My week of Thanksgiving break started today…..My mom and sister picked me up from my apartment and we all 3 rode in the front seat of my dad’s truck 2 hours to Lufkin in east texas…..just in time to meet everyone for dinner!! On the way we made a video of us all singing a song from the musical Wicked we saw in New York (2 summers ago) and again this year in Austin. I am SO thankful for times like these but i tend to forget how thankful I am throughout my busy week……So since its thanksgiving week I am going to remind myself what I am thankful for…..
