Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving you guys!!

And happy start to a holiday season that is hopefully restful & wonderful, and full of all the things that matter most this year for you all!

Today we are SO thankful! Thankful for our friends and family, for our extremely fluffy dog, for our pretty new windows & siding and most importantly a roof over our head. For seeing HUGE crazy dreams come true this year, and for the down time to look back on it and enjoy it all. For our health and the health of those we love. For clean sheet Tuesday and soft places to land. For you wash and I’ll dry, and getting to stand shoulder to should as we build this life together. For Netflix, and the hours of entertainment & distraction it has brought us this year while were editing or working away (Amen!). For marriage and our couples and love. For our one light set up and the umpteen times it has saved our butts this year. For the privilege of helping & teaching others. For every single email we’ve gotten from someone just taking the time to say thanks. Or to be brave enough to ask. For the friends that we have made here or over on our Facebook page, but most importantly the ones that we then, through that, got to meet in real life. For Boston Market pot pies & sweet potato casserole. Lord knows how many of those we have had this year when we got home from a trip and there was nothing in the refrigerator. And oh by the way, I’m thankful for our brand new refrigerator. I promise to try to put some real food in it soon. I’m thankful for my husband, my best friend, who will come and get the spiders…and then put them outside because I don’t want him to kill them. And I’m thankful for God. For how He has pulled me closer to Him this year than He ever has before, and the work that He’s doing in me and through me. Truly, being a light in this world for Him is one of the greatest honors of my life.

And for this and so much more, I find myself with more to be thankful for than I could ever deserve. And that right there, is the miracle.

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving you guys!
SO much love,

**And a HUGE thanks to the incredible Liz & Ryan for grabbing these pictures of us while we were up in Maine!! Love you guys!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you!! I´m grateful for so many things, like a huge party last night, with over 40 people from 7 countries and four turkeys. :) And you and your art of forming words into something that means a lot to many people.
    Hugs from Germany!
