thankful thursday {link up}

{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...
1) A reason to dress up.  And a really good reason, at that!  Tomorrow night is the annual Scarlet Hope Gala and Lance and I will be attending this year!  Scarlet Hope is an amazing ministry in Louisville that is very dear to my heart.  Scarlet Hope ministers to women in the adult entertainment industry... visiting hundreds of girls at the dance clubs each week, serving them meals and sharing the love of Christ with them.  It is truly an incredible ministry with a powerful message.  You can read more about Scarlet Hope here.

2) Cozy girls night in.  Last night was deemed girls night in... dinner, drinks, some classy television (Pretty Little Liars, Season 1), and some cozy blankets on the couch.  To me, this is the best kind of girls night... low-key and good company:)

3) Family.  Lance and I have been pretty overwhelmed with all of our life changes going on right now... but I am so thankful that we have such an amazing support system.  Sometimes I take family for granted... but I am so, so grateful that both Lance and I have family that constantly love and encourage us... in the good times and the overwhelming times.
