...for a really kind and all-around great coworker, kaylee.. hard to see her go. her last day was on friday and going to work today (monday) was a bummer without her there. she added a lot to our environment.
...for safe driving all around on friday evening! snow was forecasted, which probably doesn't really affect people like it does me. i get so bothered by making long trips when it's snowing and roads have the potential to become icy. i am thankful for a safe trip.
...for francis (duh). and before i make this entire post about him and everything i'm so thankful for in him, i'll just say it in this point. he is wonderful. so serving. so kind. always looking out for me and taking care of me and i love holding his hand and being by him and i can't, CAN'T, wait to become his family. he's so so good and i'll never stop thanking God for the good gift of him and how he loves me.
...for francis' brother, joe. for solid car time with him in tow.
...for the city of eden, wisconsin. little buddy's becoming familiar to me and i like that.
...for the cozy bed awaiting me at francis' parents' house. that puppy has a heated blanket and for someone like me, who is never NOT cold, it's heaven.
...for the flood house and how loving and kind francis' whole family is towards me.
...for a saturday mornin to sleep in, take slowly, and get breakfast with fran and his sisters.
...for booking our HONEYMOON! a big ol check off the to-do list and i'm SO EXCITED.
...for francis' mom and sister angel. i really like bein with those two. plus, i think angel is really starting to be more comfortable around me (not that she wasn't), but i have myself convinced that she likes me, too. she's a lot of joy.
...for a visit with francis' grandparents. i'm grateful i got to tag along.
...for a big flood family thanksgiving with good food.
...for the song francis played on guitar in front of everyone about me. ((: guys, i'm smitten, okay?!

...for bob flood's chili!
...for the flood kitchen table. it's just comfortable and i like it.
...for makin myself laugh when i switched my lacroix with francis' water (he hates lacroix). he didn't fall for it, but it got me laughin pretty good. i'm kind of a dork.
...for how thanksgiving and holidays bring people back home across the country.
...for a bet with francis and joe about exactly what time we would get back to la crosse. and a high-five as the winner's prize! (guess who wooooon?!)
