Thanks for Everything


2016 has been – and continues to be – a total whirlwind of a year.  My limits of patience and tolerance have been tested.  I’ve had to come up with creative solutions for everything from planning a wedding on a budget to building a business from scratch.  I have had moments where I felt I was failing, where wonderful things seemed too good to be true, and everything in between.  In the spirit of the holiday weekend that is now coming to a close, I’d like to express my gratitude.

To the days that left me feeling worn out, but not quite broken.  To the extraordinary person I get to share my life and home with for being ever supportive and patient.  To my family – old and new, and friends – old and new, for being my amazing network of love and trust.  Despite all the days I felt lost and like I had nothing to stand on, I know what I have is pretty great, and that I’m a lucky girl.

The year isn’t over yet, but still I am so grateful for all of the lessons it has taught me.  Lessons in humility, hard work, perseverance.  Deep wounds have had time to heal, and I know now that any problem I face will someday be a thing of the past.  The best is yet to come.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!  Now, who’s ready for Monday?
