101 in 1001: Things I'm Thankful For

When I made up this 101 in 1001, I saw several bloggers who had decided to make lists of things they are thankful for. I'm trying to make a list once a month of things I'm thankful for and this is this month's post!

My awesome camera! I had the amazing job of taking pictures of my niece's first birthday party and it just reminded me how much I LOVE my camera. Seriously, one of the best purchases of my life!

I'm thankful for the blogging community. I realized this week that I have gained something big from blogging. Both on this blog and in real life, I own my opinion. By that I mean that I don't feel the need to always qualify things with phrases that belittle my own opinion. Instead if you ask me what I think, I give you my opinion much more unapologetically. This is huge for someone who's always thought their opinion doesn't matter!

I'm thankful for the technology that allows me to keep in touch with family. I use facebook to keep in touch with a cousin who is getting married, aunts, uncles and other cousins. I use text messaging to keep up with my sister and my cousin. I  use the phone to talk to parents and grandparents. I love that I have the chance to keep up with so many people. Especially ones that I would otherwise never keep in touch with!

I'm thankful for my health. In general, I'm not a sickly person. I haven't had the flu in years (knock on wood!) and I just generally don't get sick. Recently I've had some lingering something or other. It just reminded me how much I appreciate my generally healthy self!
