Thankful Thursday

Greetings from sunny Park City, Utah!

As I spend some time with my parents, grandparents, husband and children I am reminded how important it is to spend quality time with family.

There are many things to be thankful for this week, however I will narrow it down:

  • family vacations
  • children who were relatively well-behaved during our 6 hours of flying time yesterday
  • being able to stay in a condo located on the ski run so my kids can watch the family ski past and wave
  • neighbors who house-sit and security cameras that allow us to monitor our house from anywhere
  • the doctors who took excellent care of my grandma last month after her stroke, allowing her to spend the week with us out west
  • warm Sorel boots that will keep my feet warm while horseback riding tomorrow

What are you thankful for this week?
