So much to be thankful for.

I know, I know…Thanksgiving was a week ago. Tardy as it may be, I just couldn’t let the holiday come and go this year without a blog post on the subject. It has been an amazing year for me. Below is what I’m most Thankful for:

Pat. for his endless energy with our son, his commitment to his family, his sense of humor, and his unwavering patience and support this past year as I started my photography business. Having someone believe in you is truly the greatest gift. I scored big time when I said yes.

Konstandino, for his long curly hair, his refusal to participate in circle time, his up-for-anything attitude, and for the endless challenge and love that he offers us each day. It’s a better life with him around.

A much better life…

I cannot remember who said this, but one of my favorite quotes has always been: “To know when you have enough is to be rich without measure”.

Happy Thanksgiving!
