I am thankful for my little brothers, who judge all the guys in my life to determine if they are good for me; who taught me the rules of football and helped me pick my favorite team. Go NY Giants!
I am thankful for my older brother who captains our soccer team, who I get to see once a week, and who lets me spoil my niece and nephews rotten.
I am thankful that I am an aunt. It is my best and favorite role to play.
I am thankful for my mom, who edits my cover letters, waits for the internet guy to show up and helps me move. She is the person I turn to for everything that happens.

I am thankful for those who will spend all day with me while I cry for a friend who passed away, who will drive with me to the funeral and who will take me to brunch.
I am thankful for my two furry guys, who offer unconditional love, friendship and affection.
I am thankful for my passport, for my view, for my ability to bike everywhere I want to go and for fact that my apartment is covered in books.
I am thankful for autumn in Canada, for the ability to vote and for peanut butter-chocolate anything.
