i am the luckiest

This time of year never fails to remind me just how very lucky I am. 
I have two amazing sisters and the kindest, most generous, most loving parents in the world.
I have a man whom I love with all my heart and who truly completes me.

^^^ My family on Nikki's wedding day...Ryan on the day we got engaged

Ryan flies in tomorrow morning, and I'm so excited to be able to spend the holiday with him.
The only one missing will be my baby sis, Kristina, because law school finals are kicking her butt.

I am so thankful for a family that is close-knit and loves one another dearly.
I am so thankful for my almost-husband who has perfectly become an extension of a family we love.
I am thankful for the amazing food we're going to gorge ourselves on tomorrow.
And, truly, I am thankful for all of YOU

I started this personal blog, not really expecting much, but I've met so many wonderful people from all walks of life. 
I have met many MilSO's with whom I can relate and identify, 
and I've met people that I'm absolutely certain would be my best friends in real life.
I'll be MIA tomorrow stuffing my face, but I just wanted to say...

Happy Thanksgiving! 
I love all your faces. A lot.
