A Great Big Thank You!

To David – My Love – thanks for always believing in me and for loving me so dang big!!  I love our life and look forward to so many more years together.  ❤  Thanks for all the adventures we have shared and all the ones to come.  For the surprises, the unconditional love, ALL the shenanigans and laughter.  You do complete me.  I love you most, forever and a day.  Thanks to Daddy and Mama for teaching me the value of family and friends and that we should be havin’ a “get-together” every chance we get.  For a wonderful raisin’ on a beautiful farm 👩‍🌾 in East Tennessee, a place that I still call ❤ Home Sweet Home ❤.  For all the great memories, love and laughter and the memories we continue to make, Daddy, I thank you and I love you 😘 more than you can ever know.  Buddy - I love you most and thanks for ALWAYS being in my corner cheering me on – no matter what!  We have been through so many things over the years together and YOU are the best brother/friend ever! 🙂 Mama - I hope this little corner of the internet that I am building to teach, share and build up others makes you as proud of me as I’ll always be of you. 😇  Thanks for teaching me to cook and encouraging my creativity.  Thanks for passing on your love of travel to me. 🧭🌏  I miss you every single day and I know that you are smiling down on me and A Dash of Southern Grit. 

To ALL the other people who have helped to shape me into the woman that I am today – thank you!!  Your continued love and support mean the world to me.
