What I am thankful for…

Sorry to go all sappy on you but this is how I am feelin today.

Well, Thanksgiving was awesome. I spent the week in and out of my Nissan X-Terra, Fredreicha, in the Washington DC metro area with family and friends.

I have a renewed appreciation for my friends at home. They are the most forgiving, loving, and amazing group of people that I know. So many things have happened between myself and various friends from home and yet things don’t change so much, as they do evolve. The friendships I have at home have adapted and for the most part, I am able to go home, see people and pick right up where I left off. I like this. And not only that, but they accepted my fiance with open arms. We had such an amazing time with my family and friends at home this past week. I am thankful for those people that I was able to see and spend time with. I am thankful for the ones that I wasn’t able to meet up with and see also (as they are still very good friends, just missed them this past week due to family activities).

I am thankful for my parents who are amazing people, two of the most amazing and caring people I know and am grateful to have one awesome set of parents who are proud of me and want me to succeed.

I am thankful to my older brother (we are 14 months apart) for a lot of reasons. He is hilarious and intelligent and considerate (thoughtful even). I am most thankful for him, because he showed me this hilarious video:

I am thankful for the people who made time to see me, for the roads not sucking way bad and making my 20 hour drive worse than a 20 hour drive was already… and I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to bring my dog back with me.

I am thankful that I have an understanding and loving fiance who met my extended family and who made the 20 drive with me (there and another 20 hour drive back) and didn’t kill me.

And I am thankful for my good friends out here who welcomed me back last night with big smiles and stories. Amazing people, everyone in my life seems to be.

Hope everyone had a good week and a good thanksgiving. I miss DC.
