THANKFUL FRIDAY

I have so much to be thankful for today. First of all, I have the day off. Secondly, today is my best friend's, Stephanie, birthday. And because we both have the day off, we are spending the day together doing really girly things. I've scheduled pedicures for us at 10:30 to be followed by crepes and frozen yogurt for lunch. Then maybe a trip to the bead shop or the mall, who knows?

Steph and I don't get to spend a lot of time together. Our paths are so different and busy, that we rarely get a chance to just do silly stuff together any more. But Steph is my constant and we are always there for each other when needed most.

After my day with Steph, Chris and I have plans to meet my brother and sister-in-law for dinner in Stroud. My brother had a birthday on Monday. A big birthday. One that makes me go "No Way! I have a brother who is 50!". Yeah...freaky. I am thankful for my brother for so many reasons. We all joke about how I was the one raised by the village. He and Katrina were like the Mayors of that village. He helped shape and influence the music I listen too, how I see things visually and the one to repeat my adolescent mantra, You will go to college, over and over. I am thankful that he is my brother and my friend.

Hope every one has a great day and a thankful Friday!
