I've been wanting to make this post for a while, but just haven't had the time to sit down and do it. In light of the Thanksgiving season (that I guess is technically now over), I am thankful for all the friends and people I know that brighten my life. I'm thankful for all of you that update your blog so I can stay updated on all the little (and big) moments that I miss by not being close.

To express my thanks, I'm listing the #1 favorite thing I love about each person on my blog list.
