Since Last Thanksgiving


Got engaged.

Completed a year of my MBA program.

Had a sibling move to Singapore.

Started a new job.

Went shopping too often.

Planned a wedding.

Ran a half marathon.

Donated my hair.

Went to a pet blogger conference in Ohio.

Got robbed by Mexican police.

Was in one wedding and attended three.

Watched one of my best friends become a mom.

Toured wine country.

Addressed a terrifying roof rat issue.

Recovered an escaping dog four times.

Learned what an escrow account is. And why I owe money to mine.

Developed stronger faith.

Spent the night in the E.R. while Jim lost his appendix.

Have tried to pick my battles and let more go.

Experimented with vegetarianism.

Road tripped to San Diego and Vegas.

Have been learning to count my blessings and understand what I’m really thankful for.
