Being so very thankful.

 I'm getting to the home stretch of finishing college and Matt has been getting ready for grad school auditions. This combination has not been very fun. I am however, grateful for this education journey and very excited to see where we will go.
November is a prime time to think about gratitude. This year I decided to use facebook as a way to broadcast this gratitude. Every day this month I have said what I was thankful for. So since I haven't updated the blog lately here is a compilation of those posts.

  1. Too many things to list here, but my family and the gospel top the list.
