I'm thankful that my sister, my mom, and I all arrived safely in the Midwest for our girls' weekend, and that both of my flights left on time and arrived ahead of schedule…that certainly doesn't happen every day!
I'm thankful for my mom, who is so unbelievably generous, for my sister, who always makes me laugh, and for the time to linger over good wine and even better conversation with these lovely ladies.
I'm thankful my husband took the kids "camping" in the backyard - they roasted marshmallows over the grill and then spent the night cuddled up in sleeping bags in our tent - so that I wouldn't have to. (I'm kind of afraid to camp here in Texas because I'm worried the critters might attack me in the night…)

phone is older than Hallie and takes terrible photos.
I'm thankful for safe travels home from a wonderful vacation, and for a husband who kept my children healthy and happy while I was away.
On Veterans Day, I'm thankful for the men and women who have served or are currently serving our country as members of the United States Armed Forces.

I'm thankful for the cooler weather (though I wish I would have dressed Hallie a little more warmly when I sent her off to school this morning), primarily because it provided me with the perfect opportunity to rock my new leather jacket!
I'm thankful for the end of baseball season, not because I didn't enjoy it, but because my Tuesdays and Thursdays/Fridays just opened up. Bring on the family dinners, evening holiday traditions, and early bedtimes!
