Where do I even begin?
For starters, there are things that I am thankful for every day and while I don't discount them, they go into a short list here:
2. My five senses.
4. Shelter, food, clothing, a car, a job.
5. Love and happiness.
Now on to the main event: people. None of the aforementioned blessings would matter at all if it wasn't for great people in my life. And here they are:
Family. I love my family! This year we have the addition of Mr. Kevin and it's pretty exciting to have a new brother. At the end of this year, we'll have yet another addition in the form of an itty bitty baby!
Boyfran. See this post. (Also his awesome, welcoming family!)
The girls. I’ve known these ladies since I was 9 or 10 years old. Enough said.
The girls. These are the people who made college so exciting. We shared school, parties, and
Stinkytown Dinkytown. I even got to live with…all of them.
Show-goers. Music is the air I breathe and since I have the need to go to a bazillion shows, it’s been awesome to have accomplices.
HK boyz. These are the people who I spent almost every day of my time abroad with. They are all hilarious and insanely smart. I’ve gotten to see some of them since we’ve been back, but I’m still waiting for a reunion with the international ones.
HK penpals. After three years, these girls still write to me! You don’t know how great it is to get mail from them, adorned with silly Hello Kitty stickers.
HK people in general. Reunions are my faaavorite and it's super fun to have friends around the world.
Bookclub. My fellow
nerds literary aficionados keep my brain sharp and are fun to meet for dinner every month. Still waiting on that magnum bottle of wine.
You. Whoever you are.
Every person has added to my life in such a special way, and I really am grateful for each and every one. (Also the ones not featured here, who I maybe haven't seen in a while). Here is to more communication, more reunions, and remembering the awesome times we’ve shared. Happy Thanksgiving people, you rock my world.
