Thankful in 2017

{when traveling with our friends - we are spoiled with fabulous cocktails.
how awesome are these little champagne bottles with sipper cups}?!

thanksgiving this year was spent in a beautiful cabin in greer. it was a little strange being up there and not staying in our home. {we owned a second home up there for about seven years}.

{the girls made cute center pieces for our thanksgiving table}.
the weather in arizona has been so mild...even the white mountains had unusually warm temps.
but...no complaints! we were able to eat our feast outside on the deck...overlooking the little colorado river. it was lovely.

we ate great food, drank delicious wine, enjoyed long walks, and fished. the kids had an awesome time fishing in the ponds.

it was a nice weekend. i absolutely adore the family we were with and the setting was beautiful. although i was missing randi, she and i texted throughout the entire parade...commenting about the acts, the clothes, the floats, and the rockettes! {it was a cute parade}.

randi had spent the holiday with her dad...traveling with mimi and papa. she came home friday to spend the weekend with friends who were flying in from washington and california. {she met them in india}. she showed them as much of our awesome state as she could in four days! 

thanksgiving 2017 was one for the memory books. it was different not being with family and being out of town...but a good different. 

my heart is full of gratitude...
i am married to a man whom i adore. i have two pretty fabulous kids. i am blessed with great family. i get to teach fitness classes and be a mom every day. we are all healthy. life is good.
