(I don't have any pictures with them yet, sad I know!)
I am especially thankful for love and when I think of love I think of Nic. I am thankful that I was blessed with a man that loves me for exactly who I am. I am thankful that we share so many things in common. He brings out the best in me and is incredibly supportive. He is the sweetest boy I have ever met... let me just share with you what he did for me today... it was dumping down snow outside and I wore thin shoes that soaked the water all the way through my socks. He left work, drove to my apartment, brought me 3 (not just 1) but 3 different pairs of shoes so that I would have one that matched my outfit and a new pair of socks. Words can't even express how kind and charitable he is. Since the day that I met Nic, every day after that has been a fairy tale. I will always love him and will forever be thankful for him.
