I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday eating too much delicious food with your family and friends! I know I did...
As the holiday weekend is winding down (only Cyber monday left lol..) I figured I'd share how my Thanksgiving went with you all. I spent my Thanksgiving in Sanford, North Carolina with a family that I've become so close with over the years that they're easily part of my extended family now! What made it even better is that my mom and dad drove down from Fairfax, VA and spent the holiday there as well (unfortunately, my brother couldn't make it :( still love him though!).
With what I do for a living, being with family during the holidays is something I value and appreciate more than you could possibly imagine. There's something so special about this time of year, everyone can feel it.. and you just don't realize how meaningful it is until you've experienced missing out on it for several years. I owe a very sincere and special thank you to Joel and Cindy Ammons (and their daughters Brooke & Annabelle) for being such gracious hosts and allowing us to share their holiday.. especially since my little Bella wasn't very nice to their sweet dog Sparkles. (Sorry!) The Thomas' love each of you so much!
I'm so grateful for all the wonderful things God has done and is doing in my life from blessing me with amazing family and friends to allowing me to do something I'm passionate about for a living, and so so SO much more! I don't take anything for granted and thank him for it everyday, not just the last Thursday of each November.
Switching gears a little, DUKE FOOTBALL, now Coastal Division Champs, are playing in the ACC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME Saturday Dec 7th @ 8pm at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC and I WILL BE THERE! I'm so proud of Coach Cutcliffe and all those guys I wouldn't dare miss out on witnessing history and all of you Duke fans/supporters should do your best to be there (or watch on TV) also!!! #goDuke !
Til next time...
