a gratitude list.

Thanksgiving was the first major holiday Danny and I spent together. It was 2008. We were newly engaged. The six years before that we’d both gone home for the holidays. I’m glad we waited. It made it that much more special, the families understood and our engagement suddenly felt very real. But now I’m so happy we celebrate together.
Like many married couples we’re faced with the “every other holiday” schedule. This year is technically Bockting Thanksgiving and Schramm Christmas but we’re attempting to do both this week. We’ll celebrate turkey day with the Schramm’s in San Diego for a few days and then fly back for a Thanksgiving weekend with the Bocktings.
…i’m thankful for…
danny, a wonderful best friend & husband.
the past 8 years we’ve been in love.
that we found each other so young.
my parents… my mom. my dad.
my two brothers, their other halves and the beautiful children they’ve made.
that i didn’t get stuck with crazy in-laws.
southwest rapid rewards vouchers & companion pass.
girlfriends turned pseudo-sisters.
the real & close relationship i have with both my mother and father-in-law.
family in arizona – earl, tricia and her expanding belly.
huntie our furry son, the sweetest french bulldog in the world.
the 3.5 hilarious years we had with our silly sydney.
a handy hubby who created our cozy home.
our health.
handwritten cards from family & friends.
so many amazing vacations, travels and experiences this year.
the iPhone 4 & my macbook pro.
uncle bob’s move out west.
 the kind of friends you can’t imagine life without.
 postino and the many long conversations about life we’ve had there.
arizona’s ten months of patio weather.
pandora and music in general.
the not-so-bad outcome of our kitchen fire and that i didn’t hurt anyone.
vitamins that are making my hair grow – finally.
….now it’s your turn to make a list.
…from our family to yours…
{happy thanksgiving}
