It has been a busy week! I traveled for the Christmas holiday and then for work but I'm back today! How was everyone's Christmas? I hope it was wonderful! This week I have SOO many things to be thankful for. Instead of making it just about the week, I thought I'd put a couple things I'm thankful for that happened this year. Though I have had a wonderful year, here are just a couple! I hope you all take time to be thankful for all of your opportunities this year! We have another great year just around the corner!!
As you know, I got married early this year. Before the wedding, my beautiful best friend threw me an awesome bachelorette party. It was Breakfast at Tiffany's themed so we all wore little black dresses and pearls and went out to dinner, to a bar where there are tons of games (I was a skeeter ball CHAMP!), and then to an improv show. Here we are in one of the few pictures we have taken together in the last 11 years! haha. At least it's a good one :) She is such a wonderful best friend and I'm lucky to have her in my life!
Then... on March 19, I married the love of my life. I'm so thankful for him and the life we have started together. In some way, he has played a part in everything I am thankful for this year. I love you, sweetheart!
After the wedding, we went to the beautiful country of New Zealand. It was an incredible honeymoon and I'm so grateful that Husband put together such an amazing trip for us. We were so lucky throughout the entire honeymoon and it was exactly what we wanted. If only we could go back for our one year... haha.
In May, we got Max :) I know you've seen this picture before but the most recent picture I have with him (from Christmas day) is on another computer. And I really like this picture. He's such a goofball and such a big part of our family. Although he's not quite a year and in the peak of his puppy-stage, I still can't imagine not having him. We were blessed with an amazing dog.
In June, I got a new job!! I'm so grateful for everyone who helped me get this job that I love and for the blessings I've had since I've come to this company. Each day, I think about how lucky I am to enjoy going to work and being a part of a company that I feel truly cares for its employees.
I'm also thankful for the chance to play with a Siberian tiger kitten this weekend!! My mother-in-law gave me a last minute Christmas present when I was up there this weekend. Apparently there were baby tigers that you could play with, so she took me to meet Squiggy. He is 12 1/2 weeks old in this picture and so much fun! We played for about half an hour and he was sooo sweet. Apparently he found my lap very comfortable because he kept climbing in it and snuggling with me. Siberian tigers are my favorite animal in the whole world and I never thought I'd have an opportunity to spend time with one. I'm so lucky I got to!!
Loving and learning a little more each day.
