{Sunday Social - I Am Thankful!}

Happy Sunday everyone! I am super excited for the short week I have at school (just Monday & Tuesday!) and than a break!

This week's Sunday Social with Ashley & Neely is about all the things you are thankful for. After all, this Thursday is the day we give thanks, although we should be doing that all year round!

I'm thankful for a loving & supportive family. I'm the baby of 5 kids and the only girl, so I have always had my brothers watching out for me. We may get on each others nerves from time to time (in what family does that NOT happen?!) but I know they are always there for me.

I'm thankful for my friends. I always had a small circle of friends growing up and to me, I always thought it was better to have a small circle of friends you REALLY got along with then the friends you were merely acquaintances. They all "get" me and have my back. I wouldn't trade any of them for the world!

I'm thankful that I have been blessed to work with a wonderful department at the school where I work. I work with 5 different teachers on a daily basis and I love it because it helps me see different teaching styles. I have a great chairperson and I feel like they are my second family, especially after everything they did for me on my birthday. I know I will miss them when I eventually get my own fulltime teaching job!

I'm thankful for three little munchkins who call me Aunt Kristin. The best days ever were when each of them were born (12-6-04, 9-11-06, 4-4-09). They bring such joy to my life.

I'm thankful for my education. Despite being in debt, I would not change it for anything. After all, going to SUNY New Paltz, I met some of my best friends there! It helped shape me into the language teacher I am today.

I'm thankful for coffee, because without it, I would certainly NOT be functioning during the day!

I'm thankful for my little sweet munchkin dog, Lily. While she may have her psycho moments at times, she is fun to have. She will never fill the void in my heart from Shadow, my last dog, but she puts a smile on my face. After all, she lets me put a Christmas hat on her!


  1. The dog and kids! They're all too cute!

  2. Coffee! I hate to admit that I'm addicted, but it's true. I'm thankful for it, too!
