As corny as it sounds, I've spent a lot of time this weekend thinking about how blessed I am. I didn't get a lot of stuff, but I didn't want stuff. Instead, I'm blessed with people and experiences from the past few days.
- I got to spend lots of time with my two nephews, and marvel at the tall and smart boys they are becoming. - I got to hug and kiss my grandfather, who actually knew my name after a bad spell last week of not knowing anyone. In any case, I am so fortunate to still have both of my maternal grandparents. - I got to participate in a Christmas Day picnic with my nephews and second cousins, complete with a quilt on my aunt's lawn and ice cream sandwiches. - I got to hold my cousin's newborn baby girl. - And to cap it all off, I was flooded with text messages and facebook posts from my friends and Inforoosters.

Seven months ago, I asked LoveLuckLaughter to go hike some caves and waterfalls on a cold, crappy Oct weekend. Best idea I've ever had. Caught more feelings out on those strolls in the woods than any one man deserves. And I'm still falling head over heels for her crunchy, unicorn-asss every second since.
