Thanksgiving or not, I always find myself a in a more reflective space towards the end of the year. And as is the case every year (more like every day!), I’m so thankful for Vishnu, my family, our friends, and our health. I’m also thankful for the good times and the not so good times because each carries invaluable lessons that help us grow and be even more grateful.

In today’s Three Things Thursday post, I thought I would share some of the more personal things I’m thankful for this year in particular.

And this week’s post is even more special because I’m guest hosting the link up! When Salma reached out and asked if I would like to take this on, I said “of course!!!” I’m a huge fan of the SABN community – everyone is incredibly kind and supportive. And Three Things Thursday posts are some of my favorite to write because they allow me to share random snippets of my life that would otherwise never see the light of day (the horror!).

Ok, on to this week’s three things!

My job (and team)

I’ve mentioned this before, but I am beyond thankful for a job and more importantly a team that is so flexible with me, especially as Vishnu and I transition from city to city. With all the chaos that comes with our moves, it’s comforting not to have to worry about my job and if I’m going to have one!


Our trip to Italy

One of mine and Vishnu’s life goals is to travel the world….and honestly we’re a little behind! But we were able to cross one country off our list earlier this year – ITALY! The culture, the history, the sights, the food, the people – every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations. So thankful I was able to experience it all with Vishnu!

P.S. I plan to share some of our favorite SLR pictures in an upcoming post. I’m a little behind!

All of YOU!

Even after almost five years of blogging, I’m still blown away by the fact that people other than my mom, sister, and Vishnu read MIS.

Not to be super cheesy – but THANK YOU for reading what I have to say. Every comment, email, message, interaction means more to me than you’ll ever know. I love sharing my life with all of you and hope you’ll stick around (forever and ever!).


Those are my three things on this Thanksgiving Thursday.
