The fam

This might seem like a no-brainer, but today I am thankful for family.

I was raised by great parents, have strong examples of men and women on both sides, and have such strong bonds with cousins that they are some of my closest friends.

When Ben and I got married I realized I was going to be blessed with having a ridiculous amount of love, because my in-laws are some of the most fabulous people around.

But by family, I don't just mean blood/marriage related. There's the family you're born into and the family you create - for me that includes a heck of a lot of amazing friends.

A lot of people have hard family lives and others equate family with burden - so to all my family out there, thanks for being amazing - I love you.

What are you thankful for today?

I posted about my family today, too! It only seemed fitting to end my 10 day post series with what I am most thankful for! I am so glad that I associate time with my family with peace as I know that is not the case for everyone. We are blessed to have such happy, healthy families!

And I totaly agree about building your own family with friends you really care about and who care about you!
