30-Days of being thankful. Days 1 - 6

I have gotten on the band wagon and have decided to do the 30-days of thanks challenge this year.

Since it is already November 6th, I'll play catch up.

Day 1:
I am thankful to God that my sister is engaged to be married to a man who truly cares about her and who makes her happy! Yes, we ARE the United Nations family! :-). Aren't they just the cutest? This was the other secret I wasn't allowed to share until all family members had been notified.

Day 2:
I am thankful, for my beautiful and healthy daughter who in approximately 24-hours will become a toddler! That year FLEW BY!

Day 3:
I am thankful for the adventures of the past. Going through all my pictures from my travels, it makes me very thankful for the good times and also appreciate all of the fun future adventures I'll be having with my family as we create out own memories.

Day 4:
I am thankful for my awesome husband. He rocks! Clearly, JOE agrees from the way she is looking at her daddy.

Day 5:
I am thankful for JOE's nanny. She really is THE BEST! We couldn't have asked for a better person to trust with the care of our daughter. She has truly become a member of the family and we are very thankful for her!

Day 6:
I am thankful for God given talent. I love that I can envision things and somehow, I am able to bring it to life. I also enjoy doing these things which makes it so much more fun and relaxing!
