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.

NEW BIKE DAY!!!! Can you tell I’m excited? I am now the lucky owner of a 2018 Specialized Stumpjumper. I am not going to get all geeky and go through the specs because then no one would read my blog!
Our bike-moon ended in Bar Harbor, Maine and we were lucky enough to spend a week exploring. Bar Harbor has a lot to offer! If you’re planning a 2017 trip, add Acadia to the list.

On our way to Arizona for the Thanksgiving holiday, my mom and I stopped at ARRIVE Palm Springs. We showed up around 8:30pm – it was late and dark.

During our honeymoon, we spent a rest day in Santa Fe, New Mexico where we chose to stay at a nice hotel, La Fonda on the Plaza. When we entered our room, we saw a bottle of champagne – what a surprise! Okay, this should be attributed to our great friends Marissa & Drew. After imbibing a bit, we went to dinner at The Shed, where we had fantastic margaritas!
