Thankful Thursday

Can you all believe that summer vacation is over for some?  Yes, it seems like June and July flew by.  I’m not complaining though.  I’m thankful because that means cooler weather is near!  It’s been super hot here and we’ve had to spend most of our summer indoors.  So, we’re looking forward to the cooler months and being able to hit up the park before it gets too cold.
I’m also thankful that I’ll be heading to my first blogger’s conference on Monday!  I’m beyond excited!  ATL here I come!  I’ll  be attending the Conversations With Coca Cola Bloggers Conference until Wednesday.  So, if you’re going leave me a comment or shoot me an email.  I’m also thankful that my wonderful mother has so graciously agreed to play travel nanny along with my baby sister. 
Honestly, I wouldn’t be able to go on this trip if it wasn’t for them.  I know that I’m truly blessed to have two very dependable people in my life.  Not only are they dependable but I know they love my kids and would do anything for them.  I’ll be a lot more at ease during the day knowing that Moo and JJ are in such great hands.  In fact, when I strike it rich or win the lottery my mom can quit her day job and travel with me!
And while we’re on the subject of my ATL trip, I’m going to be meeting some of my cousins from my father’s side for the first time!  I’m nervous but not too nervous because we’ve been communicating via Facebook for almost two years now.  I’ve talked about how I don’t really know a lot of my father’s family with the exception of his siblings due to family issues.  I’ve always wanted to know more about them and have more of a sense about where my father’s family came from and whatnot. So, here’s to hoping all goes well.
What are you thankful for?

    Dude… it takes a village, is what they say. You've rounded up your village and that is awesome! Have a great time in Atlanta! I can't wait to read/tweet all about it with you!!! I know that my good blogging buddy, Lauren from A Mommy In The City will be in attendance at the conference.

    Can't wait to hear about the conference. One great thing about Facebook is it allows you to connect with family you've never known. B/c of FB we had our first every family reunion last year and I'm so thankful that it offered us this opportunity to reach those near and far.

    Yes, Facebook has really been a life line when it comes to connecting with that side of my family.
