Why I'm thankful for my sisters-in-law ...
  • Bluntness is a good thing. It's rarely taken personally and we joke about weird things we all do.
  • We're sort of the same size. It's cute.
  • They are not ego maniacs about their kids.
  • Sometimes they ask me for advice and it makes me feel special. Like when Jen calls to ask if backpacks are still stylish or if campus parking is enforced on the weekends.
  • Tasha always has a camera. This is awesome because I never have one and even if I do I forget to take pictures. But Tasha always remembers and makes them fantastic.
  • Family events are super chill.
  • They like the puppy and indulge our obsession with her.
  • They love their dad and rely on him. It melts my heart.
  • We all like Costco!
  • I like to hug them -- for two reasons: 1) it makes them feel sort of awkward. 2) I like to hug them.
  • They have funny stories about growing up together. Like the burning hot spaghetti Os and the road trip in Arizona and the nintendo remote and "I'm not Tasha, I'm Breck."
  • It amuses me that they were fat babies.
  • We actually like each other.

Thanksgiving is on its way.
It's a time to think about all we have
and we have a lot.
Time to acknowledge all the things I'm
for in my absolutely lovely life.
Because honestly,
we take much for granted.
