This morning, I sat down to write this post about all the things I am thankful for. After all…it is Thanksgiving. But as I started to think about all the things I am so lucky to have in my life…there was one common theme. One common feeling that encompasses this whole day. Today I feel full. So full that I feel like life is busting at the seem…in the best possible way.
There’s the obvious kind of full. You know..full of stuffing and exorbitant amounts of pumpkin pie. But more than that I am so full of happiness. I was sitting on the plane next to Gary…on our way back from our wedding-cation (my new word for when I vacation while shooting a wedding) and I leaned over and told him I was excited to get back to work. Who gets excited to work? I feel like I have a business that fills me up so much and that is something I will always be thankful for. Something I don’t ever want to take for granted and something that I will never let go of.
I also feel like my glass if filled to the top with amazing friends. The most amazing friends. I honestly couldn’t ask for better people in my life. Rooting for me…always in my corner…and having a blast along the way. They make my life what it is and I don’t know that I’ll ever fully be ever to make them understand that. I have a family that I am actually excited to see on a regular basis. We make our vastly different lives all fit together and I think that can be pretty rare. And little Katharine…there are just no words. Still pretty obsessed with her. She may or may not be getting cowboy boots for Christmas. I mean…because she obviously needs them. And on top of it all…I have someone who goes through this crazy life with me. Every step of the way. Right by my side pushing me forward and never letting me doubt myself…not even for a second.
So yes…today I am thankful for a lot of things. But most of all I am thankful for a life that is full. Full of people and pie and dreams so big I haven’t even dreamt them yet…but having everything I could ever need to make them all come true…
