I Am Thankful For

Everyone has been posting daily status updates on Facebook about what they are thankful for.  I am terrible about keeping up on daily tasks, but I'm happy to do a mid-month update...because I do have a lot that I am thankful for!

  1. My house: As the days get cooler, I am so grateful to have a roof over my head and especially grateful to have a house that Ryan and I can grow into over the years.
  2. My cats: I have two pretty awesome felines and I may sound like a crazy cat lady, but I can't imagine coming home to a house without them.
  3. My small town: I live in a pretty cool place, full of pretty cool people.  And it's especially awesome that my parents, Ryan's parents, and my sister and her husband all live in town with me.
  4. My parents: I have some pretty incredible parents who have showered me with love throughout my entire life.  They are supportive and caring and I couldn't ask for anyone else.
  5. My in-laws:  I could not be luckier that Ryan's parents are as awesome as they are.  They are compassionate and super fun!  We love spending time with them, which is more than some of my friends could say about their in-laws.
  6. My job: I work with some pretty awesome people at a great company and I continue to enjoy what I'm doing.
  7. My little brother: He can often annoy me, but I love him to pieces.  He makes me laugh, he loves a good movie night, and he may be 13, but he still says "I love you." :)
  8. My sister:  She is my role model and my best friend.  I am extremely lucky to be so close to my sister, as friends and living in the same town.
  9. My brother-in-law: He is pretty smart, extremely caring, and has a great heart.  I am so happy that Emily and Brad have found each other, Brad has become an awesome addition to our family.
  10. My friends: I couldn't possibly do a breakdown on each of my awesome friends, but I love you all so much!  You all continue to impress me and be there for me when I need it, near and far.
  11. My hair stylist: I have an awesome stylist who does an awesome job, pampers the shit out of my, and chargers half the price of everyone else.
  12. My passport: I have been to the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and Mexico.  I can't wait to see where it takes me next!
  13. My home state: I am admittedly a little obsessive about my love of Iowa...but I love Iowa!  I am lucky to live in a state where gay marriage is legal, property taxes are low, and education is a priority.
  14. My husband: How could I have gotten so lucky?  Ryan is my best friend and loves me unconditionally.  We try to make each other happy, make each other laugh, and encourage each other.
What are you thankful for this month?  I plan to do another update on Thanksgiving...because I am lots more to be thankful for! :)
