Life

Thankful

Here’s what I am most thankful for right now.

After getting myself ready every morning, I make breakfast for my fiancée and myself. I do this every morning without question. I’ll make sausage, toast, avocado, and eggs or smoothies with fruit, greens, and protein. Sometimes I’ll do oatmeal. I am thankful for this opportunity every morning because it is my way of making the morning a littler easier for @lizkel1 and it is one of my favorite ways to start the day.

I am thankful for all the amazing life experiences coming my way in 2018. A wedding alongside @lizkel1. A bachelor party with my closest friends. A honeymoon. Also, I get to take on the role of best man for one of my favorite person in the world, @callmejoep.

I am thankful for my supportive family. My dad is always helping me talk through challenges. My mom works super hard every day as a small business owner which I am super thankful that I got some of that work ethic from her. My old sister is the most gregarious person I know and she passes that to me. My two little brothers and two nieces who keep me connected to kids as I move through my 20s. Also, all the new family members I will be gaining in 2018 after getting married.

I am also thankful for the chance to do what I love every day: marketing. I get to try to create campaigns that will resonate with people. I get to learn and listen to smart peers share their knowledge. I get to share things I’ve learned and help others. I get to solve puzzles with data and find patterns.

I am thankful I was able to honor a fallen hero this morning at CrossFit. His name is Glen and he was on my mind as I moved through the workout in his name.
