This holiday season I have a lot to be thankful for. Here are just a few:

My little guy: This little guy has given my life a whole new meaning. Even when times are rough and sleep, cleaning and errands are few and far between, the littlest squeak or smile can brighten up my day. He makes my heart sing and I love being his mom. I am so excited to celebrate holidays with him and start our own family traditions.

My mom, grandma, and my mother-in-laws: They love Bastian to death and spoil him with hugs, kisses and non-stop baby talk. We are all so lucky and fortunate to have them in our lives.

My lovely husband: Brian is so supportive in everything I do. I would be a nut case without him. He helps ground me and constantly assures me that I am doing good job as a mom, wife and friend. He is such a great dad, Bastian is a lucky guy. I am thankful for his cooking skills too hehe. 

My girlfriends and family: These ladies have been there for me through the thick and thin – we are all like family. We get each other better than anyone. It has been so fun to see each of our families form and grow over the years. They help make me a better person. 

Sleep: I am thankful for every hour of sleep…heck I am thankful for every 15 minutes more of sleep I can get. And how can I not be thankful for how adorable Bastian looks while he sleeps :).
