denver, co.

We spent our Thanksgiving week in Denver with Taylor's dad's side of the family. We stayed in a hotel, but spent the majority of our time at his aunt's house. Despite the fact I took nearly zero pictures & the 8.5 hour car ride, we had a great time! It was fun to be with the Meeks, meeting some I hadn't before. I also loved this Thanksgiving reunion was the first time the family had been all together in almost seven years! We spent our week eating, of course, (you better believe I got my fill of my mother-in-law's amazing sugar cookies) watching football, playing hours and hours of every card game you can imagine, shopping, & just hanging out. I did a minimal amount of homework & got to relax all week. It was a great week off of school, just prepping me for Christmas break- just around the corner! It can't come soon enough.

a time for thanks.

I love this time of year, & especially Thanksgiving because it offers such a great opportunity to reflect on all of my blessings. I have, with out a doubt, been blessed beyond belief in my life, & especially this year. I have been privileged enough to marry my best friend. 
Words cannot express how much I love this guy & feel so lucky that he is mine forever! I am so grateful for him & all he does for me everyday. He cooks me meals on my long days of school or work. He cleans our house & does the dishes more often than not. He always finds some way to make my day special whether it's funny text messages or bringing me flowers. I love that he likes what I like, or pretends to, & gets excited about what I get excited about. I love how happy & positive he is, always setting the best example of not letting little things ruin your day. I'm grateful that our life is always full of funny things & excitement. There's never a dull moment with Taylor. His sporadic dance parties & lyrics changed in all songs he listens to make life so hilarious and fun. I'm the most 'me' when I'm with him, he makes me the person I want to be. 
I love you Tay. SO grateful for you.

cabin trip.

Last weekend, we had a little getaway with four of Taylor's friends & their wives. We went to the cabin that we went to for our honeymoon, & I think it's so cool we can go back there whenever we want. It was nice to get away and just relax. We played a lot of card games & speed scrabble. The boys got to go shoot guns & be boys (whatever that entails), while the girls got to finally have some good girl talk! It was fun to get to know the other couples better, we had a blast! 
 We did some target practice... & no, he is not shooting me! 
We drove home during the sweetest sunset I've ever seen. Seriously, it was breathtaking.
