I am thankful for my family, in all its forms. While Kyle and I have begun our own nuclear family, we also have our own immediate families of origin, and our extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. I am so grateful to be surrounded by so many wonderful people, who have raised me with beautiful traditions and lots of love. I am also blessed to have a whole additional side of wonderful family members through marriage. Every family has their issues and our families are no exception, but on the whole, both Kyle and I have been raised in families that are loving, stable, and made up of people we truly enjoy. While we might not live near any of them, that doesn't diminish our love for them or their importance in our lives.
