Thanksgiving & Apple Hill

This maybe the biggest post to date... but I have SO MUCH to be Thankful for, so I guess it's rather fitting. The pictures are from our recent trip up to High Hill Ranch at Apple Hill :) I'm going to interspese things that I am thankful for between the pictures. I hope you have your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving and take time to reflect on everything you can be thankful for!

I am thankful for my family. So thankful, I don't even know if being thankful for them cuts it... I would be lost with out them, I love them so much.

I am thankful for my parents and the Godly example they are to me. I hope I can be as good a parent to my own children someday!

I am thankful for my new brother in law and I am thankful that my sister Katie is married to such a great guy, a true man of God.

I am so thankful for my friends, new & old. The time I was able to spend with old friends this year was so treasured, old friends are invaluable. And the new friends I made this year are such a blessing to me, they already have influence my life in more ways than I can count.

I am thankful for the smallest dog with the biggest personality that I know of. Reese you're such a brat and yet such a heart breaker ;)

I am very thankful for two wonderful jobs. Working for my dad at his investment company and now my photography business that God continues to grow, it's so exciting! I am so blessed for God's provision from both!

I am thankful to live in America. Our country has been blessed with so much, and I pray that we remember the true reasons why our country is the nation it is.

I am beyond thankful for mine & my family's good health. My mom is doing so well, I can't even believe the improvement in her quality of life. It's a true miracle. And with so many people hurt by sickness & disease I try to not let a day go by without savoring having a happy, healthy family!

I am thankful that God created such a beautiful, amazing world for us to live in.

I am thankful for having a church where I have the freedom to gather with other believers and worship my God & Heavenly Father.

I am thankful that God has a perfect plan for my life, because if I was in charge I definitely would have made wrong choices and not be where I am today.

I am thankful for the little things like Dr. Pepper (or Mr. Pibb rather, haha), mashed potatoes w/gravy, chocolate chip cookie dough, sushi, and chocolate croissants. Well maybe they aren't so little, food plays a pretty big part of my life, haha!! ;)

Lastly, and most importantly, I am so thankful that my Savior Jesus Christ loved me so much that He sacrificed himself so that I will be able to spend eternity with Him in heaven. His extraordinary gift of grace just blows my mind, I do not deserve it yet He still takes pleasure in giving it to me.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
