“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.” ~ Dr. Robert Holden
Day 18: Thankful for a short work week! Only 3 days of work and then it’s off to Huntington Beach and San Diego for a loooong weekend!
Day 19: Today I am thankful for my friendship with my freshman college roommate Caitlin Buggy! Little did I know that I would luck out with one of the greatest roommates, but that we would remain friends throughout college and after! Caitlin and I lived together a few years in college and for two years after college in a sweet downtown Santa Barbara apartment. She was also one of my bridesmaids in my wedding. We have shared so many laughs, tears, travel adventures (NYC), and fun memories. I love her dearly and am beyond grateful for our friendship. Here’s to more years for fun!
Day 20: Thankful for the rain!
Day 21: I am so thankful for my nephew Colton. He turned 2 today and we got to celebrate with him in San Diego! Colton had fun getting pushed in his car by Uncle Chris, playing with some play dough and he LOVED his Clifford stuffed animal and new books! Happy Birthday Colton! We love you so much! Also Happy Birthday to my sister-in-law Kristin as well! How lucky are they to share the same birthday?!
Day 22: Today I am thankful for getting to spend time with Chris’ mom and making a yummy Thanksgiving dinner.
Day 23: Grateful for awesome breakfast burritos and a sunny day in Southern California!
Day 25: Running water and being able to take a hot/relaxing shower! Sometimes it’s all about the small things!
Day 26: Today I am so thankful to become an auntie again…this time to TWIN girls! Meet Kendall Rose and Madison Isabel who arrived via c-section. One weighed 6lbs. and the other 6lbs. 4 oz. and 21 inch. long! Uncle Chris and I are beyond excited that you are here and can’t wait to spoil you rotten. I love them so much and can’t wait to meet them in person this December. They are so lucky to have an awesome big brother too! What a happy and joyous day! Congrats Mom & Dad you are now a family of FIVE!!!
Day 27: Today I am thankful for getting to have lunch with my friend Tori. We actually went to lunch yesterday, but I still wanted to include her in this post. Yesterdays thankfulness clearly HAD to go to the birth of my TWIN nieces hehe. Anyway, Tori and I first became friends when worked together at UC Merced and then at Stanford. She now lives in Seattle and works at UW. I’m so glad that we got to catch up in person while she was in CA for Thanksgiving and that we have stayed friends! Miss ya girl! Check out her blog here.
Only a few more days left of the 30 Days of Thankfulness! I’m looking forward to some time off from work, turkey and getting to see friends and family!
