This year I’ve had a lot to be thankful for, a loving family, caring friends, mentors and especially my encouraging husband who is an amazing person and my best friend. He’s an inspiring leader who has helped me achieve my goals. He has read every version of everything I’ve written and proofed countless rewrites without complaint. Together we’ve worked on home projects without spilling the paint and creative projects without spilling opinions.

So, on my eight-year anniversary, which falls two days before Thanksgiving, I am grateful for my husband and the gift he is to me. Happy anniversary.
