This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) My husband coming home!!!  Lance finally gets home from his Turkey trip tonight and  While my time home alone has been full and eventful, it's never the same when he's not here.  I'm looking forward to hearing about his trip and catching him up on the happenings of Louisville since he's been gone... but mostly I'm just looking forward to living life together again. 

2) My first Christmas in July party!  Last night's Christmas party was a huge success... about 25 women came... which was more than I was expecting... always a happy surprise.  It was the perfect excuse to meet new people while eating gingerbread cookies and strawberry santas.  I had the cinnamon candles burning and the Christmas music blaring... all while it was a hot 105 degrees outside.  It.was.perfect.  Full review coming soon.

3) A few days off.  I'm taking Friday and Monday off work and I am SOOO looking forward to it.  Friday will mainly be spent driving to Georgia, but it will be nice to not have to worry about checking emails and whatnot.  This weekend we have Lance's big family reunion, so it will be fun-filled and people-filled... I'm taking Monday off in hopes that Lance and I can get a little quality time together before he heads back to Louisville and I stay in Atlanta for a week at the office.  Rumor is we might be doing some white water rafting on Monday too...  {photo source}
