Being Thankful

It is Thanksgiving today and I have a lot to be thankful for.

I’m thankful for my wife. It isn’t every woman who is cut out for Stepmothering or for a previously married man, but she saw something in me that was worthy and she has become my wife, life partner  and great second mother to my daughter and I’m pretty happy (and thankful) about all of that.

That is my beautiful (and wickedly smart) wife.

I’m thankful for my little girl. She is equal parts amusing and frustrating and wonderful and being her father is something that defines me and gives my life purpose in a way nothing else can. I am thankful that she loves nature as much as she does (which is substantially).

The girl and her shark.

I’m thankful for two saltwater trips this past year which were both amazing. The first was a trip to Cuba with Jim Klug and the second was to El Pescador in Belize for my honeymoon. Not a thing to complain about there!

I’m thankful for bacon, for obvious reasons.

mmmm…. bacon.

I’m thankful that my dad’s health scare earlier this year seems to have passed and that he’s still fishing.

My dad pulled out the cast of his lifetime to get this pretty fantastic mutton snapper.

I’m thankful for this blog. It gives me an outlet for my passion and a community of people I find both interesting and inspiring.

Thanks for reading and Happy Thanksgiving.
