plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

A post in which I ramble on about the things I am thankful for.

But, really, I am thankful every. single. day. Not just on Thanksgiving. This year, in particular, I could not feel more blessed.

Life has been good to my husband and me. We were blessed to both finish our MBA programs within a month of each other. B accepted a new job, which had us relocate to our favorite state (Colorado) not even a month ago. We celebrated one blissful year of marriage. I relaunched my planning business.

I am thankful for our health. Our love. Our dogs. Family. Friends. The weather. Purely thankful for our life.

A huge thanks to all of our family and friends for being incredibly supportive during this last year. B and I took a huge leap by picking up and moving to a new city in a new state, and our family and friends have been 100% behind it since the first time we brought it up. We are thankful for their phone calls and emails. Their Facebook updates and photos. Their visits. Their love. Their support.

And, to you all of my readers. Thank you for being fabulous readers. For visiting each day and showing your support. Thank you for being you, and staying true to you! I wish you all a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday. One filled with love, support and giving.

  1. Love these!!

  2. I love the little pop of red they used with their flowers. Just simple and sweet. And I love that the photographer was able to find the ferris wheel that matched everything else 🙂 It was meant to be!
