Well, Every year around this time I write a blog describing my year. Holy Moly!!! So many firsts for me this year! I have seen so so so much! I finally made it to China! I made it to Seattle! I have traveled to Green Bay, WI and Chicago IL. I have taught hundreds or Airgas employees, and couldn't be happier. My best friend of all time moved in with me. I made huge decisions in my life about what I want and what I see happening in my future. SO much has happened. People have come into my life that I think back and just sit there and say, how did I do this before without them? Some have gone too. I think that life works that way sometimes. I love my friends, I feel like I have alot of them, but this year has been a struggle. I have had many ups and downs. I have seen alot of people I love get hurt. So this is my "Thankful Blog" It is going to be long, so I apologize now, but here we go!
TO Jimi and Matt: Holy crap guys! Can you believe we have only known each other for 9 months! Yo two are two of the most important people in my life! Thanks for being so vital to my sanity!
Sarah and Patrick: Without you guys I truly would go crazy! You guys are always there to keep it interesting. Thanks to Sarah and Patrick for the little talks and being there for me when I needed it.

To all my work people: This past year has gone by so so so so fast! Can you believe it? I love each and every one of you! You keep me going when I need a pep talk. I have grown to accept most of you as almost family! I can not wait to see what next year brings for us!
To my Family:
J & J: You have done so much this year! Annabelle is the most amazing little girl in the world. She stole my heart from the moment I saw her. Your family is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for all that you do for me while I am on the road. It does mean alot to me!! Love you all so much!
Scott: Man, did we just become best friends? (Step Brothers reference) Always, without a discussion you have been there for me this past year. I am the crazy sister who won't leave you alone. I'm sorry about that! I love you so much bubba! I love how close we have become. Thanks for the chats, and the real words. You never BS me and I appreciate that! Thanks for giving me time with your sons. They are growing up to be honorable men because of you!
Dad (Papa): You are it. That's all I can say! I love you dad! Your sacrifice and what you do on a daily basis is astounding! Thank you for always being there. Thank you for talking sense into me when I need it. Thank you for being the most incredible dad! I love you more than anything!
Mom: HOLY CRAP!!! YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND! I am so proud of you! You are "the reason". I love you, and I can not even begin to explain how I feel about our relationship. You have gone through so much! The sacrifice that you have done as well is amazing. It is such a short term thing then, you have the rest of your life! I love you more than there are stars in the sky!
If I have forgotten anyone I am sorry. I am thankful for each and everyone of you! You have a special place in my heart, I promise you. I am going to ask for a prayer though! Pray for me to be at peace with the decisions I am making. Ask God to prepare me for what I am supposed to do.
Thanks for reading! I pray everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Love to all!
