I'm Thankful For...

Happy Thanksgiving my American readers! :)

I hope you're all getting ready to stuff your face, but not too much. Today, I wanted to talk about a few things I'm thankful for this year. Enjoy!

I love my day job and my freelance job.

During the day, I'm a medical biller and the people I work with are like family for the most part. We might have disagreements sometimes, but we always move past it. We also love to eat, so that just adds to the great environment.

At night, I edit books on the side. It keeps me busy and I love reading amazing stories before anyone else can read them. I'm so proud of all the authors I've worked with this year and glad I met new ones to work with as well.

Somehow, my coworkers encouraged me to go hiking and I'm very thankful they did.

At the moment, as the days are shorter, I only hike with one coworker. I'm so thankful that we're about the same fitness level and we can both rely on each other when it comes to hiking after work. I find hiking better than going to the gym because I literally have no choice but to keep going because I have to get to my car to get home. :)

I have four authors I want to highlight because they've made quite an impression this year.

Lisa Kessler - What a woman! She lights up a room and inspires everyone around her. Also, getting to work on her manuscripts is so satisfying, which makes me love my freelance job even more.

Laura Kaye - I have enjoyed every single book from her ever since I started reading her Hard Ink series. What a legend. 

Stacey Kennedy - If BDSM is your kind of story, she is your go-to author. Seriously, she makes BDSM romantic and so enticing. Her books are so well-written unlike other more popular books.

Sidney Halston - She's a new author to me this year and I'm so glad I am reading her books now. She has a talent for capturing her audience and I can't wait to read more of her books in the future.

I love my room. It's huge, it's peaceful, and I have lovely roommates. Not to mention, the house and neighborhood are fairly quiet. What a dream come true!

You may or may not know, but for the past few years, I hated the holidays; last year was the worst. But this year, I decided to decorate and enjoy the holidays in whatever small way that I can. In a slight turn of events, it turns out that I actually would be able to spend Thanksgiving with my mom. You have no idea how excited I am. I bought four slices of cake from my new favorite bakery and I can't wait to devour them. 

Let me know in the comments what you're thankful for. Also, let me know what you ate. I hope you have a great holiday!
