What I’m Thankful For (Happy Thanksgiving!)

I’m a list maker. I love lists. I have a list of blog posts that are coming, a list of baby items that we need, a to-do list for the day and the week, but somehow, I’ve never been the person to make a thankful list.

It’s bursting with joy and thankfulness, and I just can’t keep it inside. So for the first time ever, here is what I’m thankful for.
