1. Though I do celebrate it, I don't particularly care for Thanksgiving as a holiday.
    Long story short: most Native Americans don't. With good reason.
  2. And honestly, 2016 has been a pretty sucky year for me.
    And many, many others.
  3. But I'm always a fan of thankfulness and gratitude.
  4. So in that spirit. Here are a few of the things I am thankful for...
  5. My insane family, whom I love very much.
  6. Belief in something, even if that something is hard to define at the moment.
  7. Friends who become family.
  8. Good people. There are still plenty of them out there.
  9. Coffee. It makes me happier than just about anything.
  10. Amazing books.
  11. Strong women. So inspiring.
  12. My favorite mascara.
    Always and forever thankful for this one.
  13. You. Seriously. And you and you and you.
    I am not necessarily a lovey dovey person (although I love everyone and everything, but that's more of a because I have to, not because I want to) but I genuinely love AND like being a part of this community. Y'all are the best and I'm so glad to have stumbled (read: forced myself) into your lives and welcomed you into mine. 💙
