back after sending it off to get steam cleaned and re-dipped.

It is just so shiny and beautiful.

I can't stop looking at it.

Ignore my fingernails.

Family Vacay!

Over Fall Break (I know, I know, that was like three weeks ago...) David and I went on our first family vacation with my family since we've been married! It was so much fun!

I will say it was kinda strange going on vacation with my family and getting our own room together in the condo....haha

But, we went to Branson (of course) and spent the whole weekend eating, relaxing, and riding "Fire-in-the-hole" at least fifty times with my little cousin.

First Family Vacation: Success.

Our beautiful Condo

Remember this little cutie in a tutu from our wedding?

Grandpa's Mansion. Classic.
Newlyweds :)
