Happy Thanksgiving! First and foremost I am thankful for being able to see this day. This morning I woke up and told my mom and brother how thankful I am for them. I have been blessed over and over and over again and I can write a book about how thankful I am...but I will keep it short and sweet. Some people didn't wake up today, some people are starving and cold, and some people are spending this day alone. Be thankful all year around everyone and count your blessings. Enjoy the holiday! :)

This year I spent Thanksgiving at one of my band members house. I went upstate to Utica and enjoyed his family's company. I think this year more than any other year I am thankful for the people i surround myself with because I realize that they are all really good people. People i went to school with, people i go to school with, people i play music with and people I work with are all people I am thankful for and happy to have in my life.
