  2. Having the health and endurance to run the 500 mini marathon 
  3. Another year with my horse Sam. He’s 22 and starting to show his age, which reminds me to cherish every second we spend together.
  4. Friends. I’ve shared so many wonderful memories with so many of them this year and feel so blessed to have each one in my life.
  5. My best friend Christina, this year we’ve gone through so much together. I don't want to image my life without her

  7. My mom…when no one else will listen, she’s always there.
  8. Celebrating my 21st birthday in North Carolina
  9. The best vacation of my life (Smokey Mountains)
  10. My job…that has slowly begun to turn into a career this year and given so much more purpose to my life
  11. These books…for helping my dig deeper in my personal study time each day.
  12. New beginnings. and believe me this year I have needed a lot of them

  15. My new found love for cooking…I have had so much fun in our kitchen this year.
  16. Electronics…I don’t over use them, but boy am I glad I have them.
  17. My schedule book. Since I started using one since Mayish, my life has been much more structured and I accomplish more. I don’t go anywhere without it.
  18. My boss…he’s practically my second dad.
  19. Fabulous Amish neighbors, I spend so much time at their house.
  20. Braces, I don’t like the way the feel or look. But the results I saw/am seeing this year are amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving!

p.s. I’m running in the Drum Stick Dash this morning…it’ll be cold but so fun. Christina’s joining me this year. It’s always a good way to start Thanksgiving, by helping others.


P.S> I’m missing this guy today…my first Thanksgiving in my life without my younger brother. This is when growing up isn’t fun….



  1. Those are some amazing things to be thankful for. I love the time of Thanksgiving. At the beginning of 2013 I started a Thankfulness journal and I am still doing it. It is so neat to look over the years and see all the things I am blessed with. I have SOOOO much to be thankful for. Thanksgiving is a time that reminds us of that. I try to not just be thankful around the holidays, but all year as well. Journaling thankfulness everyday is a great way to remember to thank God everyday. Even every breath is a gift from God. I am SO thankful to have you as a friend. :D ~Hannah
