Thankful Thursday #2

Happy Thursday!!

We're another week closer to Thanksgiving!

Thankful Thursdays 2016

Time to take a few minutes to reflect on the things I'm thankful for this week.

Living in Las Vegas. I'm so grateful to live in a place that is so close to absolutely gorgeous hiking trails. Some of my favorites are Red Rock National Conservation Area.

Valley of Fire State Park.

And Cottonwood Valley.

My husband, Jeff. We are two peas in a pod! We enjoy all the same things. He doesn't watch/follow/enjoy sports; neither do I. We enjoy the same types of movies and TV shows. And, of course, we have very similar philosophies on life, politics, etc. But we're also just different enough that we have great conversations and are able to learn from each other. Married nearly 12 years now, I can't imagine anyone else who would be a better fit for me.

My dog, Sallie. Well, she's just the cutest thing and makes me smile every. single. day. Sometimes I catch a glimpse of whatever crazy position she's gotten into, and my heart just melts a little. She's been with us just over 8 years. Jeff immediately fell in love her big, brown eyes at the Animal Humane Society all those years ago, and I am forever grateful that he convinced me that we should adopt her. And yes, I tell him that all the time.

What are you most thankful for today?

    1. Thanks, Katie! I hope the beauty around me never ceases to amaze. The mountains in the distance are breathtaking every day I drive to work.
