Today I am thankful... {for florida} & thanksgiving plans

Today I am thankful for Florida. 
Okay, not really the state of Florida but the opportunity to be here. 
I complain about it a lot because I really miss home
by home I mean Utah and my family. 
However, I am really grateful for the path that led us to Florida. 
I am thankful for the University seeing how incredible my sweet husband is
and offering him a fabulous place to be educated. 
I am thankful for the way we have to rely on each other so much more
now that we don't have our families a few miles away. 
It is going to be a long four years but I am thankful for this opportunity. 
And let's be real... I am thankful for the continual sunshine here too!

Thanks to everyone with your input on our Thanksgiving plans.
I found another fabulous groupon deal at a hotel in Jacksonville. 
So tomorrow morning we are headed out to the beach 
and then spending the night at a hotel.
I am so excited to take a bath at the hotel- our apt doesn't have a tub hahaha
Our sweet friends invited us to a Thanksgiving potluck meal with a bunch of people
so we will be coming back Thursday for that.
And yes, we will be sneaking in some black friday shopping too.
(one of my facebook friends posted a picture of tents lined up at the local best buy..
really? what is this world coming to? I love Black Friday but really?)
Yep, we fit everything in and it was only $70 for the hotel. 

I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving...
if you need me, this is where I will be
