40 Reasons to be Thankful

We all have so many reasons to be thankful! Obviously I am thankful for my friends and family – they truly are world class. I’m also thankful for these two cute boxer puppies we brought home in October – Mocha & Turbo! They have brightened our lives. And finally I’m thankful for my health and the ability to continuously support my body.

I thought I would come up with a list of 40 things that I am thankful for besides the above. Then I start thinking… I don’t want to come up with 40 literal ‘things’, I am thankful for things but also for activities and places too. I picked the four following categories: places, food/drinks, things, and finally, activities.

I considered putting in other bloggers I am thankful for, but that list would be very long and I would end up leaving someone out that has influenced me. So that one is a no go. One thing I will say about this list… it is obviously NOT all-inclusive and NOT in order of importance. Happy Thanksgiving!
