Ever so blessed.

A couple of days ago, roommate Jenny posted on her blog a challenge to list out a 100 things we're grateful for. Thanksgiving happens to be my favorite holiday so I took the challenge to heart and wrote them all down in my journal but I also wanted to share them with all of you!
Disclaimer: These aren't necessarily listed in order of importance & I have both superficial & spiritual things.
