give thanks, day 23

i started making lists for days 20, 21 and 22, but then life got in the way of my best blogging intentions. but what a great life it has been. i spent the first two days of my break running errands and accomplishing a bunch of little things that i never seem to get done during a work week.  on wednesday, we traveled to phoenix to be reunited with the rest of the family (minus the moore family). yesterday was a wonderful day, which began with a turkey trot 5k, followed by lots of football and delicious food. i loved spending the day with my favorite people and reflecting on all of my blessings.

so, in no particular order, 23 things.
