What We Are Thankful For


I am thankful for Freedom.  For all the men and woman who have fought for this country, including my brother’s and many member’s of my family throughout the years so that me and my family can live in Freedom.  I am thankful for Jesus.  That he died on the cross to cover my sins. Sins that I do every day over and over, even though I try not to.  I am thankful for my Family.  They are beautiful gifts from God and a reminder of his love for me and his challenges for me to become a better human being.  I am thankful for Alyssa, Jordin and Adrus.  I am thankful we all found each other.  We challenge each other every day and always come up with a creative solution to address each situation.  Elizabeth Erin Designs could not function with out them.  I am thankful for my team of Sub-contractors.  With out them, our ideas would just end.  They make magic happen everyday!  I am thankful for my Clients.  They allow me to push boundaries and take them out of their comfort zones just a little to watch our ideas and suggestions unfold as each layer of design is completed.  I wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving Holiday Season with your friends and family!

I am thankful for my family, they live far away so I don’t see them often, but this Christmas They are coming to visit, and I will see them for the first time in 18 months. God has definitely blessed me with an amazing family and even though our close relationships make being away from them all the more difficult I wouldn’t have it reversed.

I am also thankful for my friends and the people in my day to day life who keep me engaged with the world and don’t allow me to be antisocial as my Introverted personality is naturally inclined.



I would never be able to list all the things I’m thankful for but at this time I am very thankful for the following:

My wonderful family- Parents, sisters, nieces, nephews, brother-in-laws and dogs who I can’t wait to spend time with over the holidays

Snow plows for clearing the roads that I take to and from work

My car for getting me from point a to point b whenever I want

My amazing boyfriend who happens to be a really great cook for putting up with me and my weird self on a daily basis

Coffee with a little sugar in it to start my day

GPS…I would be so lost without that thing

My job and the family I work with everyday


My health at the time despite the allergy shots

My friends who I can count on for anything and everything from needing a laugh to needing to borrow a grill

Warm showers

Life past present and the future

Calendars for organizing my time and reminding me everything I forget
