This year I started a personal project to work through 52 weeks of gratefulness. There is so much happening in the world today that it can be easy to get lost in the negativity and troubles of life. I want to make a point in 2017 to remember all of the things I have to be grateful for - all the things that have shaped who I have become.
For week one I am grateful for my husband, Austin. We met early in high school and ever since he has been my best friend. Austin is kind, loving, incredibly patient, supportive beyond belief and well grounded. But beyond that he makes the best pot of coffee, always gets us places even when I give bad directions, loves all the pets I insist we have, photographs along side me, and further more he is awesome to snuggle with at movie night. It wasn't long after we started dating that I knew without a doubt in my mind that this would be the man I would marry and 7 years later we did just that. Standing on the grass with the sun on our backs and the mountains behind us we got married surrounded by our closest friends and family. Over the last year and a few months of being married we have had amazing experiences and grown so much together - and I can't wait for the next 60+ years! Here's to the people in our lives who love us and make us better people! I hope this reminds you to tell them how much they mean to you!
