  4. Haha wow. Car rides with family doess not make me happy at all. I love them but I can't handle hours of them in small spaces. This month Im putting focus on thankfulness for God!

    1. LOL Vanessa!! I can totally see how that would be an un-thankful thing, too. I guess it depends on my mood? Thanks for reminding me to be more thankful for God - something I need to remember, too!

  5. What is it about small towns? I love them so much. Numbers 494 and 496 are also so wonderful. (: I am thankful that school is over and that our Christmas tree is bright and glittering in the living room!

    1. Erin, me too! My parents both grew up in the same small town, so both of their families still live there - you visit one person, you visit them all! I love it. :) Our Christmas tree is up, too... so thankful for that as well!!
