    I’m thankful for all the simple luxuries in my life that most take for granted. Like a roof over my head, never having to worry about where my next meal will come from, a family that loves me, having the option to choose different outfits to wear each day, and the chance to live by my own beliefs.

  2. Devon Schonour says:

    I am thankful for my friends. It is because of these friends that I met the love of my life, five years ago! Furthermore, I am thankful that our friends will be at my wedding next summer, celebrating our love.

  3. Morgan says:

    I have completed the steps and am following everything of all you wonderful people! So much talent in one giveaway I can hardly stand it. Hope I win, my fiance and I would love everything about this. 🙂 🙂

    I always love this time of year, because it’s such a wonderful reminder to practice gratitude and recognize all the small blessings in our lives! I’m ever thankful for my family members and my close group of friends, who are all so different but each with their own special gifts that enrich different facets of my life every day. And I’m grateful to have my health and an able body that allows me to do so many things that bring great joy to my life: hiking, yoga, slacklining, dancing…and I’m so thankful every day to have a kind, generous man in my life, who fills my days with laughter and adventures and love. <3

  5. Gavin Nitta says:

    I am grateful for the power and influence of love, the kind of love between siblings, lovers, friends, and others. I don’t believe that only time heals all wounds. I believe that love also heals all wounds. When people are motivated by genuine love for each other, miracles happen. Nicholas Sparks said, “Love…is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.” I am grateful for the love that has been shown to me and for the way I feel when I show love towards others.

  6. Taigen says:

    I’m grateful for the education I am receiving in order to prepare myself for the future!! .. And let me tell you, the future is so close! I can’t wait to spend the rest of forever with my best friend. I am SO excited about this giveaway! Yay!

    I am thankful for so many things today; fluffy snowflakes, woolly sweaters, frothy pumpkin steamers…mostly, the love of my life. My story didn’t start out as one of “love at first sight” or a strong powerful feeling that I couldn’t deny. My love story started out as anything but.
    The thought of one person forever made me sick. The only commitment I was nearing was a bond between Netflix and myself. Together, Forever. Cat lady here I come…and to be honest, that was fine with me. But things have a way a changing.

    After a dating fiasco in school, Casey and I’s feelings of hatred toward each other had become mutual. This feeling followed us into our college years. The mention of his dread name lit a fire under me like nothing else and we moved on towards other ventures.t was Casey who decided he wanted to rekindle our friendship. Influenced by one of our friends, I relented to a “Trial Facebook Friendship” only. Every night when I went to the library and logged into Facebook, there would be a message to chat with Casey. His persistence was annoying, even when he began asking me out on dates. I remained stubborn and disinterested.

    It wasn’t until after a couple years of failed attempts to win me over that I came to the realization that the man who cared about me the most had been there all along. He knew my high points and my lows, my trials and my triumphs. And he fought for me still. The thing that was holding me back was the idea that I didn’t deserve love at all. It’s funny the things you notice when you allow yourself to take a chance. Here I am now planning a wedding with the love I never deserved but I always needed. Because of his persistence, I am now lucky to have my very own Prince Charming; one who opens my door for me, sings off-key to me, and makes me practice the scene from Dirty Dancing for our wedding day 😉 I guess what I’m thankful for most this season is the opportunity for a change of heart and a conviction that love can truly find you if you let it.

    I’m thankful for toasted turkey sandwiches with avocado and mozzarella cheese because they are delicious. And many other sandwiches.

  10. Amanda Christensen says:

    Today (and every day really!) I am grateful for a loving God who knows me and knows what I need at each specific point in my life. At this time in my life, I have been given exactly what I need to succeed! Especially my loving and supportive fiancé Garrett!

  11. Elizabeth Curtis says:

    I am thankful for this website!!! I look at it every day because it makes me happy to see the many talented people in this world and the creativity they possess.

  12. Jaycee Loveless says:

    I’m thankful for my wonderful husband to be. I never thought I would find my soul mate so early on in my life and I’m so excited and thankful that I will be able to be sealed to him for time and eternity.

  13. Annelise Haderlie says:

    I am thankful for so many things this year, my family who is always there for me and my future husband who supports me even when I decide to tackle crazy tasks like creating a cake in the shape of an owl when I should really be studying for midterms. I am thankful for the love I feel from everyone around me and for the many people who work to make this world a more beautiful and happy place.

  14. Brianna says:

    I am thankful for all of my friends and family and the amazing talents they share with everyone. They all make the world a better place. I am extremely thankful for my fiancé in being patient with me when I am stressed and making me happy when I am sad and always being there for me.

  15. Colin Riley says:

    My fiancé looks at UBB all the time so I wanted to enter this just as a surprise for her. I love being engaged even if it took four years of chasing her down… I am grateful for her and that she said yes.

  16. Megan Carlisle says:

    Followed. 🙂

    I am so very grateful for the US postal service.. And mailboxes.. And the brave souls who battle the fierce blizzards of Utah every single day (besides Sundays of course) to deliver my weekly love letters from my dream boat of a man serving his mission in Indiana! What’s a love story without a two year delay anyway?

    Am I allowed to play even if he’s not quite home yet?? 🙂
