We both have such supportive and loving families (immediate and extended) and we could never express to all of them how thankful we are. We love getting to go visit everyone and especially love when they come visit us! It was very nice to move away after we got married so we could start our lives together just the 2 of us without constant input or "drop-ins" from family, but it would have been nicer to live closer to everyone than we have been.
8. Our Home
I'm not specifically talking about the house we live in, although I'm very grateful for it, but specifically for how we have made each of the 3 places we have lived in since moving to Amarillo a home. When we lived in the apartment it was a little harder, but in both houses it has been nice to put our hearts into making them feel like home. The main thing I have always wanted in our place of residence was for everyone who came over to feel welcome, comfortable and totally at home. I am so blessed that it is now my full time job to make our house a home!
9. Pregnancy Timing
I have told Tim over and over again how thankful I am that I am not majorly pregnant during the hot summer months! I definitely love winter and the cold weather so much more than the heat. My hands and feet would already swell up so much in the summer, I'm just glad that I don't have to worry about it being all that worse because of the heat. Now I know by the time I'm 9 months pregnant I'm going to be ready to get this baby out of me, but at least it won't be because it's 110 degrees outside and I can't walk because my feet are two volleyballs!!
