I am thankful for...
[+] A home that is ours. One that keeps us safe and warm. A roof over our heads. A place to create memories and relax with my little family.
[+] A job that constantly challenges me with a company I take a lot of pride in. I have some pretty great coworkers, enjoy what I do
most of the time and feel like I'm really contributing.
[+] Our big, snuggly, perfectly sweet Ollie. Our lives are forever changed because of him and I couldn't imagine life without him. He's become pretty dang spoiled lately but I wouldn't have it any other way.
[+] J and my health. I've seen too much sickness both serious and not-so-serious in my time preparing for medical school and I cannot imagine the struggle that some people go through with continuous, significant health problems.
[+] Family. In all meanings of the word. My immediate family sometimes has our issues but I would do a lot for them and hope they would for me too. I'm also beyond lucky to be gaining such an amazing family as my in-laws and not only J's immediate family but his cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents, the whole bunch.
[+] Two amazing states that I can call home. California weather is pretty dang awesome throughout the year and being able to head to the cold in Colorado is definitely icing on the cake.
[+] My fiance. These last few months have been very stressful for both of us in different ways and to know that we are there to support each other 100% brings me so much joy. Plus he sure does bring a smile to my face. I would do anything for this man and I cannot wait to be his wife.
[+] That our wedding is in 36 short days. The time of our engagement has flown by and while it seems that my to-do list is constantly growing, I know that if nothing else goes right on that day walking away as J's wife and having him as my husband will be a success.
