Normally posts like this come at Thanksgiving, but truth is I’ll be too busy to write something by then, so I’m posting a week early. 😅

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, no doubt. Though that could be said for every year that I am alive and in good health. That said, three events that come to mind:

The older I get, the more I realize how lucky I truly am. I’m married to in incredible woman, I am part of a loving and supportive family, I have professional success beyond what I realized ever possible, and I have my mental & physical health.

This year, Lorena and I are going to Michigan to celebrate Thanksgiving. My brother and his family recently moved back to the U.S. from Germany, so it is the first time we all are together celebrating the holiday together (yet another thing to be grateful for)!

We will be relaxing, going to a hockey game (go Wings!) and heading to Ohio to visit my grandpa. Afterwards, we fly from Detroit to Mexico City for a quick trip to celebrate Lorena’s younger sister graduating from university.

Heading back to Austin, we will catch our breath briefly before doing the rounds again for Christmas and the new year!

Lorena and I are off to Connecticut again to visit family. The trip is quick to celebrate a couple of birthdays, but it’s means a little more than that to me.

Lorena and I completed a trip to Lake Tahoe (and Reno, NV). It was two purposed: to relax, and to see if we might be interested in moving there in the near future, as life in Texas is not really for us.

The short of it is that we think we could see ourselves in Reno. It’s an interesting area with a lot of outdoor activity. Austin has a better city, but the surrounding area and weather make Reno tempting.

No decisions being made just yet. We want to visit some more places first before we make the decision to pack-up.

Until then, here are a few glimpses of the scenery around Tahoe. It’s absolutely stunning. If you haven’t gone, grab an Airbnb. It’s worth it.

For a number of years now, I have had an urge to take contribute to a non-profit cause. The problem is, I can never land on where to dedicate time and money.

As of writing this, I have been studying Spanish for a year and a half. I’m so close to fluency, all I need is one more push!
