A Peaceful Getaway

After my first holiday away from my family this past weekend on my way home, I couldn't help but to have a moment of clarity. A moment where I couldn't help but be thankful for all that I have. A moment where I realized just how content I am,  with myself, my friendships, my fiance, and my family. What it comes down too is that those are the most important things in my life. If I have those 4 things, there isn't much more I need..

I have been becoming content with my "Sami Time". Whether it be in the car, reading a book, or laying in bed at night watching a movie alone. I have realized the importance of enjoying time alone, to just be with your thoughts. Even spending time alone grocery shopping is nice. Don't get me wrong 90% of the time I don't want to be alone. But I also realize it's important to have a relationship with yourself. 

Over the weekend I have also been reminded of how blessed I am with a great friendship. Saturday night, Josh and I got to spend the evening (and night!) with Ben and Jacqlyn. Jacqlyn AKA my Jackie O is the friend that I think was truly made for me. Ever since I've met Jackie O we've been attached at the hip. I think that we could talk for hours and never get sick of each other.. in fact we've done that.. many many times. Sometimes in Lake Michigan, sometimes in Ben's empty bathtub with pillows and blankets... She just brings out the best in me and makes me smile and laugh. (I sound like I'm in love with her.. which may be true as well!) We understand each other and can be so open with each other. I am so lucky to have her in my life! I only wished we lived closer! Boo! I also love Ben! :) Josh, Ben, Jacqlyn, and I make the best couple friends. (At least that's what we say.. ) 

I have also continued to be so very thankful for Josh and I's relationship. While wedding planning can be stressful, I just can't stop smiling. (which I'm thankful for!) We have continued to work together to make our relationship stronger and shape the future for our family. He makes me smile everyday and has done so since day one. I am so thankful for a rock solid foundation. I can't wait to get married... 400 plus days! (Not like I'm counting!)

Finally, after spending the weekend with my future in-laws, I couldn't help but to be thankful for such a great family of my own and family to be. I could not be more blessed.

So world, bring it on. I am ready. I got the best support team in the world!
