So today, I'm going to talk about what I'm thankful for.
one // This man. I'm thankful this man loves me for exactly who am - flaws and all. He knows that I get a little mean when I'm hungry but doesn't hold it against me. He knows that I HATE to clean the kitchen and vacuum so he does it most of the time so I don't have to. He just laughs and we get take out when I accidentally burn or undercook dinner because I was rushing to get it done after a long day of work and fitting in a workout. He supports my career goals and always pushes me to do more. He knows not to touch my mint chocolate chip ice cream unless it's specifically offered to him.
two // These two hooligans. Zuko and Ellie keep us entertained every day. They both have such distinct, sassy and ridiculous attitudes that absolutely kill me. I'm so thankful that we have such well behaved (well.. most of the time) animals that love us even when we accidentally forget to feed them occasionally. I'll be even more thankful for them when they one day become friends. We'll get there.
I still hate waking up early and Monday's - but once I get to go work, I'm so happy to be. My team is amazing and so supportive of each other and both of my bosses are incredible. Plus, I work for the most well known brand in the world. It doesn't get much better.
four // Friends. I have some amazing, loving friends that I can call at any hour of the day. Though my two best friends live far away, that doesn't change our friendship at all and I'm so thankful for that.

This year I've made some awesome new friends, too, and I don't know what I'd do without them. Friendships as an adult are hard but this year I've really learned it's the quality of friendships, not the number that matter.
five // My family. Although this election cycle has been rough on us, they are still my parents and family and we all love each other regardless. We are celebrating Thanksgiving next Saturday because all of my mom's siblings will be in town (from Hawaii, Asheville, Wilmington and Georgia) for the first time in awhile and we wanted to spend the holiday together. I'm thankful we all love each other enough to something like that just to be together.
