Life Lessons

I had so much fun doing the October Blog Challenge with Mary over at Mary Speaks that I decided to find a new challenge for November! Although we shall see how it goes towards the end of the month because remember I’m jet-setting to Thailand for Thanksgiving!!!! … BUT I digress.

This new monthly challenge is hosted by A Happy Girl and the prompts are really sweet and fun so here we go!

Nov. 1st: One of the best lessons life has shown you

The best lesson I have been shown is that you never ever know what life will bring you. Just 5 years ago I would have never thought I would be in Chicago, be having a total blast, have THREE animals, and be surround with the most amazing family and friends. I never in a million years would think the people who I love the dearest would be in my life at all. I have made my life what it is, but I’m mystified at how perfect things have turned out. I can only say I am incredibly excited for everything that is to come!
