Thankful for a Kick@$$ Year: A Photo Essay

What a kickass year 2012 has been. I know, it's not exactly the end of the year yet, but when I woke up this morning it hit me that it was actually Thanksgiving. I mean, when did the end of November even get here??! Can someone explain that to me?!

Even with the speed that 2012 has gone by, it has been such an amazing point in my life and I'm entirely grateful to so many things and people. Rather than go off on page-long tangents about how grateful I am, I'd rather share some of these photos from 2012 with you to better demonstrate how damn lucky I've been - and to demonstrate to every person who has been a part of this journey how appreciative I am that life works out the way it does.

And yes, I've officially turned my Christmas music on while writing this. It's Thanksgiving and that means no holds barred to getting into the Christmas Spirit. The only thing I'm missing is my mom's pumpkin cheesecake. Dreamers will dream, right? Ok, let's do this. Here are a few of the things I'm most thankful for this year:

My Crazy Family 

Near or far, I wouldn't be where I am without my family. They are what keep me going and remind me how lucky I am to call this crazy clan my own :)



My Colorado Family

I never would've guessed that moving to Colorado would mean SO MANY amazing new people to call friends. And I wouldn't have it any other way.


Someone Who Just Gets It 

Need I really say more? All I know, is that I can't seem to wipe the mile-wide grin off of my face. First world problems ;)


Everyday Moments 

Whether I'm traveling or I'm home, these are the moments that strike me at the most mundane of times - making me realize no matter where I'm at, I have so much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving! 

May your holiday be filled with as much happiness, good food and memories as mine! Wishing you and yours all the best :)
