Top Ten Tuesday: Thanksgiving Edition

Hey, ladies!

It's Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish! Since Thursday marks Thanksgiving for us U.S. residents, this week's topic is all about being thankful. Let's jump right in!

I am thankful for.....

10. My family

My immediate family and one aunt are fantastic, amazing people that I adore. I'm truly blessed with wonderful parents and 6 siblings (yes, 6! I'm the oldest of 7!) that are usually great too. ;) I'm lucky enough to have a good friendship with both my parents, and my youngest sister is my pride and joy.

9. My pets (the rest of the family!)

I four pets (3 dogs/1 cat) that are amazing. I lost my youngest dog at the end of October, and it was a heartbreaking experience. However, the newest addition is doing wonders to heal that pain!

This is Nola, my 6 year old miniature dachshund. She's my heart and soul!

This is Pike, an almost three year old mini Aussie. He's an asshole.
This is Lachlan, a 9 week old rescued Beagle. She's the baby and newest addition. 

This is Salem, a 7 month old mutt kitty. She thinks she's a dog, and has been with me since she was a 2.5 week old bottle baby rescue. 

8. Exercise

Walking, yoga, swimming, light free weights, throwing around a ball, ect. I love all of it, and how it clears and calms my mind.

7. Food and health

I love to eat. ;) Thankfully I'm one of those people that genuinely enjoys healthy eating!
And I'm thankful for my good health, and that of my family's (two and four legged)!

6. Sunsets

Not bad for an iPhone shot!

5. Cooler weather

65 degrees is much nicer than 110. Just sayin'.

4. Flowers

3. Music

2. Sleep

1. Books, of course!

eBooks, physical books, audiobooks. Romance, mystery, fantasy, humor. Long, short, funny, sad, crazy, dirty, satisfying. I'm thankful for them all!
