things i'm thankful for: day 1

WARNING: this post is mushyville, population 1.  don't say i didn't tell you.

i am beyond grateful for my wonderful amazeballs beau.  this past week was so, so great.  i fell in love with him even more.  we had so much fun at home with his family. we ate ourselves silly at thanksgiving dinner {my pecan pie was a HUGE hit with his dad and his sister's boyfriend}, played a rowdy couple of rounds of board games with the other thanksgiving guests, did absolutely nothing on black friday other than watch college football, had "double date" day saturday with his parents {chick-fil-a + target + a double-feature of 'sleepless in seattle' and 'white christmas'}, tailgated and watched the ravens win last night, and just generally enjoyed one another's company.  i loved spending time with him and his family in his natural habitat, if you will, and getting to know all of them a little better.  and i may have indulged in my favorite high-maintenace starbucks holiday drink almost every day {we don't have a starbucks anywhere near small town, va so this is a big deal}.

last week, more than any before, made me realize how blessed i am to have him in my life.  he calls me on my bullshit, but he loves me for it.  he makes me laugh all the time, but he knows when to be serious.  he takes such good care of me and protects me, but encourages my independent streak.  he is so good to his family.  and he ain't too bad on the eyes either!  i am a lucky girl.
