30 Days of Thankfulness {Day 4}

Each day this month (except weekends) I'm joining up with Katie to share with you the many things I am thankful for.  I'd love to hear what you're thankful for.  Won't you join us?

Day 4:
I'm thankful to know, and have the support of, this blogging community. 

This weekend, I met up with some of my favorite local milspouse bloggers for the second time.  We gathered at South Coast Winery in Temecula, participated in a short tasting, then had lunch.  Nicole nailed her description of our relationship.  I feel like I've known these women forever (although we've only hung out twice) and their support and encouragement means the world to me.  I think it helps that we know a bit about each other from reading the other's blogs and then we also have that special connection that I believe is unique to military spouses.

Just like our first meet up, we had a fabulous day, the conversation was easy and the food and wine were delicious.

I'm not a wine drinker but there was one wine here that I could have finished a glass of, it was so smooth.  Maybe I should have paid attention to what it was.
The grounds at the winery were gorgeous.  A perfect wedding location.

I cannot say enough about these ladies.  They're amazing!  We're already planning our next get together in December and we're always looking for more awesome milspouse bloggers to join in our fun.  If you're interested in the details of our next "blate", just shoot one of us an email, we'd love to have you join us!
