Wow, where has this year slipped away to! It seems like just yesterday, we were celebrating Christmas of 2013, and now here we are on the verge of this years holiday season. For me, it can be hard to take time to stop and truly be thankful for the little things around me. This year has been a roller coaster of events and celebrations that I wasn't completely prepared for. So, today I wanted to stop and just be thankful. 

With Thanksgiving just a week away, here are a few of my favorite photos from last years Thanksgiving celebration.

This picture may just look like an ordinary porch with a barn in the background, but let me tell you, It is so much more than that!! This porch is where I said "I Do!" and that barn is where we had our first dance, our first meal as husband and wife, and where we shared our special day with our family and friends!

Here is a little peak of what it looked like on our wedding day.

He is secretly reminiscing.... I hope :)

Oakley was only 5 months old here, he had jumped off the back of our couch and broke his little leg. It was so pitiful but he didn't care, he would act like nothing was there. 

And, this man! I am just thankful for everything about him, and for his life!

A Year of Thankfulness:

My dad is my best friend, next to KJR, and in August I almost lost my dad very unexpectedly. It was one of the craziest times of my life. I am thankful for his life today, and I am also very thankful for the way the Lord led me to handle everything. It was very out of character for me, however it was what my mom and my dad needed and I am very thankful for it. 

 KJR is just amazing, sappy I know... He has been there for me through all the ups and downs this year. He was so sweet and took tons of photos at my college graduation, and he selflessly gave of himself to help me and my family.

What are you thankful for? I encourage you to take a moment today and stop and just be thankful today. Let someone in your world know how much they mean to you today.
