LIFESTYLE: Feeling thankful

Today I'm feeling thankful.
I've a lot to be thankful for if I'm completely honest, and although I've certainly been dealt my fair share of crappy days and unhappy endings, they're counterbalanced by some amazing things.

Today Dann and I celebrate three years married. Three whole years since I wore that huge ivory netted dress (which I still adore, but DEFINITELY do not fit into anymore) to marry the man who makes my life whole. It is still my favourite day of my life so far, very closely followed by telling Dann I was pregnant!

We've been very blessed over the years to have gotten where we are. We're stable, and happy and have good friends and a loving family. We're on the approach to the biggest change of our lives which I'm beyond excited about.

So I'm thankful. I'm thankful for the life I lead. The friends I have. The family I came from and was brought into. I'm thankful for my health. I'm thankful for that random night out in February 2008 where I drunkenly met a complete stranger and unbeknown to me met the love of my life. I'm thankful I can call him my husband, my best friend and the father to my baby, because boy is he one amazing husband and best friend, and he's going to be the best dad on the planet. I'm thankful for this blog where I can share my whole life and talk to you.

Here's to feeling thankful.
And happy three year anniversary Danny, my champion of the world.
