Happy Thanksgiving! This year has flown by, and there’s so much I’m thankful for. As you know, I went through a three month gap where I wasn’t posting regularly. I had too many life changes happening to count in that short span of time, but the outcome has been wonderful. I’ve been enjoying life and soaking in all of the positive (and negative) changes around me, and I’m thankful for it all.

My sister and I have lived in different states for about six years now, and different cities for nine. She finally moved back to NC this fall, and I couldn’t be happier to have my best friend within a 30 minute drive away. She probably understands me more than anyone else in the world, and I’m so so thankful to have that special bond.

I’m so incredibly lucky to have a strong bond with both of my parents who have taught me everything I know today. They taught me love, compassion, fairness, kindness, and so much more I owe them for. I love being able to see them as often as I do.

I couldn’t live without the supportive, loyal friends I have. They’ve been with me through thick and thin and when I’ve needed them the most.

tgiving travelTravel

I’ve been fortunate enough to travel every year! This year I’ve been to NY, the Bahamas, Florida, and short day trips in between. Traveling and visiting new places has undoubtedly opened my horizon infinitely! I definitely have the bug and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
