What am I grateful for this year?
That is a question that I have had a lot of trouble focusing on or keeping top of mind the last year, especially the last three and half months, but even before that.
So, back to the point — what am I grateful for and where to begin?
First, I’m grateful for a wonderful husband. Zach is my best friend and has been for years, even before we were a couple. I’m happy he is in my life. I’m happy we got married this summer and made things official. Even though, I knew I would marry him on our first date.
I’m grateful for my family. My parents and brothers have been cornerstones my entire life, and I’m happy that has been expanded to my sister-in-law Lindy and niece Gabby.
I’m grateful that Zach and I don’t want for anything. We see a lot of poverty and struggling people here in Seattle. Even though he is in graduate school, we still have enough to cover our expenses with some money leftover every month to donate to causes we believe in and help others around us.
I’m grateful for the friends I have made here, the friends I found here that are from my childhood and the friends who travel long distances to see me.
But most of all, I’m really grateful that I got to meet Kate Middleton this year because, bucket list.
