Tis the time of year for reflection, for appreciation of the hours spent with family and friends and this day is no different. As I sit along a warm beach, with salty air grazing through my hair, I am thankful. 


Thankful for for another year of health, safe travels, a love whom I don't like to be a day without, dedicated parents, authentic siblings, a warm home, the freedom to travel and explore, an innate passion to continually create and uncover beauty, a job with upcoming challenges and friends whom are dear.  


While this may be negative, I am realistic that this wholeness may change, that sickness may approach, that life's bumps may elevate and this moment a year, two, ten from now may feel different or even sad.  


For now, I am grateful.
