Thankful, so very, very thankful!

Wow... what a year! I have so very, very much to be thankful for!

This time last year, my husband and I had just visited beautiful Barcelona...

Had an amazing trip, saw gorgeous sites, ate incredible food, and met some new friends with an unforgettable night in a local cava bar.

Visited the amazing Costa Brava and Gerona, and then spent Thanksgiving in Germany...

Enjoying their incredible Christmas Markets...

drinking lots of gluhwein (very, very HOT wine) and visiting a few castles.

Then on January 9th... we found out news that would change our lives forever.
And I went from this...(this is me at 20 weeks)

to this. This is me at 40 weeks, swollen and miserable in the Florida heat!
(How scary is this picture!)

And got the best gift in the world...

I have wonderful friends, an amazing family, and an INCREDIBLE husband. And I am SO thankful to do what I love every day. To have incredible, amazing clients that were patient with me during my maternity leave. My clients were so sweet and so happy for my new family and it just made me feel even luckier.

AND on top of all of this... last night, I slept for over 6 hours straight, which hasn't happened in so very, very long. :)
On this Thanksgiving, I can barely begin to count my blessings and all that I have to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
