Thanksgiving 2012

I love my extended family. It's always a joy seeing my mom's side because everyone is hilarious, crazy, and so fun to be around. I can honestly say I laughed more than I didn't the few days I was in North Carolina. Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time and each year I appreciate it more. Hopefully these pictures will do a better job of explaining what I can't.

But before that, while we're on the topic of thankfulness, here are 26 things I'm thankful for. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are thankful not just one day of the year, but every day.

Affirmation that photography is what I should be doing
Bentley (my dachshund)
Christmas (it's coming soon and is such a happy time of year)
Differences between me and other people; it's what helps us learn
Electronics (so materialistic, I know; I just love them)
Food because it's my favorite
God and his everlasting love
Inspiration because I'd be nowhere without it 
Jeans because I wear them every day
Leadership in others is something I admire so much
Nature's beauty and how it awes me each day
Opportunities I've had in the past four months 
Photography, of course
Travel, something I hope to do more
Understanding people (people who understand) 
Vivaciousness that lights up a room 
Woods because they are so peaceful and contain beautiful living creatures
XL sweaters that keep me warm on these cold November days
Years that I've been alive to enjoy
Zero broken bones or serious sicknesses (for me)

Birthday time!!
