November is a really cool month. Fall is in full swing (as much as it does even here in Florida), the holidays are approaching (but not blaring Christmas music yet), and it’s a great time to reflect on the past year without much worry to new year resolutions or holiday stress. Also, it’s a month for community, as much as any other. Movember (mustaches for prostate cancer awareness) and NaNoWriMo (national novel writing month) are two challenges that growing out of groundswell. Another one in the blogosphere is 30 days of thanks, which I am going to attempt throughout the month. I’ll have to enlist Garrett’s help to complete, but it should be a good exercise for us together.
Without further adieu, here is my first declaration of thanks…
I’m thankful for Jacksonville, they city that I didn’t know where it was exactly, until my first interview with the PGA TOUR happened (though I had some affinity for the Jaguars NFL team long before). On a recent Twitter thread themed “ilovejax” I posted, “#ilovejax I found my dream job and husband here, plus an NFL team to cheer for, beaches to lay on, races to run, @smcjax & great friends!”
On the blog I get more than 140 characters, but I don’t necessarily need them to share my appreciation for a city of my dreams (for what I thought it held) that has become my home and launched a life with my husband that I never dreamed would be a reality. Thank you, Jax.
If you choose to post your days of thanks, or just want to chime in with mine, post in the comments to share!
