Things We are Thankful For This Thanksgiving


I’m thankful first and foremost for a healthy, happy and whole family.  I gave birth to two absolutely perfect babies…beautiful and flawless.  In today’s world, this itself is a miracle.

I’m thankful for a husband that is my best friend, for a partner that would rather spend time with his family than be out at the bars or with the “guys”.

I’m thankful for the many successes I’ve seen in my lifetime.  Career-wise, I’ve always climbed and stayed at the top…and for my age…that’s pretty amazing.

I’m thankful for inspiration that can only come from God…enthusiasm that can only be placed in me specially…

I’m thankful for meeting Leah, for a dream that has become a reality, for a hope that someday will actually transform into truth.

I’m thankful to be surrounded by fabulous friends; friends who would drop everything to be there for me, that support my crazy personality, my outlandish dreams…my wildly colorful imagination.  Anyone who is willing to to support me like they have; well they are amazing in themselves.

I am thankful for a family that has raised me to believe I can…and will do anything within my dreams.  Dream big!

And for IT ALL I thank God…for blessing me beyond measure or what I could possibly ever deserve.  Don’t think for a moment I would give anyone but you first praise.  AMEN!



I am thankful for my healthy and happy family.  My boys never cease to amaze and delight!  I have never felt such breathtaking love in my whole life!  I am so blessed to have a sweet and supportive husband who believes in family and is the best father!  And I’m just so thankful to have a man who stands by me through the crazy ups and downs that life loves to throw at us.  I am thankful for my amazing parents who I give credit to all of my successes in life.  And my little brother who is always just a phone call away!  For my friends (vintage and all) who listen to my zany ideas and tell me to go for it even when the boys are shouting in the background!  For Miss Trina who, in less than a year, has become a very close friend and confidant who probably knows what I’m thinking before I even think it…the best writing partner a girl could have!  And I’m thankful for “Stereo Hearts” featuring Adam Levine.  I am just so grateful of this life and where it’s taking us.  And I am so thankful for all of you who follow our blog.  These last three months have been the most inspiring of my life!
