Thankful Thursday #25 – Happy New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope you’re enjoying this holiday season!

December has been a fun and unusual month! My husband and I have been on a cross-country road trip since December 2nd. I’m typing this as my husband drives 80 miles per hour (that is the speed limit!) on I-10, in the middle of no where, in Texas. We are approaching Fort Stockton and it’s been almost 100 miles since the last town!

Our four year relationship brought so many great things into my life!

As I write this, I’m flying to his funeral in Michigan and I’m watching the plane on the flight tracker follow almost the exact route we drove 19 years ago, which is stirring up emotions and fun memories!

Some of my favorite things about Mack were his smile, his laugh, his ticklishness, his lankiness, (he was 6’8” and very skinny!), his soft spoken personality, how he loved his nieces and nephews (when they were little, he’d play with them constantly), and the love he had for his family and his son.
