Thankful Thursday

So it's Thursday already and I really wanted to participate in today's 'Thankful Thursday' link-up 1. because I will be MIA tomorrow and miss the Friday 5 link-up as we are supposed to be closing on our house so I will name 5 things and 2. because I have so much in my life right now that I am thankful for! Thanks for stopping by and thank you to our hosts Mia, Katie!


I am so thankful for my husband. Boy does that man not only see me at my best but a lot of the time at my worst! He is so quiet, calm and collected and some how got swept away by the storm that is JESSI haha so many of our dreams are coming true in such little time and it only makes me think that whatever the future holds will be absolutely perfect (with bumps of course..duh..)    :)



In that same sense, I am so thankful for both of our families. I'm not sure I could have married into a better one and I for sure know that mine means everything and more to me!



AND my dog-ter! We don't currently have children so miss Emma Jo is our world. We were tested in our faith back in September when we thought we lost her right before our wedding (you can read about it here!)

Adore her!!

Next I am extremely thankful for my full-time job (I do Wedding Planning on the side!) I work at a place where I basically know everyone from growing up here, pretty much have a teacher schedule without being faculty, have an overly laid-back and awesome boss that I have grown close with and more free time than most jobs should permit. I am very thankful for this place and though we have discussed maybe doing the SAHM route once children come, it will be hard to find anything else like it! Go HSC!

My little humble abode



Lastly, I am extremely thankful for hopefully hitting the ground running in the next chapter of our lives: moving into and renovating our FOREVER home. We have looked for a very long time for a home that would be able to meet all of our needs for years to come, babies to come, etc. and we are so incredibly thankful to have found it and be closing on it tomorrow. Also, the overwhelming support from the blogging community makes it that much more fun!! We have A LOT of work ahead of us to make it our own and we beyond thrilled! (we are weird and like that kind of stuff and strictly looked for old, historic fixer-upper types haha so here we go!)

Found this pic on a website where someone had previously done work on our home!
So happy to see what it can be once finished!!!!
