I once had the opporunity to live with a really rad group of girls. One of them, whom I highly admire, doesn't get to live with her husband for a little bit. They both had amazing opportunities in different locations. I can't even imagine what that would be like.

So, while I am grateful for so many things in my life, I think I am most grateful to be able to live with my everything. With grad school and work situations heading our way, I am aware there is a chance this won't be always be the case. That'll suck. But for now, I have him here with me and I get to see him every day. I am lucky. Because I don't think I am as tough as my friend (or as smart or cool...really, she's pretty spectacular)...at least not now.

Not only am I grateful to get to spend so much time with sir Kay. I'm grateful that we want to spend to much time together. I can never get enough. Seriously. Ever. My Adam-time needs are never fully satiated. He is so cool and funny. And he will play rock band with me for hours or watch stupid movies. What a champ. If you know me well, you know I don't feel this way about many people...at all. I'm lucky.

I am grateful for A LOT of amazing family. My family is hands down the greatest family ever. We are so close and we do so much together. I love having siblings and cousins as best friends. Adam's family is also incredible and I am really glad to be one of them. I really could mention each family member individually but they know how I feel...and most of you probably wouldn't read it anyway.

I am so glad to be done with some school and to have the opportunity to go to even more. Really, I hate school. But I'm grateful to be in the financial and intellectual situations to be able to fully pursue my ambitions. I am also grateful that Adam has been gracious enough to put his own dreams on hold while I work to acheive mine. He really is the tops (are you getting the sense that I dig him?).

I am grateful for my religion and Savior, for my beautiful home, and for decent health...considering the circumstances. I'm grateful for my perspective. I used to be pretty narrow minded, judgemental, and self-righteous. I am ashamed of that. But I can say, with great confidence, that I have come a long way and that I am a very tolerant and open-minded person...which I like. My life isn't perfect. (Note: I didn't say I was grateful for my chub...but I guess I can be grateful I'm not any fatter than I am). It is pretty great though.

Like I said...lucky.

My blogroll is at the very bottom, so if you can't find someone, look there (or do a little blog stalking after to get a few back). I feel bad that I couldn't recover your blogrolls though! Hopefully it's a quick recovery. :)
