Hi Loves! F & J here!
We are so glad that it is Friday here in Seattle and for the majority of the world. It was a beautiful autumn day today, the air was crisp and cool, and there was blue skies, we couldn't ask for more than that. Things have been busy lately, but Friday marks the end of a week, so hopefully that means this weekend we will get time to rest (and maybe get to sleep in!).

Life has been full of ups and downs the last few weeks, it's just a total emotional roller coaster. Between broken phones, broke down cars, stupid bosses, and bad luck, there sure is a lot to complain about. But the holiday season is coming, and so is the time to be more aware of what to be thankful for. You should always remember you have it better than someone else, and we know it's not easy sometimes. So with the season of thanks coming around the corner, we thought we would talk about some of the things we are thankful for. You should know that we are thankful for everything we have (shelter, food, water, friends and family, etc.) but we thought we thought we could list things more specific to our lives.
Our Home-  We are so blessed that we live in such a beautiful and safe city! We are so close to the water, and city life, but also close to the country life, it is such a good balance, and we know that this isn't somewhere that everyone gets to live. We like that our city gets four seasons, because we love them all! The summers aren't too hot, the fall brings beautiful colors, the winter brings light snow, and the spring is full of fresh air and flowers. It will always be where our heart is, our home, no matter where we are in the world.
Music- As silly as it sounds we are so thankful we like the music, that we like. We believe we would say this, no matter music we liked, but really we are so thankful we have good taste :) We are thankful that there is music to make us sane, and happy, and it always seems to be very therapeutic. We also are thankful that we make music ourselves. We both sing and play piano, and F plays the guitar too! It is something we are super passionate about and hope we get a career in the industry one day. Music is always there, and always provides comfort for whatever mood you are in.

Jobs- We are both very thankful we have jobs, especially in a time where there are lots of people who are having extreme difficulty finding jobs. We may complain about having to get up early, or work later than hoped, or having bosses who make us crazy, but the bottom line is we are thankful we get a pay check, and work hard enough to know the value of money. And on the topic of money we are thankful that we have enough to be able to do some of the things we want to, like concerts, and shopping trips that aren't necessary. We are by no means rich or even close to being considered wealthy, but if there is something we want to do, we are able to work through our finances and find a way to make it happen, within reason of course.

Blog- We are thankful that we have the opportunity to write a blog, a place where we can say whatever we want.  To open up about our lives. We are so thankful that there is someone reading what we are writing, because even though it may not be as many as we would like, it is always one more than what we would have ever thought. 

That just hits the surface of what we are thankful for. We could go on and on and I am sure we will list more things before thanksgiving comes. We want everyone to appreciate what they have, every day of the year, and remember to pay it forward, because you may have more to be thankful for, than the person next to you.
