– Spread the love and challenge 5 other blogs to take part.

5 People I’m Thankful For

  • Lindsay Wineinger:  She is an amazing friend, both in partnering with me in a fun new blog series (Letters Between Friends) and in planning a fundraiser for me.  I don’t know how I possibly deserve her.
  • Taylor Swift:  Gotta be real, what would life be without her 1989 album?  My road trip would be a lot more interminable, at the very least.
  • Stephanie Broach:  I’m still grieving the end of our weekend in Alabama.  I had so much fun with her!  I keep finding myself wanting to talk to her for hours, but it is no longer quite so easy.
  • Neil Patrick Harris:  He is awesome at everything, and I’m so glad he shares his awesomeness via TV, books, and movies.
  • Jennie & Dusty Hughes:  Staying with the Hughes family means lots of cute kids, but I’ll be honest – I’m mostly there for the adults.  There is always so much laughter, insults, and deep conversations after the kids go to bed.

5 Things I’m Thankful For

  • iPhones: Roadtripping is so much more enjoyable with a single device that allows me to talk to friends, navigate roads, listen to music, and listen to audiobooks.
  • Animals:  Seriously, nothing makes me happier than a warm cuddly animal that lets me pet it.
  • Sleep:  Every night I get my nine hours of sleep is a glorious night.
  • Hot Beverages:  Coffee, tea, hot chocolate?  I could drink them constantly.
  • External Processing:  Lindsay (see above for more thankfulness) linked me with the term, and it is so awesome to know that when making decisions or thinking through possibilities, I need to talk it out.  Seeing different friends every few days means I get to have the same conversations over and over, which is sometimes very helpful in confirming my beliefs and desires.

5 Blogs:

Thanksgiving is right around the corner!  It was fun to kick start a season of thankfulness with this challenge.  Thanks, White Walls & Wanderlust!
