I love Thanksgiving. Not the food so much, except the potatoes and rolls, but the whole idea. So in the spirit of gratitude, I thought I would share some things that I'm grateful for:

I am grateful for my darling Lucas, who loves me every day no matter what. I'm grateful that he goes out of his way to make me happy and comfortable, even on my crazy days.

I'm grateful for the Gospel. I'm grateful for the knowledge that I am a daughter of God and that He loves me. I'm grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and especially for the knowledge of eternal families.

I'm grateful for these 2 tiny souls growing in me. We are so blessed, I can't help but feel completely overwhelmed with gratitude and joy each time I think of them. I'm also grateful that Luke is super excited to be a dad. He's been reading tons of books and studying everything he can get his hands on to learn about everything .... I love it.

I'm grateful for family and friends who are wonderful and supportive and I just love them so much. Lucas and I are extra lucky to have such great families and great friends.

airplane ride

One of my favorite things in the whole world is flying. It doesn't matter if it's a 21 hour flight to Beijing or a 45 minute flight to Boise. I love being in airports and airplanes and having a carry on with special snacks and magazines and my ipod.

I especially love when my flight ends up somewhere exciting and fun, and tomorrow is no exception. We're going to Portland to visit Andy, Emily, and their kiddos :)

I can't wait to meet baby Pepper, run around with Jude, and paint Sadie's toenails. Not to mention, they just bought a new (old) house and Lucas (and me I guess) is helping with some of the renovations. His dad will be there too, so it will be a mini family reunion, I'm so excited.

It's a short trip, but I'm in desperate need of a break from work and boys and everything and this will be just perfect.


PS My dear friend Julie had a baby this week! Isn't he the most darling little thing?? I want to squeeze him. San Fransisco is next on the travel agenda....
